TAT Special FM

  • Custom Line

    The pinnacle of Caparison design are the now-legendary TAT Special.  It’s foundations were laid in 1995 with a 24-fret sample model and since then it’s continued to flourish and evolve into the technically sophisticated, elite instrument it is today.  It’s beautifully unique body structure, the Caparison Tat curve top, is an asymmetrical 27-fret design with an arched body top, resulting in a more comfortable, complimentary playing experience beyond the 12th fret.

    The ingenious evolutionary construction continues with the use of Flame Maple Top/MahoganyBack material for both sides, creating the lasting sustain of a sound that, due to it’s oiled-finish, luxury 5 piece Maple Walnut through-neck has lasting strength, stability and unquestionable quality. Caparison TAT Special 5 Piece neck-thru back
    The PH-R bridge pickup is a fundamental characteristic of a TAT-Special that’s combined with the Caparison “SH-27F” neck pick-up, obtaining an amazing clarity of sound that can be perfectly governed by Caparison’s unique Rotary Switch Mode.  Simple and practical, this pickup selector is an option that gives you a rich supply of tones that makes this guitar as versatile as it is beautiful.
