The 60+ guitars, amps, pedals, basses, and accessories that stood out from the crowd and earned our coveted Premier Gear Award this year.
Caparison Horus-M3 CCCaparison builds high-end metal machines for Killswitch Engage and Mattias Eklundh, and now their artist roster includes Courtney Cox of the Iron Maidens. Her signature Horus-M3 CC has a maple body, mahogany wings, a Schaller floating tremolo and locking nut, Gotoh tuners, and a cutaway with access to the 27th fret. The CC’s Caparison pickups offer a refreshing change from the sound of active pickups so prominent in modern metal.
