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.

Is the truss rod double action or single action?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Claus, Our truss rod is double action so it will adjust in 2 directions.

Claus L.

Are the frets Nikkel/Silver or stainless steel?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Claus, Yes they are nickel silver. That is what we use for everything unless noted otherwise.

I wish you guys had a larger variety of options for this model. Would buy one with pleasure if it featured an Evertune instead!

Thanks for the insight!

Just bought this guitar, my first new guitar this century! I love my old guitars a lot but I've been hankering after a 7 string for a while but a Benedetto is simply out of my price range so had been looking at solid body alternatives and this seemed about the best going. Well it looks beautiful, I mean REALLY beautiful and feels surprisingly comfortable in that it isn't too heavy in the body and is not head heavy which could be an issue with a 7 string. The sound is fine, in that it has pretty clear tones for an active pick-up design. The neck PU is the one I'll probably be using most as it sounded right within the first minute of playing. I'm still getting used to the Floyd Rose (very wobbly when compared to a 'Fender Plus/Hipshot' trem which I'm used to) so I see it as a slight challenge to master rather than a thing to change. I do get the 'Metal' thing that seems to be the main purpose for a lot of 7 string guitar but these days I'm foremost a Jazz player and YES, this guitar can certainly produce some lovely clean music. Well done, you fabulous ESP people.

Thanks for the kind words Gordon!  Glad you're enjoying it!

I am still in the Studio with this guitar. The Horizon FR-7 works very well and the Sound is amazing. :-)
