Mattias is more than just a modern day virtuoso, as his originality, quirky lines and mind boggling control of the fretboard and ability to coax harmonics in almost superhuman form put him in a league of his own; some of his antics are even more dazzling once we realize he usually has nothing but a guitar straight into the amp for the vast majority of his work.
Caparison set out to produce a guitar capable of accommodating Mattias’ impressive array of techniques which ultimately resulted in the Apple Horn Yellow TT; a personalised take on our popular Horus shape in a striking yellow finish with Mattias’ instantly recognizable “Apple Horn” carving on the top, featuring the Swedish True Temperament system’s impressive intonation accuracy, regardless of where you are on the neck.
Fast, tonally rich, and accurate to previously unattainable extent, the Apple Horn Yellow is, like Mattias, in a league all of its own.
