YOUR BEST SOURCE FOR PRO AUDIO GEAR. Caparison Apple Horn 8 8-String Guitar, True Temperament, Charcoal Black Matt.
Updated with a Charcoal Black Matt finish, FU-Tone 8 string bridge and Stainless Steel True Temperament frets, the Caparison Apple Horn 8 is, in our humble opinion, the pinnacle of extreme guitar design. The Walnut and Mahogany tone wood composite body helps to maintain that essential note definition needed when dealing with avant-garde guitar tunings. The highs remain crystal clear with a distinctive bell-like midrange and the low notes are tight yet thunderous. The fast and comfortable hand finished, beautiful 5-piece maple/walnut neck, offers up security for its extensive size. In addition, two titanium rods were built into the neck, eliminating any chance of warping and increasing the guitar's strength, stability and performance.
Add to this the 27 fret Stainless Steel True Temperament system on a select Ebony fingerboard and the exacting harmonics that this guitar produces sing out in perfect intonation. It's like a chamber orchestra in one instrument! "I own and have tried numerous eight string guitars but, never understood the full potential of the instrument until I had "The Beast in my lap (as my fellow Caparison friends like to call it). The usual thing out there nowadays, it seems, is to get an eight string, turn up the distortion, do a little "djent-djent-djent" on the two lowest strings and make a pseudo evil face to go with it. The Apple Horn 8 has so, so much more to offer.
The guitar is so well balanced, both in look and feel. I take a humble, sincere Viking bow to my dear buddies at Caparison for making this happen. This is not just another guitar.
