    New Horus models look awesome! Wish they'd have kept the cool TAT finishes though having the same ones for both horii and TAT's kinda sucks.
    Orbit looks horrible now though =/

    The BlackRose Horus w. ebony fb is just perfect! I do wish they had kept the Black Night finish though. I've always preferred ebony on shred/metal guitars, so ditching rosewood, both tonally and visually, is a good choice imo.

    Now... whats the price gonna be?

    TAT Special is gone now, that's sad, i love asymetric bodies (i mean on the butt of the body).

    Wonder if they will someday come up with some 8 strings guitars...

    Hmm... Just noticed this in the Horus specs:

    Neck Finish: Oiled Finish

    Also, the headstock is with the 'Pro. Black' finish. Personally I would have preferred gloss.

    The maple fingerborad Dellingers look real nice!! However, I am a bit disappointed with the finishes the picked (not a fan of the transrose one). Altough I am sure they look way better in the flesh. The JSM model is smoking hot, would love to see some more pictures (and find about the price!).

    The new finishes look cool, as well as Joel's signature model.

    Just called Cranes. Prices still need to be confirmed but indicatively the JSM will retail for 3,199. good news is they expect to be able to lower the prices of the regular series models!!! This could be the excuse I needed to unload some gear...

    I am pretty sure that is what the guy told. It's basically 200 over the retails price of the Angelus TR. Kind of expensive for the flamed top, EMGs and binding if you ask me.

    After a closer look to the new models, all I can say is well done Caparison!! I think they have added many of the things that people have asked for over the years. Especially in the case of the Horus. Ebony, maple, binding, PHR... Let's hope the new prices are actually a bit lower. That could definitely help putting the brand back on the map.
