NAMM 2018: Caparison Reveals The New Horus-M3B Custom Line
Caparison has revealed the new Horus-M3B Custom Line, but can it live up to the claims of being a “true temple of sound”? Here’s Caparison with the full details…
When you look at the Horus-M3B Custom Line, it’s easy to see why the codename given to it during its inception was “Super Horus”.
At the centre of this “Super Horus” is its beautiful M3B composite tone wood body structure, making it a true temple of sound. Its 20mm thick, hand selected, master grade flame maple top sits above a gorgeous 3-piece back comprised of a maple centre piece sandwiched between two mahogany sides. The Horus-M3B Custom Line is finished in a transparent “Sun Burst” or “Moon Burst” gloss with natural reveal body binding and matching headstock.
Made of a luxurious 5-piece maple and walnut, its neck was strengthened in order to deepen the heel cut of the neck joint and allow a 1.0mm reduction in neck thickness, while taking great care in matching the standard of playability to the quality of its first-class build.
A new Caparison PH-bc bridge pickup, based on the popular PH-R, was developed to compliment the body, employing a truly harmonious structure that gives the Horus-M3B CL both an aesthetic beauty and the player’s best interests at its heart. An example of its functionality is the user-friendly control system that focuses on elevating it’s playing experience. Adapting a Push-Push switch and Coil Splitting Function, all you have to do is tap the volume knob lightly to activate a coil split mode.
