What is the difference between regular Caparison and C2 Series models?The regular Caparison models (Regular, Signature & Custom Line Series) are hand crafted in very small batches and in limited numbers. Each one passes though the designer’s hands and he personally sets each guitar up and even applies some of the custom finish options himself. These guitars are truly “master built” to the highest possible quality, and professional standards.
The regular Caparison models are all constructed using the best quality parts and materials, including Japanese and German made hardware. They also have Caparison Design pickups, which are the result of over 20 years of careful research and development, and are another integral part of the Caparison sound. They feature more intricate details than the C2 Series models, such as the mother of pearl and abalone clock inlays and composite bodies. The quality of finish is tightly controlled on both ranges, and all C2 Series shipments are also inspected by Caparison’s designer before being shipped.
The Caparison C2 Series are manufactured in larger volumes which helps keep the costs down but, they still incorporate the Caparison design ideals and high quality.
Where are Caparison guitars made?Caparison guitars are made in Japan.
