Horus-WM - Discontinued 2013

  • The Horus-WM features our Walnut-Mahogany composite body construction along with a bound neck and headstock. A choice of Maple or Ebony can be specified for the fingerboard material.

    The Caparison Horus was originally introduced in 1995 and was developed in collaboration with the Japanese guitarist, Chacha Maru. The Horus is unique in design, featuring 27 frets but with a standard scale length, thus removing the need for the player to adjust their technique. To ensure the higher frets are accessible the Horus features a compact body design and deep cutaway.

    About WM Construction

    The ‘WM’ (Walnut-Mahogany) construction consists of a Walnut top and Mahogany back producing a balanced sound throughout the frequency range.

    The Caparison Horus-WM features Caparison's own design SH-27F and PH-R pickups* controlled by a simple 3-Way selector switch and single master volume control configuration.

    For the guitarist who requires greater control and a wide range of tonal possibilities the Horus-M3 can be specified to include the versatile ‘Option Control’ modification. For further information please click here.
