Caparison Guitars Announces the Courtney Cox Signature Horus-M3 CC

The guitar features a 5-piece maple-and-walnut neck, Schaller S-FRT II tremolo, and pink sapphire finish.

Japan (April 2, 2018) -- “Every artist searches for the instruments that bring out the best in them. An instrument that transforms their creations into life. As a guitarist, I have searched for and have found an instrument that brings out the best in my passion for music. That guitar is the Caparison Horus-M3 CC. From its full in your face tone that cuts through any stage to its fast five piece neck, I am confident in saying that this hand crafted masterpiece is the best guitar I have ever played hands down. It's an honor to be a part of the Caparison family, a relationship I will hold dear throughout my career as an artist.” Courtney Cox

The Courtney Cox Signature Horus-M3 CC is based on the legendary Caparison Horus-M3 with some subtle but, effective modifications and built to shred! Featuring a luxurious 5-piece maple and walnut neck, which has been strengthened in order to deepen the neck joint heel cut giving superb access to the higher frets.

The robust Schaller S-FRT II floating tremolo has been modified with an Original Floyd Rose “Fat” Brass Block along with heavy duty noiseless springs to add mass and sustain, while increasing warmth and clarity simultaneously with a vintage sound and feel. The bridge has also been modified with Original Floyd Rose Titanium string lock insert blocks and Stainless Steel saddle mounting screws for ultimate durability and tonal response.

Finished in “Pink Sapphire” fluorescent pink, signature Caparison sponge finish, which is a uniquely hand painted technique making each guitar a completely unique example.

The Horus-M3 CC comes complete with a combination of a Caparison SH-27F pickup in the neck position, and a Caparison PH-bc in the bridge position. Offering a full and accurate sound, with nice clean, clear, crisp highs. Full and thick low tones. Able to handle big chords and still be clear enough to hear every note.

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
