Item : Caparison TAT2
Seller : Paul Butcher
Status : For Sale
Asking Price : Will Take Sensible Offers (Cost me £1750 ($3500) buying in the UK) and shipping to be decided depending on where you live. I will ship anywhere in the world but it may cost a lot to send to America with insurance.

Pictures found of my specific Caparison TAT2 here MINUS pattern chip (I will upload a picture of defect tonight): https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/wiki/inde...son_TAT2_Review

Description:

This is an 11 month old Caparison TAT2 in great condition but with a small chip on the lower front of the body. Comes with the original Caparison Case and whammy bar. I am selling it because I bought it and loved it to bits and possibly loved it too much that when a small bit was accidentally chipped off it I couldn't look at the guitar again. It is the single greatest guitar I've ever played and looks incredibly beautiful. It is a piece of engineering and artistic brilliance. It isn't just a guitar but a perfectly designed and crafted object. It's beautiful to play on and has screaming pick ups of the highest quality. I can thoroughly recommend this guitar to anyone. There is NOTHING wrong with the guitar apart from the small aesthetic problem of the chipped paintwork. I'm willing to sell for a fair bit under what I paid as I want somebody to take this guitar off me that will love it like I did. I want it to go to a good home. smile.gif

I really need the money and I can't look at it at it's my baby. I love it beyond belief. It comes with following specs:

I'm not gonna say how much exactly I'm looking for but I'm willing to sell for a lot less than I paid for it. I need the money for other things smile.gif

I will post the picture of the small damage tomorrow when I get chance to take a photo.

I will sell for 1000 plus delivery. The closer you are to me the more of a deal you are getting. You wont find one cheaper in europe and definitely in uk. If i dont get any offers in 2 weeks its on ebay.

No lol. £1000 (UK Pounds) sorry. I think I'd have to shoot myself if I sold it for $1000. biggrin.gif It's $2000 and I'm not sure if you can find it cheaper than that in USA. It costs $3500 if you buy in the UK.

haha. The number one priority for me is to pay off a little debt I have and to learn to drive with this money I'm afraid. I will be buying another Caparison in the future that is for sure but unfortunately when times must I have to get rid of my guitar that is worth the most. I'm still considering your guitar but I'm just not sure it is a wise decision for me yet.

Am I the only one here that doesn't mind a dinged up guitar? I think they look cool as hell after they've been 'played'. Though I think fake relicing looks SO LAME.
Look at Stevies #1 - Coolest looking guitar I've ever come across.

The dings showed you played her and you love her regardless to what she looks like =)

You can find them on ebay for 1600 at times.

But, still sad to see you let it go.

Man is it a solid color guitar, if it is black or white, fixing it might be easy.

Sorry, didn't see the description, take a picture of it, I'd like to see the chip, I fix my guitars all the time, I don't like letting them go. If you love it that much maybe it is worth to give it a try

Oh my that is going to be hard to match, it would be easier if it was a solid color, but it could be changed, what I would do is sand fix it with black, and do a sunburst to black to hide it, it isn't easy if you haven't done it, but a luthier would be able to do it. And make it look natural
