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 flamed maple top, the Horizon 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 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 Gotoh locking tuners and TOM bridge for unwavering stability.
It’s all about fine tone and nuance with the ’59 Custom hybrid bridge and Jazz neck pickup combo. The former is a gritty, medium output humbucker, characterised by its focused upper midrange and tight bass response. It’s able to stray into modern metal territories, while performing at lower gain stages magnificently.
The Jazz is a much softer sounding alnico 5 pickup, with a glassy treble, full bass and slightly scooped mids. This is your go-to pickup for soulful leads, even at high gain.
