Just as Caparison Guitars has persisted to develop in our design philosophies and production processes, the Dellinger Prominence represents an evolution of the established Dellinger model, continually upgraded and enhanced.
A versatile yet unconventional approach, the Dellinger Prominence embodies the melding of functionality and unorthodox thinking with tried-and-true construction methods. But it doesn’t stop there.
The bolt-on neck is made up of a 5-piece Maple/Walnut construction, with silky-smooth playability with rock-solid strength and stability. This build, alongside the curve-top ‘M3’ body, generates an enhanced degree of resonance, adding sweet mid-to-high frequencies. Furthermore, the unconventional pickup arrangement and push-pull tone pot has opened up new spectrums of sound by splitting the coils of the both the neck and bridge humbuckers simultaneously.
The result is an instrument that challenges both perceived conventions of guitar construction and the player’s creativity. With the new possibilities of the Dellinger Prominence, nothing stands in the way of you and your music.
