    I love the Horus HGS, looks sooo cool, happy NGD.

    You're saying you could potentially be going

    Horus HGS w/D-Sonic (one of my favourite pickups) into an OD808 (my favourite OD) into a 5150II (one of the greatest amps of all time) and you AREN'T?!?!?!

    You mad bro?

    Lol, I get that, enjoy it man, it's a cool ass guitar.

    The stock pickups actually sound great in the HGS. When i switched my old one to a Painkiller and Tone Zone S I was not completely happy. It probably sounded better stock. Walnut is a weird wood and the stock PH-R and Sh-27 pickups seem to complement it well. Now when I swiched my regular mahogany bodied Horus to a BKP and Dimarzio it was a world of difference for the better.

    That's the perfect Horus. I want it real bad. I have a Dellinger that matches it. Let me know when you want to swap :lol:

    well mate im trying not to outpower the lead guitarist in my band. but yeah the walnut is a strange wood so a pickup swap can be good, and bad. and for now it sounds just the way i like it :D

    I had the chance to try some Caparison in Japan 2 years ago. Those guitars are sick!

    I never found the feel of them comfortable at all [personally], but they are definietly pretty too look at. The trans-black Angelus is still one of the best looking guitars Ive ever seen.

    I found Caparison pretty comfortable. Not the most comfortable guitar I've ever played though.

    The Dellinger I have at the moment is super comfortable... its actually insanely nice. I've played some duds, but a good Caparison is as good as you could wish for.

    its so f-inn Metal, but at the same time good at everything. it does Andy Timmons to hardcore speed picking with a clarity i've never heard in any other guitar.

    im playing all kinds of styles, but atm im hired as a session guitarist for Gaia Dystopi. Check them out its AWSOME!

    Looks great! Can't go wrong with a Caparison! :) I've owned five of 'em over the years, all extremely nice guitars!
