CAPARISON BACK! Official from Itaru!

Please be informed that Caparison Guitars finished all activity in May, 2011 due to the bankruptcy of Kyowa Shokai Co., Ltd. who was then owner of the Caparison brand.

On behalf of Kyowa, I, Itaru Kanno would like to express my most sincere apologies to all of our customers and artists who had difficulties as a result.

From this unhappy event, the guitar manufacturer, the companies concerned and I (designer) have been striving for a fresh start for Caparison Guitars.

At this time, we are pleased to announce the takeover of Caparison by the Caparison Guitar Company Ltd. Caparison Guitars is reborn and makes a fresh start with immediate effect.

May be a good time to tell the new ownership that custom shop access is wanted.

Don't hold your breath on that happening. There are a few new models and some spec changes that people should enjoy, but the production is such that custom shop access just isn't a reality.

That is one thing Caparison really needs to understand. Open custom shop is a necessity.

I don't know when they'll release it to the public. They're 2012 models, so might be a while
