FS: Caparison TAT, Dellinger + Custom Shop 8 String

Post by VVolverin3 » Tue Jan 05, 2016 9:14 pm

New year, new thread. Same stuff but adding my TAT into the mix.

All guitars in good condition and have been living in their cases in my closet for the last few months. I just don't play anymore. :(

Would prefer straight sales as I'm saving for a car, but will consider trading down + cash (e.g. for an ESP LTD, non-prestige Ibanez, PRS SE, that kind of thing)



Caparison TAT - Frozen Sky

Awesome and rare TAT I Frozen Sky Caparison model. Stunning guitar, plays fantastic. Arch top, angled neck pocket, comfortable neck contour, beautiful Caparison signature clock inlays, a mix of Caparison and Seymour Duncan pickups and a Schaller built Floyd Rose bridge. Add to that the utterly unique frozen sky finish and it's absolutely killer.

Body: Alder
Neck: Maple
Fretboard: Ebony
Scale: 25.4"
Bridge: Schaller Floyd Rose
Controls: 1x Vol, 1x Tone, 5-way switch
Bridge pickup: Caparison PH-R
Middle pickup: Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound
Neck pickup: Seymour Duncan Hot Rails
Finish: Frozen Sky

Price: $2500

Caparison Dellinger - Green/Black Flame

One of the best super strats in existence... in my opinion anyway! This one has been heavily customised. This one started out as two black dellingers, one with a tremolo and fancy inlays, and one with a fixed bridge and no inlays. The owner swapped the necks so he could have the fixed bridge with the fancy inlays and sold the the trem version with no inlays. I picked it up somewhere along the way and had some more changes made (work done by Cam Rees from Custom Guitar Works, and he did an awesome job):

* Install a locking nut so the trem can be used properly
* Re-route the body to swap the pickup layout from HSS to HH
* Add a flame maple veneer to the body and headstock
* Finish in black/green split
* Install bareknuckle pickups
* Re-string, setup, all that fun stuff

Specs

Body: Mahogany
Neck: Maple
Fretboard: Ebony
Scale: 25.4"

ET Tomahawk FX-8 (Custom shop)

Long time custom 8 string build from ET Guitars - Ernie Taylor in NSW. Inspired by the Meshuggah Ibanez 8 string model, but with some significant changes to woods/dimensions/etc. Basically a brand new custom shop guitar. For the record, I have owned and played some nice Ibanez prestige models and this is way better than any of them (imo of course).

Body: Ash
Neck: 5pc Wenge/Bubinga
Fretboard: Ebony
Scale: 27"
Bridge: Edge III-FX
Controls: 1x Vol, 1x Tone, 3-way switch
Bridge pickup: Cold Sweat (C)
Neck pickup: Holy Diver (A)
Finish: Stained black

Tomahawk shape which is similar to an RG basically, with a different headstock. Also the body depth has been reduced by about 3mm to make the guitar weigh a bit less. Also comes with a basic hard case.

Price: $2500
