The ESP Original series is the pinnacle of Japanese guitar design. Created in the same workshop as their custom orders, the Horizon has been hand-crafted for the very best in playing comfort and sound. Gorgeous exotic woods, elite hardware and impeccable construction from ESP’s master luthiers.
Made of a solid mahogany body and a flawless quilted maple top, the Horizon-II is a true spectacle of a guitar - but it doesn’t stop there. Playability is always at the forefront of ESP’s design books.
The Horizon-II hosts a set-thru, thin ‘U’ neck paired with an ebony fingerboard; a winning combination found across the ESP catalogue. It’s a tried and tested formula guaranteeing ultimate playing comfort. Hardware choices include a Floyd Rose Original floating bridge for all your flutter needs with unwavering stability.
It’s all about roaring tone and singing leads with the Custom 5 bridge and Jazz neck pickup combo. The former is a gritty, medium output humbucker, characterised by its full fat tone and scooped mids. It’s right at home in crunchy territories, while providing a balanced performance at lower gain stages magnificently.
The Jazz is a much softer sounding alnico 5 pickup, with a glassy treble, tight bass and slightly scooped mids. This is your go-to pickup for soulful leads, even at high gain.
