To mark the 20th Anniversary of Caparison Guitars, we wanted to uphold our progressive thinking, but still give a nod to our heritage. This special edition 20th Anniversary Horus model has the same M3 Mahogany/Maple/Mahogany body construction of its modern counterparts, a new 2015 Horus body shape and three way pickup selector, but to mark our anniversary the 20thAnniversary it will be available in one of the most recognised and sought after Caparison colours ever produced, the distinctive and alluring Iris Violet. Each paint finish hand applied by Mr Itaru Kanno himself and each one totally unique.
The Horus is indeed an extraordinary instrument, a true modern day classic due to its phenomenal playability, unimpeded access to all 27 frets and the ability to take on a plethora of differing styles with ease.
The 20th Anniversary Horus-M3 embodies the pioneering attitude of its ancestors and further improves on it while making a bold statement with an eye-catching and stunning finish perfectly complimented by its gold hardware - functional beauty created to ensure that the audience's attentions are drawn to those who chose to wield it.
The M3 composite tonewood body construction
The M3 composite tonewood body construction consists of a central Maple section sandwiched between two Mahogany sides with the neck bolted directly to the Maple section. The result is a balanced sound with focused low frequencies and rich sustain.
