E-II HORIZON SUGIZO CTM

SEE THRU BLACK

$1,899.00 with case

Sugizo is one of Japan’s most respected musicians. For over 30 years, this multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer has remained an influential player in the world of many genres of music from metal to electronica to psychedelia and beyond. His new ESP E-II Signature Series guitar is the Horizon Sugizo CTM, based on a guitar he created with the ESP Custom Shop. Built at the ESP factory in Japan, the E-II Horizon Sugizo CTM offers the highly playable feel and sound that this musician demands from his instruments. Offering neck-thru body construction, it includes a mahogany body with quilted maple top in See thru Black finish. The uniquely power sonic voice of Sugizo’s guitar comes from a punchy Seymour Duncan SL59-1 “Little ’59 Humbucker” in the middle position, and a Seymour Duncan Distortion in the bridge position. This guitar also includes a Floyd Rose Original bridge, Gotoh tuners, and an ESP hardshell form-fitting case.

Dear ESP 

Glad to see you corrected the specs however you forgot the most important thing..

..this guitar comes with Vintage frets and not XJ frets! 

The Horizon Sugizo is sitting next to me right now and it's a stunning looking guitar!!

Mine has a super smooth neck. The look and feel of this guitar is amazing and it sounds absolutely awesome!!

I love this guitar, please just note that it does in fact comes with #23 Vintage frets..

..also why is this model not listed in the signature page? Sugizo is after all an ESP artist and this is one of his signature models

Hi Trashgreen, thanks for your comments. We'll get these specs right. This model comes from overseas and was added to our product line so it just fits in with our E-II products right now.

Received  this guitar yesterday. Looks and plays amazing! 

I just want to point out a slight error on the specs. It doesn’t include  strap locks or locking tuners. 

The fit and finish is perfect, really needs to be seen in person to be appreciated.

Todd B. ESP

Hey Andrew, Great to hear how much you love your new guitar. Thanks for pointing out these errors. We'll fix them on our site.

It's a beauty! Any chance we'll be getting more japanese arstist signature models in the future?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Richard, Thanks. Anything is possible but usually the Japanese artist models are only available in Asia.
