with case

The ESP E-II Horizon FR is a guitar designed for high-level performing, for serious players who can't accept compromises in their instrument's ability to showcase their talent. Built in Japan, it offers set-thru construction for fast and smooth access to the highest frets, pairing a mahogany body to a 3-piece maple neck with ebony fingerboard and 24 extra-jumbo frets, and a quilted maple top in Black natural Burst finish. You'll appreciate the feel of fine, detailed workmanship each time you pick up the E-II Horizon FR, which includes high-end components like a Floyd Rose Original bridge, Dunlop Straploks, and Gotoh locking tuners. This guitar includes a Seymour Duncan Sentient pickup in the neck position for wide dynamic range and excellent articulation, and an aggressive Seymour Duncan Pegasus in the bridge that's highly responsive and harmonically rich, with push-pull coil splitting. Includes ESP hardshell case.

I would like to see this in Black Turquoise Burst.

Carl N.

thanks for your suggestion 

Brandon S.

Best suggestion, also, bound neck would look killer with the turquoise black burst

I found these pickups are awful. We seem to be in a really bad phase of pickup popularity for metal. How long will this last? Absolute poop.

Todd B. ESP

Hey Hekate, Thanks for your feedback. Many people seem to like these pickups but certainly there are a lot of other choices out there for sure.

Stuart A.

I would love this exact guitar in black natural burst in a 7 string version with an EMG 66-7/57-7 set. I know you do the FR7 model, I just love this colour and the headstock on this model. Would you ever release a model as I just stated? 

Carl N.

Hey Stuart, no plans at the moment but thanks for sharing.

Stuart A.

Thanks for the reply! Would it mean going through the custom shop? I can imagine that being a bit more expensive

Carl N.

Yes, any model you wish to have made could be made through our custom shop.  Though you could probably pick up three of these for the price of one custom.

I have wanted an e-ii since early 2018 and haven't had much help from two dealerships in town so I bought online. Originally I wanted a RDB one but a few deals fell through and then a BNB showed up at Reverb and I snatched it up. It just arrived last Sunday and WOW! It was everything I had imagined. This will be my main axe from now on for a long time to come. The BNB finish was absolutely stunning. The guitar plays and sound as good as it looks. Very pleased with it.

Carl N.

Hey V Y, thanks for sharing and glad you are enjoying it!
