caparison going out of business?

Post by noob_pwn » Sat May 28, 2011 6:30 pm

There have been quite a few rumors floating around that itaru is having financial problems and caparison may be up for sale soon?
Can anyone confirm this?

See the "anyone seen one of these before" topic. It's not Itaru, it's the parent company

ouch thats terrible! i really hope that caparison stays alive, just for that i would buy one of their uber expensive guitars!

maybe caparison could go independent, provided they become a built to order kind of company.

I talked to Itaru. I can't repeat the news here, but Caparison Guitars is NOT DEAD. There is indeed some serious "business restructuring" going on, but it's not the end. :D Things will be different, but There will be a rebirth...
