When researching a new body construction for the evolution of the Caparison Angelus-HGS (Heavy Gauge Strings) our main goal was to add a rich sustain characteristic to the low tone and heavy sound of the existing model. After experimenting with different concepts we determined that ‘M3B Construction’ was the answer. Unlike the Angelus-HGS the bridge and bridge pickup position has not been modified specifically for heavy gauge string use / alternative tuning. Despite this, the Angelus-M3B can still accommodate heavy gauge strings / alternative tuning, making it more accessible for the versatile player.
For the guitarist who requires greater control and a wide range of tonal possibilities the Angelus-M3B can be specified to include the versatile ‘Option Control’ modification.
