Overview

The TAT Special FX “Metal Machine” was developed with Adam Dutkiewicz, based on the Caparison TAT Special. Featuring a beautifully unique body structure, the Caparison TAT curve top, is an asymmetrical 27-fret design with an arched body top, resulting in a more comfortable, complimentary playing experience beyond the 12th fret. The ingenious evolutionary construction continues with the use of Maple Top/Mahogany Back material for both sides, creating a sound that, due to the oiled-finish, luxury 5 piece Maple Walnut through-neck has lasting strength, stability and unquestionable quality. The TAT Special FX is also fitted with a fixed bridge and through body stringing for unparalleled sustain and clarity, with a tight focused, aggressive voice. 

The TAT Special FX “MM” comes with a no-nonsense single Fishman Fluence Killswitch Engage Signature pickup in the bridge position, with a single Push-Pull Volume control for Voice-1/Voice-2 switching. Voice 1 begins with the Fishman Modern recipe, but Joel & Adam prefer a tighter bass for more note definition and screaming midrange and harmonics. Voice 2 in the neck produces a crystal clean, fluid voice.
