Orbit 7-CZQ

Cazqui Signature Model

The Caparison Orbit 7-CZQ, Cazqui (猫曼珠-nekomanju- ex. NOCTURNAL BLOODLUST) signature model was developed over the course of two years. Based on the classic Caparison Orbit model with a through-neck and unique curved top shape, a 7-string design was adapted to embody the various design ideals of the Japanese guitarist.

We designed a unique pickguard with Cazqui, a gold mirrored pickguard, to compliment the white body and gold hardware, finished to reflect his aesthetic tastes. The maple fingerboard produces precise, articulate notes with good bite and a tight low end. Adorned with Black Clock inlays, black fingerboard and headstock binding, it makes the distinctive appearance stand out even further.

In order to ensure maximum tuning stability, which is required for Cazqui’s intense stage performances, the neck is strengthened by embedding twin titanium bars within the 5-piece Maple & Walnut through-neck structure. It is also fitted with a top-quality Schaller LockMeister 7-string Tremolo bridge, ensuring ultimate reliability.

The Orbit 7-CZQ comes loaded with a set of Fishman 7-String Modern Humbucker Alnico / Ceramic active pickups. Controlled with a Push-Pull volume pot, Switchcraft 3-way toggle pickup selector and a “Kill Switch”, which is indispensable for his playing style. Pulling up the volume pot switches to Fishman’s “Voice 2” sound, which emulates a passive tone. This guitar also features a Fishman USB rechargeable battery pack so there is no need to replace a battery. At Cazqui’s request, the Jack Plate is a flat type. (The use of an L type plug is recommended.)

Cazqui has built his entire career with the Caparison Dellinger 7 series. “With my Caparison Dellinger 7, I have overcome all adversities both in Japan and abroad. Based on nearly 10 years of personal experience, I regularly met with Caparison’s designer, Mr. Itaru Kanno. My Caparison guitars always withstand the most aggressive live performances and I am continually impressed with how the guitar’s original tone is never impaired by any harsh playing environment. The performance precision is extreme, with a practical design and specification. For 2019, when the splendour of the rock guitar scene was about to be lost, we have created a “perfect balance” of a sharp and gorgeous design while embodying a soul that still shines. I am sincerely proud that I could channel my life as a guitarist and put my name to the Orbit 7-CZQ model, projecting the most advanced technology boasted by the prestigious brand that is Caparison Guitars.”Cazqui
