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 [email protected] 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.

Johnny B.

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
