Thx Carl. That’s great news. Funny thing is first it was on the specs but they’re not available. Now they’re available but it’s not on the spec

Looking to purchase one within this two weeks. Thx.

Carl N.

Anytime!  Hope you enjoy it when you get it!

V Y.

Carl, one more question. I notice several places online selling the guitar with different SD pickups - SH2 & TB14 instead of what’s listed here Jazz & Custom 5. Why is that?

Carl N.

Hello again, those are Seymour Duncan's pickup model numbers for the Jazz and Custom 5 pickup

I really like this guitar esp. the head design. It looks more versatile and that it can be use for other genres other than Metal. Anyhow, I thought I just read recently on some reviews and saw on some retail stores that they have Push/Pull feature on the knobs on this exact model but when I check it here, it doesn't look like it. So I just want to confirm with you this day of October 2019, is there the P/P feature? Thanks.

Carl N.

Hey V, this will have a push pull, looks like it was just missing on our specs.  While some of our instruments may look menacing they can be used for any genre of music.

No, there are no problems with equipment. The problem is that the ESP Horizon's necks are too thick. It can be seen that they were not designed by guitarists.

Todd B. ESP

Hi Vitaliy, Thanks for your comments. Sorry to hear that. Our guitars were definitely designed by guitarists, but yes these models do not have the thinnest necks available on the market.

Vitaliy S.

Thanks for the answer! As a result, I sold this guitar, because it has a very thick neck and it is impossible to play fast. Never again will I buy ESP Horizon.

Vitaliy S.

P.S. And the edging on the edge of the neck is not. And the shape of the guitar head is just awful and uncomfortable changing strings.

Todd B. ESP

Hey Vitaliy, Sorry to hear that you didn't like this guitar. We appreciate your honest feedback and hope that you are able to find another one of our models that you can play comfortably.

Javier P.

sorry, uncomfortable to shred? Maybe there is a problem with technics. I own one of this and it is at least as fast than my jem fp2 or my universe...

Todd B. ESP

Hey Javier, thanks for your comments. Glad you are able to shred on this instrument!!

Vitaliy S.

Here in the description: "Vol / Tone / Toggle Switch". And my guitar is gone!

Vitaliy S.

Sorry, I meant push-pull for split coiltab.
