Mattias “IA” Eklundh's signature model sports a 27" scale length and is loaded with a Floyd Rose trem.

United Kingdom (September 2, 2014) -- With a walnut and mahogany composite tone wood body, the Apple Horn 8 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, five-piece maple/walnut neck molds comfortably into your hand making extended playing a breeze and fatigue free. Add to this the 27-fret True Temperament system on a 27" scale length rosewood fretboard and the exacting harmonics that this guitar produces sing out in perfect intonation.

The calculated lunacy is completed with an 8-string Floyd Rose Original tremolo system for maximum sonic exploration; an articulate and dynamic DiMarzio D Activator 8 pickup in the bridge and a sweet PAF 8 in the neck—each selected by a single push/push volume pot.

Caparison set out to make the ultimate 8-string guitar, eminently playable, sonically astute and simply beautiful. The Apple Horn 8 represents the epitome of creative guitar building and genuinely stands apart from other instruments of its ilk.

Hand made in Japan, the Caparison Apple Horn 8, is available to order now. And priced as follows; USA: MAP $5,299 USD (excluding tax), Europe: €5,019 Euros (inc. VAT), UK: £3,989 (inc. VAT).

We’re almost finished with the aging process on our project guitar. Let’s work on the fretboard, nut, and truss rod cover, and prepare the headstock for the last hurrah.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. This month we’ll continue with our relic’ing project, taking a closer look at the front side of the neck and treating the fretboard and the headstock. We’ll work on the front side of the headstock in the next part, but first we must prepare it.
