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 II+S features Caparison's own design high-output PH-F and PH-R pickups* controlled by the new Schaller Model M, 5 way Mega Switch, which now gives the guitar even more pickup switching options.
