    My new Horus C2.

    Hey all. I've been interested in Caparison guitars for a long time, since I saw Soilwork and Arch Enemy using them. At closer look, they are as close to what I consider to be the perfect guitar as is available.

    Here is my new Horus C2.

    Welcome and congratulations! That Horus C2 looks pretty sweet. I sometimes wish the original series borrowed a couple of the appointments from the C2s. Enjoy that beauty!

    Got it!!! Very nice. Needs a setup though. Action is a little high on account of the Floyd being pulled forward.

    I was a little unsure of the DiMarzio pickup models selected for this model but they aren't bad. I'm using an EVH 5150 and have to be careful as they are very bright and bitey. I think that with a EL34 powered amp they may get a little too harsh. A clean sound is possible but not great.

    For an otherwise perfect shred guitar, I thought the neck would be a little thinner. But there are definite advantages to having a fatter neck.
