Caparison Guitars Announces the Apple Horn 8 EF

Caparison Guitars Announces the Apple Horn 8 EF

A collaboration with Freak Kitchen's Mattias IA Eklundh.

Japan (January 3, 2018) -- New for 2018, the 8-string Caparison Apple Horn 8 EF has been updated with an ebony fretboard and twin titanium neck support rods.

The Caparison Apple Horn 8 EF is, in our humble opinion, the pinnacle of extreme guitar design. The walnut and mahogany 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 5-piece maple/walnut neck offers up 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. 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.


“Every time I pick up the Caparison Apple Horn 8 I am utterly floored and flabbergasted by its playability and enormously rich tone. It’s like a chamber orchestra in one instrument! 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

The Caparison Apple Horn 8 EF is available to order, MAP of US$ 5,599.
