TAT - Discontinued Finishes 2012

  • The Caparison TAT series, featuring a through-neck design was one of the first Caparison series from the original 1995 line up. Production of this design ceased in 1997 however following overwhelming demand, 2006 saw its much-anticipated return. The re-introduced models feature new pickup control configurations and finishes.

    The Caparison TAT series has a unique structure to take advantage of the through-neck design: Typically, most guitars, the neck is relatively parallel to the body angle. The TAT series features an arched body top increasing that angle. In addition, the neck has a conical 350-400mm radius with a flattened rear profile and the heel & body cutaways are smooth, beautifully contoured and shaped. This results in a more comfortable playing position particularly when playing beyond the 12th fret.

    The Caparison TAT model features an SSH pickup layout, a master tone control with push-push centre and neck pickup coil split, master volume control and 5-Way selector switch.

    The TAT custom finish is applied by hand so each production model is visually unique.
