Caparison discontinued the Horus in 2012 but now in 2016 it’s back as the Caparison Horus FX-AM – a stripped-back, lightweight, 27-fret, shred machine made in Japan with premium hardware…

With its unusual Light Ash and Maple composite body the Horus FX-AM, when played clean, gives you a deliciously sweet and sublime tone that chimes with a bright shimmering high note and a focused and sustained low end. Turn up the gain however and you have in your hands an uncompromising rock monster! The custom Caparison pickups help to define and intensify every note, enhancing the already extraordinary sonic qualities of this remarkable guitar.

The Hipshot Fixed Bridge has solid steel saddles with a crisp string relief edge, eliminating any dull tones, maximising string vibration and will stay solid no matter how hard you thrash. The beautiful simplicity of the design perfectly complimenting the svelte and alluring lines of this guitar.

The striking plain ebony fingerboard further enhances the sharp aesthetics of the Horus FX-AM and the luminous side fret marker dots are a cool and practical addition.
