MEGA MUSIC in Denmark was the first to bring Caparison Guitars to Europe in 2005. Are they out of business or not ?? Sadly, they have not cared to inform me about the situation at all, and all my emails to them remain unanswered for 6 months now.. very strange..
The GOOD NEWS is that Mega Music still has about 20 Caparison guitars in stock

My information from Japan was that Kyowa had been placed in a trading halt. What they do to restructure out of it who knows. I imagine the number crunchers are still going over everything.
Steen has stuck by this brand for a long time and must be credited with many of the European players using them. I'm saddened but not surprised he's not been kept in the loop as to what has been happening by the company.
From my perspective, Caparison as a maker can't stay competitive as long as it's outsourcing to Iida on such a small level. It's very different to Ibanez tapping Fujigen to make their guitars.
