Caparison Guitars

Description

Featuring the M3 construction, this guitar features a less traditional pickup configuration that consists of a full-sized Caparison humbucker in the bridge, but then a single coil pickup and a compact humbucker side by side and both in the neck position, taking up the same space as one traditional sized humbucker. This unconventional set up allows the player to access a wide palette of unusual, but very usable tones via its 5-way blade selector switch.

A complete package of tried and tested features, elegant design and a fresh yet supremely functional approach, the Dellinger Prominence is destined to become a classic in its own right. Includes hardshell case.

The M3 composite tonewood body construction
The M3 composite tonewood body construction consists of a central Maple section sandwiched between two Mahogany sides with the neck bolted directly to the Maple section. The result is a balanced sound with focused low frequencies and rich sustain.
