New for 2014, Caparison is launching five new guitars from our Regular model range, along with a raft of upgrades to all models. This includes the return of the TAT Special as a Custom Line 2014 limited edition model (pictured), which features a 5 piece, maple/walnut through neck design with a mahogany body back and a specially selected 5A flame maple top.
There are also two new 7 sting offerings in the range, the Dellinger7-M3 and Angelus7-M3B as well as a new Michael J. Romeo Signature model, the Dellinger-M3 MJR. The TAT II has been revised as the TAT II+S, to include more versatile pickup switching options.
The switches and input jacks have been upgraded on most models to Schaller made parts, and the Schaller and Caparison bridges now include upgraded electroplated corrosion resistant screws for ultimate durability.
Caparison has also teamed up with Reunion Blues to offer a customised version of their superb quality Reunion Blues Continental case, which now comes as standard with most Regular Caparison models for the best in luxury and protection for their instruments.

FINALLY, A SENSIBLE, STYLISH CASE THAT OUTPERFORMS WOOD AND PLASTIC …Caparison Guitars are happy to announce that from 2014 all regular models (excluding the Orbit) will be supplied with custom made Reunion Blues Continental Guitar Cases.
The RB Continental's water-resistant ballistic Quadraweave exterior surrounds a lightweight Flexoskeleton protection system of 1" thick high-density foam and EVA impact panels that offers enough protection to survive a 40-foot drop* without so much as a nick or scratch. Inside, a velvet tuck interior lining, solid-cell neck brace suspension system, and thick Softmesh-lined side panels cradle your instrument in a cocoon of scuff-proof luxury. And its Zero G palm-contoured handle with weight distributing foam core, knurled abrasion grid on top and bottom to resist scuffing, and hideaway backpack straps are designed for getting around in the real world – We are serious about supplying our players with the very best options available, and feel that with the Reunion Blues cases we are offering the best that you can get.
*We don't suggest that you try this drop test with your own guitar.
CAPARISON C2 SERIES REUNION BLUES AERO GUITAR CASE.
We are happy to announce that the new range of Japanese built Caparison C2 Series Guitars will be supplied with high quality custom Reunion Blues AERO Guitar Cases.

|There is no band that personifies rock and roll more than Motörhead.
Aftershock is Motörhead’s 21st studio album, and it’s as ferocious as anything they’ve ever done—a venerable achievement considering this Motörhead lineup has been together for almost two decades.
|When talking British thrash metal, ONSLAUGHT is of course the first name that springs to mind. Their comeback "Killing Peace" (2006) was a strong effort, with "Sounds Of Violence" (2011) the legendary Bristol based band delivered a new classic of the genre. Anyone would think it almost impossible to keep up this high level or even exceed it... but the thrash veterans have achieved the seemingly impossible, and their new album "VI" (released on September 20th) will be proof of it.
|EVERGREY guitarist Marcus Jidell releases his debut instrumental album, "Pictures From A Time Traveller", due out on August 16 via Lion Music.
"Pictures From A Time Traveller" has its own unique voice boasting incredible utilization of dynamics and a variety of styles all of which paint a vast number of picture in the listeners mind, something Marcus was keen to express while writing.
"When I write I see a lot of pictures and colours and that's what I've been trying to make the listener feel," he says. "If you listen carefully to 'Arctica', for example, you might feel the cold wind, the ice and snow, the silence of the Arctic winter that suddenly breaks when you discover the big polar bear that has been sneaking upon you.. And you start to run."
