    NGD! This is a first for me in many ways. This is my first Caparison! IT is a Tat II In Dark Night. I traded my JPX-7 for it. I really wanted to have a nice 6er around with some good pickups. This is also my first time playing some fishmans. It has the Devin Townsend sig Set in them and they are great! They have loads of gain in the first position and clean up very nicely when you pull up the tone knob to go to 2nd position. I have some Stringdrop Heavy 6 strings on it and they are perfect for getting the right tension in Drop C. The only thing I dont really like about the cappa is the forearm contour. It hurts my forearm if I play on it for a really long time. Overall the tat II with the fishmans are pretty dang awesome!

    Good actually. The neck itself is gloss, which I hate, but it isnt too sticky and feels great.

    Nice dude, I love the Through & Throughs; sounds like a great trade to me. And what a finish.
    Haven't seen as many Caps around here lately....I remember seeing quite a few pop up a couple years ago.
