Angelus-M3B

  • If ever there was a true modern classic! The Angelus M3B returns with new fretboard markings and a new contemporary colour option. The Angelus excels at every musical styling thrown at it, from blues to the lowest drop-tuned extreme metal. The familiar shaping and the sensual carve top add to the allure of this elegant design, with a perfect blend of tone woods and pickups providing a truly consummate instrument.

    The sustain given by the M3 body structure is accented by the Maple arched top which adds a crispness to the high end. Fitted with original Caparison "PH-F"/"PH-R" Pickups to give the guitar a powerful and focused sound. The through body stringing / Tailpiece construction has been carefully positioned to maximise the tension and stability of the guitar.

    The M3B composite tonewood body construction.

    The Caparison M3B construction consists of a central Maple section sandwiched between two Mahogany sides with a two piece Maple top. This composite tonewood construction results in a slight increase in weight over our traditional Angelus body. To compensate the overall body depth has been reduced by 3mm. The M3B body construction is designed to give maximum sustain.
