The Angelus7-M3B was born from a desire to retain the Angelus versatility and add a seventh string for an extended range experience unlike any other. Combining the comfort and meaty tones of a slightly shorter scale length with finely adjusted perceived tension and carefully tuned tone with impeccable articulation and no loss of definition to the low end - truly a 7-string capable of doing it all with equal ease and style! The sustain given by the M3 body structure is accented by the the Maple arched top which adds a crispness to the high end. It's fitted with original Caparison "PH-7" Pickups, to give the guitar a powerful and focused sound. The through body stringing / Tailpiece construction has been carefully positioned to maximise the tension and stability of the guitar. The M3B composite tonewood body construction. The Caparison M3B construction consists of a central Maple section sandwiched between two Mahogany sides with a two piece Maple top. This composite tonewood construction results in a slight increase in weight over our traditional Angelus body. To compensate the overall body depth has been reduced by 3mm. The M3B body construction is designed to give maximum sustain. The Schaller Model M, 5 way MegaSwitch gives the guitar a versatile array of pickup switching options.
