TAT Special 7 FM

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. The TAT Special 7 FM, with 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.

The PH7-b bridge pickup is a fundamental characteristic of a TAT-Special 7 that’s combined with the Caparison PH7-b 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.

The 3-way pickup selector switch activates rotary switch mode when in the center position. The the 4-way rotary switch can then be used to change the pick-up output.
