Caparison Orbit 7-CZQ Cazqui Signature Features Unique Hardware & Fishman Fluence Pickups!
The Caparison Orbit 7-CZQ, Cazqui signature model is the product of over two years of development. Based on the classic Caparison Orbit model with a through-neck and unique curved top shape, a 7-string design was adapted to embody the various design ideals of the Japanese guitarist.
Caparison designed a unique pickguard with Cazqui, a gold mirrored pickguard, to compliment the white body and gold hardware, finished to reflect his aesthetic tastes. The maple fingerboard produces precise, articulate notes with good bite and a tight low end. Adorned with Black Clock inlays, black fingerboard and headstock binding, it makes the distinctive appearance stand out even further.
In order to ensure maximum tuning stability, which is required for Cazqui’s intense stage performances, the neck is strengthened by embedding twin titanium bars within the 5-piece Maple & Walnut through-neck structure. It is also fitted with a top-quality Schaller LockMeister 7-string Tremolo bridge, ensuring ultimate reliability.
The Orbit 7-CZQ comes loaded with a set of Fishman 7-String Modern Humbucker Alnico / Ceramic active pickups. Controlled with a Push-Pull volume pot, Switchcraft 3-way toggle pickup selector and a “Kill Switch”, which is indispensable for his playing style. Pulling up the volume pot switches to Fishman’s “Voice 2” sound, which emulates a passive tone. This guitar also features a Fishman USB rechargeable battery pack so there is no need to replace a battery. At Cazqui’s request, the Jack Plate is a flat type.
