    you won't regret it if you get one. Which model are you leaning towards? I think I've heard the TAT has the thinnest neck which would be most like the Ibanez...

    lol, if you're gonna spend that much on a guitar, I reckon you should play more than just that on it... :p

    Wow, that's a beautiful guitar. How much did it set you back?

    Damn you. That's a nice axe. What kind of pickups are in it? Are those just the regular ones, if so are you gonna put different ones in?

    it's just the regular ones, I'm pretty happy with them at the moment, I definately wouldn't change the neck pickup, that standard one sounds amazing, and if I did change the bridge pickup, I'd probably just get one of the bridge pickups from the Caparison Dellinger model, which are similar, but a bit more output, more guts overall... But for now, just the standards which are still great. ;)

    Hey, that looks pretty cool. Never played a Caparison though.

    I recently ordered a custom Carvin DC747 (7-string), which I should be getting the first week of November or something. New guitars rule.

    oooh, I'll be looking very hard at the Carvin 7 strings if Caparison don't get around to making a 7 string Horus... Tony MacAlpine uses one, that's good enough for me... :D

    I don't really like the gold on blue color scheme, the blue is nice, I just don't think it looks well with the gold. Other than that, pretty sweet.

    It's actually more green, and definately looks best with gold imo...


    Sweet! :)

    Thanks!
    I don't know (these pics are taken at my friend's place) but I'd wager money on it being the Necrophagist one.
