NAMM 2015 – CAPARISON Brocken 8 String – With Demo

Caparison Guitars is a Japanese guitar company that makes some of the very sexiest guitars around. Their signature “devil’s tail” headstock and fast necks (some of which sport 27 frets) make for some very metal axes.


The new Caparison Brocken follows the Apple Horn 8 as the second 8 string in the Caparison line. The Brocken features a much more simplistic design (the Apple Horn 8 has True Temperament frets and a tremolo) with a Hipshot hardtail bridge and regular ol’ grandpa straight across frets. The body is half walnut/half mahogany, which must make for a heavy guitar in more ways than one.

Bonus: Ghost Ship Octavius guitarist Matthew Wicklund demonstrates the guitar!

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013. I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
