Formerly called “ESP Standard”, all ESP E-II instruments are created at our ESP factory in Tokyo, Japan, and are designed for professional players who accept no compromises in tone, feel, or reliability for their guitars and basses. The ESP E-II Horizon FR-7 is a 7-string guitar equipped with an original Floyd Rose tremolo, and offers a brilliant quilted maple top with a Black Turquoise Burst finish with white binding on its body, neck, and headstock. Beyond its great looks, the E-II Horizon FR-7 is an amazing instrument that features a mahogany body with set-thru construction for its three-piece maple neck. It offers an ebony fingerboard with 24 extra-jumbo frets, and high-quality components including a Schaller straplock, Gotoh locking tuners, and a set of EMG 66-7H (neck) and EMG 57-7H (bridge) active pickups mounted directly to the guitar’s body.

Hello, got this dream guitar as a nice addition to my twin Schecters Hellraiser Hybrid C-7 FR, which is basically almost the same guitar. But I prefer heavier gage strings, so I would like to replace them with Elixir Nanoweb 10, 13, 17, 26, 36, 46, 56 set. Will I need to add another spring or two in the back?

I did the same with my Schecters and it worked marvelously, but I did have to add a spring or two (can't remember). Would this guitar too be ok with that?

Also in your opinion, which 7th string gage would fit better with the rest of this string set, 56 or 59?

What a beautiful instrument!  I totally agree with the other comments (4?) below that a six stringer would be a worthy addition to your line.  I for one have no desire to play 7...but a 6 like this?  Chalk up another future sale.  Stainless steel frets would also be a smart change as Nickel causes dermatitis for one out of five people...but i’m good with just the addition of a six!

thanks for the insight!


BEGGING you PLEASE, make this in a 6 string with the reversed headstock (I'd even settle for the headstock as is).  Your finest guitar would be commercially accessible to the vast majority of us that don't have enough digits for a 7 string, or enough digits ($$$,$$$) for a custom, or are too old to be taught new tricks.  Otherwise, I'm going to feel very bad about buying any other ESP guitar.  Just sayin'...

Thank you for the insight!

Best looking guitar on the entire site, wish it was 6 string with non-reverse headstock, if it were, I'd buy 4, one for each alternate tuning. I just bought 2 Ibanez models like it, but I like the ESP neck profile and string spacing WAY better

cool, thanks for sharing

I purchased this guitar 6 months ago and it is awesome. The specs say the string gauges are 9,11,16,24,32,42 and 56. This kit doesn’t exist from Elixir. The strings that came on the guitar are 9,11,16,26,36,46 and 56. This kit doesn’t exist either. I put the .009-.052 on it without knowing this and the trem is way leaned back. That’s when I measured the strings that came on it. Could there have been a manufacturing error? This in an open box from Sam Ash but they claim it was never even played let alone the strings gauge altered. But who knows?

This should come equipped with the strings listed in our specifications though it is possible these could have been changed before it reached you.  If you need any further assistance you can reach our customer service team at customerservice@espguitars.com
