I have been playing the Caparison Orbit FX live exclusively for approximately 5 years with “Queensryche”. I am very happy to be carrying these guitars NEW at my shop! Please contact me with any questions or to schedule an appointment to try out any of our Caparisons or other guitars at our showroom in downtown Seattle WA,

Scorching tones and a full 5-octave stretch (and then some) await you in the Caparison Orbit FX. From stem to stern, this aggressive 6-string is built for balance, speed, and precision. The timeless neck-through design sees a major upgrade in the form of Caparison’s 5-piece maple and walnut neck, whose seamless transition from headstock to body, along with a great-playing compound-radius ebony fingerboard, offers unbridled sustain and unbelievable fret-hand comfort. The Orbit FX’s premium string-through mahogany body loaded with tonally distinct Caparison humbuckers (PH-R bridge, offset SH-27F neck) equip this axe for classic rock to modern progressive metal. Together, a black TUSQ nut and Gotoh fixed bridge deliver unflappable tuning precision. Signature clock fingerboard inlays and devil’s-tail headstock add an extra dose of those coveted Caparison visuals.
Caparison contemporizes the iconic asymmetrical offset “V” in their Orbit FX electric guitar. Modern-day features include a 27-fret, compound-radius ebony fingerboard, a rock-solid 5-piece hardwood neck with a fast oil finish, and an extremely balanced body design. Take it from guitarists at Sweetwater: If you’re a fan of this classic design, you’re definitely going to want to get your hands on the Orbit FX.
Playing the Orbit FX, your hands won’t know where the neck ends and the body begins. This is thanks to a seamless neck-through design and graduated oil and gloss finishes which converge somewhere around the 15th fret. The result is an unbelievable playing experience all the way up to the 27th fret and a cosmetic treat every time you pick up the guitar.
Players who want the bare minimum standing in the way of great tone will delight in the Orbit FX’s streamlined tonal armament. The lightning-fast Switchcraft 3-way toggle unlocks hard-edged classic crunchy rhythms to laser-focused leads at a moment’s notice. Pickups are wired in parallel at position 2 for maximum output to drive your amp input.
