The Angelus-NH introduces exciting variations to the classic Caparison Angelus-M3B design. With updates including a Schaller Floyd Rose Tremolo system and Fishman Fluence Modern Humbucker Pickups, the Angelus-NH offers a stunning range of sonic potential to suit the recording and performance demands of the modern professional guitarist.
This hand crafted guitar features a unique Mahogany-Maple-Mahogany (M3B) body with a beautiful 5A flamed maple top. The result is a warm mahogany timbre with extended brilliance, rich sustain, and tightened attack. An additional fullness and resonance is bolstered by a Set in Neck construction, with the aural nuances of the Angelus-NH extending far beyond the rock and metal genres it was designed for.
A hand selected master grade flame maple top finished in transparent white gloss adds a sophisticated artistry to this guitar’s elegant aesthetic. The maple fretboard features oval inlays which are part abalone and acrylic black, a mesmerizing ornamental subtly to an element of visual function.
The Fishman Fluence Modern Ceramic (Bridge) and Alnico (Neck) pickup combination offers players a plethora of options ranging from crisp, high output crunch and tight low end bridge voicings, to round, smooth, and articulate tones in the neck position. The Angelus-NH is the physical synergy of meticulous craft, quality components, and passionate design; sure to become a staple in the collections of serious players and enthusiasts alike.
