Or:



I'm buying in the next couple of months so need to decide. All are the same price. Well the first one is a little cheaper.

The 3rd is quite similar to the one you have or not? The finish at least. Sorry i know nothing about Caparision guitars sad.gif ... but now i start to get interested even if its not my type of guitars.

I personally hate gold hardware, but out of these I like the lightest one the best, if I got that one I'd change the hardware out for black or chrome ASAP. smile.gif As for the others, I don't like blue guitars, and black is too common for a metal guitar.

The black one is black clouds rather than just black. I love it. And yes I normally hate gold hardware but I think on this model it fits. All three of them you can get with black hardware by the way smile.gif It's just I wanted gold on this particular model. And the bottom one is still very different. Similar colour but has 27 frets rather than 24 and a different pickup configuration and style smile.gif

My friend is currently in Japan and is bringing me one back. I just need to tell him which one I want smile.gif

I vote for a Michael Romeo Signature Dellinger, and if that's not your cup of tea, I vote for number 3 out of the models you posted, the Horus is it?

Also, I too normally hate gold hardware, but on most Caparison's I admit it does look pretty sweet!

I do like Michael Romeo but I wouldn't buy an artist guitar and yeah they are all Horus models smile.gif

My vote goes for the white one, seeing as you already have a darker colored caparison.

Nice guitars! I would go for the second one! It looks great. However I don't kow if the differences are just the colours or if there are some other differences like pick ups... In appearence I preffer the second one.

hmmm, tough choice, I like all three laugh.gif

I agree with WRK perhaps go for one a bit different from the TATII

My cash would probably buy the dark blue (3rd one down) but the 1st one is pretty stunning as well! smile.gif


ooh I dunno, in the words of the advert "I`m ... not helping much am I Dad!"

True, the black clouds does make it stand out of the massive crowd of black flying Vs, Strats, and Les Pauls. I don't think you can really go wrong with any of those. Those guitars do look sick though, they look unique, and different, but they didn't go overboard to make it unique(ok, maybe the 27 frets is pushing it laugh.gif). I would love one, but the 25.5 scale, bolt-on or neck-through guitars have never really worked for my style of music.

Every Caparison Guitar is hand painted by one guy. They only make 40 a month. It's crazy smile.gif.

These are really nice axes and you're facing really tough decision. I would take the third one:).

I like the first one...it looks like marble. I LOVE the last one though...but I am partial to blue guitars, hence my Ibanez!

I think you should wait and find a guitar with more frets though! tongue.gif

The first and third ones both look lovely. I'd be leaning toward to blue one, if only it came with chrome hardware.

If I had to choose between just these 3 guitars, then definitely the low one. The color is kinda nice smile.gif
