ESP E-II HORIZON FR in Black

Floyd Rose Tremolo, Seymour Duncan Pickups

Description

The Horizon E-II is a no-compromise, quality guitar built for effortless playing, bridging the gap between the extremely high-end premium range and the affordable ESP LTD models. The striking looks probably won't make it a vintage classic but the Horizon will last just as long as any thanks to exceptional woods and hardware.

Sound

ESP are famous for their high octane metal guitars but the Horizon can do so much more. Packed with its Seymour Duncan Jazz and Custom 5 pickups, the Horizon can deliver anything from metal with its crystal clear string clarity to clean blues or jazz for warm, smooth tones. The Custom 5 in the bridge has a super tight low-end with sharp attack and cut-off, perfect for staccato riffing or plucked notes. The Jazz in the neck is a lot fatter and contains a lot more woody warmth, great for clean passages or when combined with chorus, reverb or other modulation effects in your signal.  

Body and hardware

The Horizon has a Mahogany body with a large cutaway for comfort and a super thin Maple neck designed with fast playing in mind. The 305mm Ebony fretboard is silky smooth, especially when fitted with ESP's well-crafted 22 extra jumbo frets. This model sports a flamed maple top made of high-grade wood in a lovely gloss. The only 50/50 is the glossy neck as some players do prefer a satin finish, but this mostly comes down to preference, and the Ebony fretboard is so quick to play it becomes a non-issue when considering playing speed. 

Gotoh locking tuners adorn the headstock and a Floyd Rose system is fitted at the bridge, and make life so much easier for any player. Enjoy the biggest of dive bombs or small flutters to great effect when using the Floyd Rose Original bridge, packed with decades of design experience for the most extreme of playing styles. Meanwhile, the volume knob is extremely close to the bridge which makes those super smooth volume swells a realistic possibility.
