Would any Caparison owners be so kind...

Post by VVolverin3 » Fri Oct 07, 2011 3:30 pm

... as to open up their homes briefly for me to play one? :D


Okay so that's quite forward. But as simply as I can put it, the Caparison TAT frozen sky is quite possibly the most awesome guitar I have ever seen, and I (think I) really want one. But given that no one really deals with them in Aus anymore I would have to import it I guess, and I don't really want to spend that much money on a guitar having never even played it.

So the question is: would anyone near Melbourne (I live slightly south east of the city) who owns a Caparison (preferably a TAT, or something with a similar neck if possible?) be kind enough to meet up with me and let me play it for a bit? I don't really have much to offer in return. I've got an Ibanez JS1000 (Joe Satriani sig) or RG1527 (7 string prestige) or ENGL powerball head that someone could play with if they wanted?

And yes in case it isn't blatantly obvious I have just signed up to post this thread. I suppose that will make me fairly untrustworthy, but I've been posting under the same name on Melband and Ultimate-Guitar for a couple of years (and had some friendly dealings with people from Melband) so I'd like to think I'm reasonably trustworthy. :lol:

So uhh, yeah. That's it. Any questions, or suggestions for what I should do also appreciated.

Cheers, Pete. :lol:

I have an original one to sell if you decide you like it. A TAT II. Play a soloist and imagine a Horus neck on it? :D

But is it with the frozen sky finish? Sorry I'm really picky, but I want that finish. :oops:

And do you live near Melbourne? Can I come and try it out please? :lol:

Ah man, thanks for the tip. But guitar center don't really ship much to Australia. :P
Especially not guitars from what I've seen.

if you can get them at the right price, you are more than welcome to ship it here and I can forward it. Just if you need it. I am really well known on SS.org and have a ton of eBay feedback. Just an idea, I don't mind shipping it again for ya if you need it.

That's much appreciated mate, but in the past two days it's become painfully apparent that I have very little prospect of income (I had to turn down a new job cause of uni commitments) and I am soon to be in need of my own car (can't just borrow my Dad's forever :lol: ). So unfortunately I think I'll have to hold off on my Caparison dreams for a while. :(
