    Horus Neck Swap :)

    So I had an epiphany last night. Was chattin to the GF on the phone looking at my capa's hanging on the wall and thought to myself, 'I want the maple neck off my HGS on the Scarab!'. So this morning I quickly asked on the Caparison Owner's Group on facebook to see if it would work. Everything was sweet and I got underway.

    Here are the results
    Pic's turned out pretty horrible unfortunately. Must of lost some quality after emailing/uploading.

    I'm terrible at describing these sorts of things, but the Rosewood (horus) neck has a more square/flatter feel. A little thinner, whereas the maple (HGS) neck is slightly more rounded I guess. Yet more compact ? haha sorry man.

    I'm confused. I see 2 pics of each guitar with the same necks in both pics. Is this the before or after pics of the neck swap? I'm assuming before.
