Looking to pick up an additional Horizon FRII and need some help regarding one I have my eye on.
It's a 2008 model in STBC and to my knowledge this colourway only came with black nickel hardware, the reson I'm asking is that this guitar has chrome volume/tone knobs and the seller states that it arrived that way and have not been changed/upgraded.
Where any produced in STBC with the chrome volume/tone knobs or is this likely to be a fake?
Thanks for your help,
Pretty sure the older Horizons were available with both chrome and black nickel on the same guitar, not sure if it was all Horizon models, only the FR or only the TOMs. You can probably thumb through the ESP Export catalogs on the Russian ESP Site to verify.
Maybe the paint/coating is just worn out. I have same "problem" with my ESP Horizon FRII STBC. It came with black nickel hardware but after years of use volume knob is so worn out it looks like plain chrome knob.
Sorry about bad grammar.
