How do I buy this guitar? Your website doesn’t sell it and no dealers carry it.

Carl N.

if you have any questions you may reach out to our customer service team at or 


ESP Original instruments are exclusively made in the ESP Factory of Shibuya, Japan so you will certainly have to ask a licensed ESP retailer to import it for you. 


Hi, could this be ordered in a different colour and with EMGs? I heard the Original line can be semi-customized. 

Carl N.

Any ESP model can be ordered through the custom shop.  For a quote, see your local/preferred ESP dealer.

Could you tell me if the bridge pickup is a standard humbucker or a trembucker?


Thank you!

Carl N.

This would be a standard humbucker

Nicholas K.

Thanks, Carl!

I have an EPS USA Horizon-II which is a string-through and it's a trembucker even though it does not have a Floyd Rose. You need to make sure. The bridge pickup is a Seymour Duncan TB-5 (trembucker) and the neck was a Seymour Duncan SH1N. So this is not a string-through so it may be normal spacing but you should check to be 100% sure.

Nicholas K.

Thanks, William. Carl cleared it up for me.

I called my esp dealer and he says only the string thru custom is available with chrome hardware how can i order this exact model with chrome hardware or will i have to order as is and have it switched out ?

Carl N.

Perhaps try a different dealer.  Any ESP Original instrument can be special ordered with a hardware color change.

Johnny B.

Can you have silver hardware instead of black ?

Carl N.

Hey Johnny, you could special order this instrument with chrome hardware, yes.

Johnny B.

Cool thanks man
