Thread: Caparison C2 Series...

  1. Caparison C2 Series...

    There will be lots more information and photos coming later this month. I have to say after seeing the latest samples, that the decision to move production to Japan has been well worth the resulting delay to their release.

    Here is a little teaser for you.....

    Thanks Gabriel.
    It's interesting to hear of the change. Where was production initially scheduled to take place?

    I've only read or heard little details of the C2 range. Are you able to outline the main differences between the C2 and the regular range for us? I'm assuming the C2 range won't be built as much by hand, but how will quality control and materials compare to what we've become used to?

    Caparison Horus HGS Pro BlackModded Natural Finish

  10. The regular Caparison models (Regular, Signature & Custom Line Series) are hand crafted in very small batches and in limited numbers. Each one passes though the designer, Itaru`s hands and he personally sets each guitar up and even applies some of the custom finish options himself. These guitars are truly “master built” to the highest possible quality, and professional standards.

    The regular Caparison models are all constructed using the best quality parts and materials, including Japanese and German made hardware. They also have Caparison Design pickups, which are the result of over 20 years of careful research and development, and are another integral part of the Caparison sound.

    They feature more intricate details than the new C2 Series models, such as the mother of pearl and abalone clock inlays and composite bodies. The quality of finish is also very tightly controlled on both ranges, and all C2 shipments will be individually inspected by Itaru himself before being shipped.

    Obviously the Caparison C2 Series will be manufactured in larger volumes which helps keep the costs down. They will still incorporate the Caparison design ideals and high quality, but they are targeted at the working musician who will accept less complex adornments in order to own a real Caparison.

    I know many of you would like to see details like the clock inlays on the C2 Series but, it’s one of the finer details which makes the regular Caparison models what they are, and are not practical for a higher volume production instrument at this price level.

    We originally looked at having the C2 Series produced in an excellent Chinese factory but, soon realised the benefits of having them produced in a very established, and well known premiere Japanese guitar factory. And we are very happy with the resulting models.
