The Horus-M3 features our Mahogany-Maple-Mahogany composite body construction along with a bound neck and headstock. A choice of Maple or Ebony can be specified for the fingerboard material.
The Caparison Horus was originally introduced in 1995 and was developed in collaboration with the Japanese guitarist, Chacha Maru. The Horus is unique in design, featuring 27 frets but with a standard scale length, thus removing the need for the player to adjust their technique. To ensure the higher frets are accessible the Horus features a compact body design and deep cutaway. The Sponge finish is applied by hand so each production model is visually unique.
About M3 Construction
The M3 construction consists of a central Maple section sandwiched between two Mahogany sides with the Maple neck bolted directly to the Maple section. The result is a balanced sound with rich sustain.
The Caparison Horus-M3 features Caparison's own design SH-27F and PH-R pickups* controlled by a simple 3-Way selector switch and single master volume control configuration.
For the guitarist who requires greater control and a wide range of tonal possibilities the Horus-M3 can be specified to include the versatile ‘Option Control’ modification. For further information please click here.
