The Apple Horn, I am very proud to say, is my own signature model. When I started playing, not in my wildest dreams could I imagine I actually would have a guitar named after me.

It is designed by my friend Itaru Kanno and manufactured by Kyowa Inc, Caparison Guitars in Japan.

There are seven official model and the nice guys and gals of Caparison have made me a number of great variations. Each different in wood, design and pick-ups.

The Apple Horn Orange


The Apple Horn Sand Stone


The Apple Horn Aurora

I use all of them live - either tuned to Dbsus4, Bbm13, C tuning, B6add9, down one half-step or regular tuning. Together with my Laneys that's all I need.
