    Custom. Custom built out of Caparison parts in your house. :lol: Just a wee bit misleading, IMO.

    PS: It's your guitar and your auction, hope you get what you want for it, I just think it should say that you put it together and not imply that Caparison did. :shrug:

    Um, nothing on the guitar is "built from parts in my house." It's a Snow Cloud body paired with a maple neck from another Horus, 100% all Caparison stuff. It says right in the auction that's what it is. The only thing I put together was the neck onto the body, nothing else.

    I guess you're not familiar with the amount of gear I buy and sell. :lol:

    I've owned 18 Caparisons and about 50-60 guitars. I just like buying new stuff but can't afford to have a bunch of expensive guitars around so I just buy and sell a lot of 'em. I like trying out new guitars and such. I'm sure I'll regret this one though since it's doubtful Caparison will ever put a maple fretboard guitar into production.

    I think the point they are trying to make is that you should sell it at regular horus prices - just because you put on a different body doesnt mean that it will warrant the price you're asking.

    i THINK that's what they're trying to say, and it makes sense.

    A regular Horus is almost $2000 here, so I technically am. It's worth more than a regular Horus because of the maple neck/fretboard though.

    I bet if you put the original Oiled Walnut body back on it you'd have more people interested...

    I vouch for MegaDeth, he is as his subname says: "Caparison Slut".

    And yeah, my bank account knows Horuses cost just around 2k, the maple neck would add a few hundred to the cost.
