TAT Special CL14 - Discontinued 2015

  • Custom Line
    Caparison TAT Special CL14 Heel

    The Caparison Custom Line is a special limited edition line produced from the highest grade and rare materials.

    The plans for the original TAT Special began in 1995 and debuted in 2009.
    The TAT Special has now been reintroduced as an upgraded custom line model for 2014.
    As well as a re-designed neck heel, The TAT Special CL14 also features a 5A grade Flame Maple top on a Mahogany Back to form its non-symmetrical body shape.

    The Caparison PH- R Pickup perfectly enhances the tone of this guitar, and although now the standard Humbucker for most Caparison Guitars, was originally developed for use in the TAT Special.

    The TAT Special CL14 has a 5 piece Maple/Walnut through neck construction for strength and balance and has an oiled finish which is not common on most through neck guitars.

    The ‘Rotary Switch Mode’ gives the guitar a multitude of usable pickup position options.

    Caparison TAT Special CL14 Switching Options

    The 3-way pickup selector switch activates rotary switch mode when in the center position (2). The the 4-way rotary switch can then be used to change the pick-up output as detailed in the diagram above.
