It was 1989 when Page Hamilton, guitarist and vocalist for an up-and-coming alternative metal band called Helmet, visited a somewhat obscure guitar maker called ESP, when we were based in New York City on 48th Street. Purposefully going against the then-prevailing punk rock vibe, he chose a fuchsia-colored guitar with a Floyd and a pointy reverse headstock. Almost 30 years later, Page's ESP Horizon remains his #1 guitar, and like any instrument that's been put through its paces over a long time frame, Page's Horizon has plenty of stories.

"Classic Customs" is a video series where we get into the details of some of the most well-known and beloved instruments used by ESP's family of artists. More "Classic Customs" episodes coming soon!

I have one of these and its amazing! All the same except mine doesn't have the reverse hs.(<-------  its in my profile thumbnail) I wish ESP could give me an actual production date on it but they never got back to me on either of my ESP's.
