Guitars in the LTD 1000 Series are designed to offer the tone, feel, looks, and quality that working professional musicians need in an instrument. The LTD Deluxe H3-1000FR has the bold angular curves of the ESP Horizon-3, with an extended and beveled upper horn and a shortened lower horn that offers excellent high-fret accessibility. This guitar offers set-thru construction at 25.5” scale, pairing a mahogany body with flamed-maple top to a three-piece maple neck with Macassar ebony fingerboard. The H3-1000FR has a pair of high-output, direct-mount Seymour Duncan Sentient (neck) and Pegasus (bridge) passive pickups, splittable by a push-pull control. These pickups offer a wide dynamic range and excellent articulation, along with the aggressive responsiveness you want for today’s music. It also includes a Floyd Rose 1000SE bridge that features stainless steel screws, and Grover tuners. Available in See Thru Black Sunburst finish.

This guitar is highly underrated and sadly under appreciated I feel….I love the Eclipses and of course my Viper 407, but this guitar is literally the perfect guitar in every way…it’s comfortable, shreddy as hell, and in every way one of the most gorgeous guitars to both see and hear. The pickups are perfect for metal and with the push pull you have a myriad of tones with sparkling cleans. And despite the stigma of Floyd Rose licensed trem this bad boy stays in tune better than most of my other guitars with fixed bridges! It’s light as hell so easy on stage and the wood grain and the beauty of the appointments including the ESP logo on the headstock will make your head spin.  No complaints other than I wish it had a gig bag but hell, that’s a non issue cause I have other ones lying around. Well played ESP! 


This guitar is hands down the best body shape I have ever played. Less bulky, lighter, and better looking than the other horizons (or strat type). Feels a lot like a PRS but even better IMO. I am just so disappointed with the lack of options here. Add some EMG pickups options and different colors with satin/matte finish options as well.


the white and gold one has EMG's 57-66TW

Those Pegasus and sentient pickups are fantastic. They blow the EMG’s completely away. I own them and have the set in one of my guitars. They sound way better than EMG’s.

This guitar with a satin neck would be great

Hi, I bought this guitar and am very satisfied! Hey ESP, would you please produce this guitar also with different colors (I would love to have also a blueish or crimson reddish one e.g.)? Secondly, please work more on sharp edges of the the frets.Cause, I have an issue with them, but ok, not so tragic. However, please optimize their edges. Thank you!

Release this in the turquoise black color. Also, why is the Reindeer Blue one the only one with pickup rings? But yea, release this one in the black turquoise burst and I’ll put in my own EMGs.
