– Condition: 9/10
– Fret wear: None
– Any wear of note: Extremely light swirling in clear coat throughout the body (Very standard wear for a used guitar. Can happen from simply being wiped/cleaned with a cloth). Only visible in certain light and very minor. Nothing that will really photograph. There’s one maybe inch or so long very light graze type ding just to the right of the tremolo. But it’s honestly not very noticeable or deep and is really only visible in certain light. We included pictures in more direct light so it’s more visible. In overall really incredible shape and very clean besides that! Very well maintained. The bridge pickup was switched out to a Seymour Duncan Black Winter trembucker, but the original Caparison pickup is included.
– Other notes: The folks at Caparison really know how to make a truly stunning and solid guitar with all right appointments to make it a true player. It feels and sounds amazing. Really comfortable neck and top notch components all around! The finish is Trans Spectrum Black, which is slightly metallic and also transparent. But it’s hard to really capture it in photos. The transparent aspect doesn’t show very much in person, only under certain lights and certain angles. We’ve included some more direct light pictures to hopefully show the transparent and metallic aspects of the finish. But it looks amazing in person. Includes original Reunion Blues Continental case, COA, original pickup, wrenches and owner’s manual. Weighs 7lb 8oz.
DELLINGER PROMINENCE EF
Just as Caparison Guitars has persisted to develop in our design philosophies and production processes, the Dellinger Prominence represents an evolution of the established Dellinger model, continually upgraded and enhanced.
A versatile yet unconventional approach, the Dellinger Prominence embodies the melding of functionality and unorthodox thinking with tried-and-true construction methods. But it doesn’t stop there.
The bolt-on neck is made up of a 5-piece Maple/Walnut construction, with silky-smooth playability with rock-solid strength and stability. This build, alongside the curve-top ‘M3’ body, generates an enhanced degree of resonance, adding sweet mid-to-high frequencies.
Furthermore, the unconventional pickup arrangement, combined with a push-pull coil splitting tone pot, opens up a new spectrum of tonality. By splitting the coils of both the neck and bridge humbuckers simultaneously, the Dellinger Prominence gives you the sound-scope of 9 different pickup configurations, some of which unique to this particular instrument.
The result is an instrument that challenges the perceived conventions of guitar construction, pushes the player’s creativity and fires inspiration. The possibilities that the Dellinger Prominence offers means that nothing stands in the way of you and your music.
