The Caparison TAT series, featuring a through-neck design was one of the first Caparison series from the original 1995 line up. Production of this design ceased in 1997 however following overwhelming demand, 2006 saw its much-anticipated return. The re-introduced models feature new pickup control configurations and finishes.
The Caparison TAT series has a unique structure to take advantage of the through-neck design: Typically, most guitars, the neck is relatively parallel to the body angle. The TAT series features an arched body top increasing that angle. In addition, the neck has a conical 350-400mm radius with a flattened rear profile and the heel & body cutaways are smooth, beautifully contoured and shaped. This results in a more comfortable playing position particularly when playing beyond the 12th fret.
The Caparison TAT is fitted with two Caparison Design SH-N single size humbucking pickups*, one high-output PH-R humbucking pickup*, a 5-Way pickup selector switch and single volume control.
For the guitarist who requires greater control and a wide range of tonal possibilities the TAT can be specified to include the versatile ‘Option Control’ modification. For further information please click here.
For 2012, two new sponge colours are available, ‘SnowStorm’ and ‘BlackRose’. The TAT custom finish is applied by hand so each production model is visually unique.
