Ever since I saw your review of one I've been dying to get my hands on one, but I can't find one anywhere and that's a whale of a guitar to throw $2k at having never even held one. They are beautiful just the same. I read your review ages ago, but what do you think of it now? I don't think I could part with $2k without ever playing one but man they are beautiful.

It's incredible. Pictures don't do it justice. It's looks are amazing, It sounds out of this world, it is designed by talented geniuses, It NEVER goes out of tune however much you play it or hit the whammy system. It always stays perfectly in tune. I've had it 4 months and it is still in perfect tune as I test it every week to make sure.

I'd advise anyone to try one out. The Horus had a bit of a wooden plank neck but the Caparison neck is perfection.

Why was I stupid? One little lack of Concentration and its damaged badly. Why couldn't it have happened to my Parker Nitefly which is natural wood anyway and wouldn't have been noticeable. sad.gif Life sucks like that.

I will take one when I'm home tonight. I need to take one for the shop anyway to see if it can be fixed. They said it should be fixable but they need to see it and they quoted me £300.

Oh maaaaaaaaaan, from what you've described it looked like it's the end of the world. That's a MINOR damage - that's not even considered a damage if you look at the place it's scratched! smile.gif So cheer up - really - there is nothing to waste your nerves on! smile.gif

Man, thats just a little scratch! I was thinking you'd taken at least a 3 inch square chunk out by the way you were describing it. Not the end of the world I dont think, if you still have the pieces that will clear up no problem!

If they're going to charge you £300 to repair that little chip, the repair job better be unoticable.

OC, may I ask what you described to them when getting a quote? I would think that would be easily repairable for less than that.

hmm, put it this way
i have had a amazingly terrible month, schools been so boring i want to shoot myself, schools been so rediculous about tiny small things such and instead of any good neat pants;such as my pin striped ((very very lightly pinstripe));we can only now wear plain pants WTF!, i cut my right hand index finger with ice skating blades and its still not healed so i cant hold plectrum properly, my newly invented practice regime has been destroyed thanks to all these random f?8cked up evens thats been happening to me resulting in me not improving a bit, accidents keep happening to me and i dont think they are accidents anymore; things keep falling on me and stuff and i keep somehow cutting my hands in different places with random things that shouldnt be that sharp that i would bleed for that long because it cut so deep (like the metal bit on the slidey bit inside my desk!!) so yeah, at least you are physically fine, because i am both metally and psysically screwed up!
that cheer you up? hope it did coz compared to me u are in heaven

Hopefully the quote will come down when they see the damage then smile.gif I think I probably described it pretty badly sad.gif I've sent them the pics so will go proper quote tomorrow. It's an actual Caparison dealer though so they will probably charge a bit more. I'm guessing they wont be able tosort the paintjob out though? sad.gif

I sent them pictures now of the damage and they changed their quote of 300 pound to 150-200 pound smile.gif So that is slightly better I guess biggrin.gif

Some of us are more anal about the looks of our guitars you know, I mean if my RG 20th got a ding like that I would also be very very upset.
