27 frets, 8 strings, true temperment system, DiMarzio pickups and a Floyd Rose locking tremolo and nut add up to a shredder's dream.
The Caparison Apple Horn 8 is, in our humble opinion, the pinnacle of extreme guitar design. The Walnut and Mahogany tone wood composite body helps to maintain that essential note definition needed when dealing with avant-garde guitar tunings. The highs remain crystal clear with a distinctive bell like midrange and the low notes are tight yet thunderous.
The fast and comfortable hand finished, 5 piece Maple/Walnut neck moulds comfortably into your hand making extended playing a breeze and fatigue free. Add to this the 27 fret True Temperament system on a select Ebony fingerboard and the exacting harmonics that this guitar produces sing out in perfect intonation.
“I have played the Caparison Apple Horn 8 for a bunch of months by now. Every time I pick it up I am utterly floored and flabbergasted by its playability and enormously rich tone. It’s like a chamber orchestra in one instrument!
“I own and have tried numerous eight string guitars but, never understood the full potential of the instrument until I had “The Beast” in my lap (as my fellow Caparison friends like to call it). The usual thing out there nowadays, it seems, is to get an eight string, turn up the distortion, do a little “djent-djent-djent” on the two lowest strings and make a pseudo evil face to go with it. The Apple Horn 8 has so, so much more to offer. You can play anything. The guitar is so well balanced, both in look and feel.
“I take a humble, sincere Viking bow to my dear buddies at Caparison for making this happen. This is not just another guitar. It will take me a few years to fully understand the nature and the astonishing wide spectrum of the Apple Horn 8. I am looking forward to the ride.” Mattias “IA” Eklundh
