    Yes. Well actually my guitar guy did all the work. When I decided to have it repainted I figured that would be a good time to convert it to a fixed bridge. How that's done? He filled in the floyd rose recess with matching mahogany. Then after refinishing the guitar a schaller 455 bridge was installed. It all turned out incredibly well. Even up close it's impossible to tell it was ever anything different.

    Huh, totally didn't know this thread existed. I'll bite.

    My main guitars are all Caparisons.

    Two 1996 TAT-IIs. The yellowish one used to be sunset red as well but was refinished years ago. It's getting a headstock rebuild and refin soon.

    [​IMG]

    2003 Angelus that used to be Jona Weinhofens. This is the one that was obliterated on tour and had the headstock reattached and that part of the joint rebuilt.

    [​IMG]

    And a 2005 Angelus that was a time capsule piece. Dude bought it new, used it briefly then put it into its case for the next decade. Even has all the paperwork and such with it. Just got some gold EMG 57/66's for it that should arrive Monday.

    Plus I've previously owned a Dellinger HGS Trem, a Chattinv Bird Angelus and currently have a Chatting Bird Dellinger that I'm fooling round with.

    Did you get Jona's off eBay? I saw one of his up for sale on there like forever ago, and would have bought it if I had the cash. . . Anyway just curious if it's the same one I saw years ago

    Nope. Got this one from a dude named Chris who proceeded to have it repaired as the guitar started like this. It was pretty smashed.

    Anybody got a horus Deep Sea, Snow Cloud, or Scarab they wanna sell? Hit me up. Actually, hit me up is you have any Horus you wanna sell that's not a natural finish.

    Yea, I've been watching Reverb, Ebay, and All of craigslist like a hawk waiting for something I like to pop up. Everything that's come up is either super modded or beat to hell. I just want something in good condition that's not heavily modded (I can handle not having the original pickups as I will change them anyway). There was a Black Rose Horus sitting on ebay for a while that I really wanted. It sold as I was about to pull the trigger on it. I almost cried. I would love a black rose horus. The scarab that's currently on ebay looks a bit weird to me. Most of the Scarabs I've seen have been on the greenish side, but this one is almost completely black with green flecks. I don't want a black guitar or anything close to it. Those days are behind me. It may be the pictures as the lighting (and white balance) looks a bit off, and I have asked for better pics, but he hasn't sent me any yet.

    I used to have a Snow Cloud and a Deep Sea. I should have never sold them. I would love to get my hands on the same snow cloud again as my late father bought it for me and it was probably my favorite guitar I've ever had feel and tone wise. The deep sea for whatever reason felt quite a bit stiffer even though they were from the same year. But, the deep sea was toured heavily as well so that may have had something to do with it.

    Edit: There is an old school apple horn I've been looking at. Its black with the apple horn logo in silver below the bridge. I was thinking about picking it up. How much different are they from a Horus?

    How do these compare to, say, MusicMan? No way for me to try one, but I was digging the FX-AM series. They are VERY expensive however for barebones guitars.

    MusicMan are my reference in terms of tone, quality, and range, so figured I'd ask the experts on here and particularly those who have had both brands :)
