The Caparison ‘Susanoh’ signature model was designed in conjunction with Japanese guitarist ‘Ace’ Shimizu who originally rose to fame in the legendary theatrical rock group Seikima-II and later went on to form a successful solo career with his own Rock/Jazz fusion project ‘Face to Ace’.
The Susanoh’s construction is based on the Angelus-ACE model but features a more fluid and radical body design, a Mahogany body with a deep Flame Maple arch top and three humbucking pickups with custom switching controls.
