« Evolution of the Applehorn »

Publié le 04/06/11 à 14:22
The Apple Horn has been around in the Caparison lineup for quite awhile, and this new Jazz model is pushing guitar innovation to a different level. Instead of the standard mahogany body, this has a half mahogany/half walnut body. Instead of the normal Schaller floyd, this has a fixed bridge. Aside from that, it's pretty much the same as the rest of the Apple Horn models. The only other major thing worth noting is the new inlay.

UTILIZATION

Caparison did a really innovative thing with this. Most people have a paper thin top to change the tone. Caparison decided to use a huge slab of walnut to put on top of mahogany, and what you get is a mixture of the best of both worlds. The mahogany portion helps make this guitar sound huge, and the walnut portion gives it some upper midrange and bite. The guitar sounds huge, but it also sounds tight -- something a lot of guitars can't seem to achieve. The fixed bridge also aids in tuning stability and overall tone compared to a floyd.

SOUNDS

The sound of this guitar is pretty phenomenal. I really think the unique body construction and fixed bridge help aid in this guitar's massive tone. While I'm not normally a fan of fixed bridges, the bridge Caparison use, albeit a bit ugly, feels nice in your hands. It doesn't cut you up like some of the vintage bridges with the saddle adjustment allen head screws.

OVERALL OPINION

If you're looking for a hard tail Horus, this is pretty much the only model you can get. That said, it shouldn't be much of an issue as this guitar is an amazing guitar. It's massive sounding, yet it sounds very tight in the low end. It never gets too out of hand in one frequency, and it just resonates like crazy thanks to the wood construction, finish and hard tail bridge.
