OVERVIEW

Ultimate comfort and legendary playability finely crafted in Japan.

With a forward-thinking, functional approach to design, Caparison’s Brocken FX-WM opened the guitar playing experience to a whole new world of possibilities and this is further realized with the 8 string model. Its streamlined, effective and deceivingly simple specification employs a long, slender neck scale, with 27 frets that increases the realm of tuning capabilities. The beautiful 5-piece maple/walnut neck, offers up a security for its extensive size. In addition, two titanium rods were built into the neck, eliminating any chance of warping and increasing the guitar’s strength, stability and performance.

To further enhance the Brocken FX-WM 8’s playability, it has the same shape and head design as an “Apple Horn 8” developed with Mattias “IA” Eklundh. This isn’t a diversion from the existing model by any means, just a design to fit the 8 string model. Brass saddles were selected for a Hip-Shot 8 string bridge, using brass for a clearer tone and a short saddle is attached to secure a movable range. A Gotoh lock tuner is fixed to the machine head to stabilize the tuning capabilities and the nut width is set to 49mm. It has a beautiful ebony fretboard and classic Caparison neck grip, so this behemoth has a remarkable balance in its tone and with along with its matt finish is a joy to witness and play.

The Brocken Body is a Walnut/Mahogany (“WM”) structure, Walnut on the top and Mahogany on the back. The Walnut top, gives the Brocken a wide tonal range, from the richest bass to the clearest treble, whilst the Mahogany back sustains and maintains the impressive clarity and definition this guitar delivers. As the neck increases, inevitably, so does the guitar’s weight – this is stabilized and perfectly balanced by setting the thickness of the Brocken 8’s beautiful body to 40mm.

The Brocken 8 FX-WM is equipped with the gorgeous tone of high output Caparison “DActorator8” humbucker pickups, defining and delivering the huge tonal range of this instrument. Consistently, Caparison offers amazing functionality to their masterful designs and The Brocken 8 is no exception. With a simple 5-way selector switch and control over the master volume (which has been relocated on this model to its backside), a huge range of sounds can be produced by combining pickups using the Schaller mega switch. Add perfect access to all 27 frets and Caparison’s impeccable playing comfort and witness how a spectacular extended range guitar is made. Includes hardshell case.
