    I will not go on the features that are already well covered in other reviews (ash body, neck-through 24 frets, floyd rose original ...). Mine is equipped with passive pickups (Duncan SH1 Seymours & TB4)

    The performance of the agreement is perfect and flawless violin.
    Access to acute is easy but do not have too big fingers box in the 24th, there is not much room with jumbo frets.
    Only downside: The volume knob is placed too close to the play area, advantageous when playing knob (violin) but quite annoying nag rhythm mode, the volume is lowered unintentionally, it took me a few months to get used to.

    SOUNDS

    This is a versatile guitar, the sound palette ranges from light to heavy saturation and each time with a grain gives it interesting personality. To summarize, you can play the blues on the neck pickup split, and you spend the hard rock on the bridge pickup.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Accustomed to vintage guitars (Telecaster, Les Paul) I sought one superstrate with a floyd to develop my game and I was not disappointed.
    It's been 3 years since I used this guitar, the price / quality ratio is very good. I play regularly (every day) and I've never had any problems with.

    SOUNDS

    This axe features two hum pups that sounds very good and a high gain amplifier setting. These guitars aren't full of tone like you would find in a Fender Stratocaster or a Gibson Les Paul guitar. However it's going to be a nice rich tone as can be very suitable for most styles of music. This guitar cleans up pretty well and overall has a nice balance and feel for any type of music. The neck is very comfortable a play on and the action on the frets is very good too. Whatever amplifier you use with this guitar it's good to sound pretty good but it really comes to life with a nice high again amplifier.


    OVERALL OPINION

    You can find these guitars new for right at around $1999 which is a price point that is somewhere in the middle of a standard guitar and a custom shop guitar. It is a happy medium point for some consumers. Overall this is a cool guitar but if I would to spend this kind of money I would go with a Custom Shop Charvel. You can spend a few extra hundred bucks and get a CS and it will have a better neck and tone that matches better with more styles of music.

    I am the happy owner of an esp horizon fr. It was manufactured in Japan. There are 24 frets and the hoop is correct. The configuration is two double duncan original sounding great. Vibrato is a floyd that works very well but I preferred to place two screws in the flat INSET floyd inserts type Allen keys. Indeed, when screwed or unscrewed with flat head screws, it tends to remove the paint that is on the screws and it's not the most beautiful effect with black hardware. Chromium are emerging of the screw. Having said that mine was very well regulated so I did not have to touch it. If you ever touch it and the chrome of the screw appears you can put some nail polish chrome black mask.

Chromium are emerging of the screw. Having said that mine was very well regulated so I did not have to touch it. If you ever touch it and the chrome of the screw appears you can put some nail polish chrome black mask.
    As for the tone volume settings, micro switch is happiness for those who like simplicity and I do. A 3-position selector gibson type under the two potentiometers. 1 for volume, one for tone, and it's all practice!
    The neck is perfect, flat ebony fingerboard. open strings mound, it does not frieze and the strings are rather close to the handle.

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is very nice, it is flat, the strings are very close, it does not frieze is a autauroute!
    Access to acute is very easy.
    The ergonomics are good. The guitar is very light, the body is ash. In terms of form, it is a body type stratabound and was not done much better since. Except of course the shape of the head that is clearly oriented metal.
    This gives a good sound easy but it can seem a might steep, probably because of the ash body. The wood is strong, clean-sounding. but push push splitter allows the microphones and you get to have a sound very similar to alder stratocasterien. So it is very clearly seen: at the same time you can have sounds very dry and sounds more muffled thanks to the push push. This acute for micro
    As for the micro serious is not bad at all between the fender and gibson bass sound without a sound perfectly still Gibsonian. It's still more metal oriented but it's still very versatile and very good quality.

    SOUNDS

    This guitar is perfect for rock and metal styles. Now c'esty as any. You can do anything with. But as soon as it comes in styles really blues or jazz, you will need another instrument of preference, it will be neither better nor worse, but more suitable. We do not rockabilly with a PRS and a mesa boogie, though, john 5 telecaster does it with a laney and in a style all its own. All that to say that the guitar will not change what you do on the handle but will be more or less well adapted to the style.
    I play on my esp marshall tsl 100 head in saturated and clean sounds I get out of a twin. it works well in both cases. After all depends if you play with or without effects, it can change many things.
    I get distorted sounds between the lens and fat with a carl martin plexitone that stands out the high notes, that guitar is already good by itself. You can hear everything, not just the infra serious!
    I like the saturated tones and clear and I do not hate much. They all have their reasons to exist. Be sought after such sounds as a function of his style and the style in which we play.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The characteristic I like most about this guitar is the neck joint body with set neck, which témoingne a certain rigor in the assembly and that does not like to cheat on a Bolt by putting cardboard shims to raise the handle and then press against the strings. Clearly, with a set neck, if it does not work, obviously, we feel it right away, or of a will of consteur to pay attention to the joint body run. Once it's glued, we do not take off more. Only a luthier can do it!
    I also like the varnish because fashion is currently no varnish on guitars and I think it's pity and unfounded. I really like the black varnish on the handle.
    I tried other models before buying and what pleased me most is the combination of various elements: true floyd, ash, simple settings (volume, push push, key), key Ebony, the neck playability, comfort and look. I find these elements together in a very few brands.
    I would definitely do it again this election.

A micro mange, it distinguishes the incredibly diffntes existing sound ... see.

    SOUNDS

    You can play almost anything with varying degrees of effectiveness.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a year and what I like most about this guitar is the simplicity and its ffective utilisation.Sans frills, in her black dress, she swallows all she can recracher.En Regarding the report qualitprix for the guitar itself, nothing to say, but strap-locks instead of a simple tie belt t would be welcome, given the price in case of accident it hurts the heart (especially in portfolio) and also some foam under the cls allen floyd, like some guitar, when you do a great cleaning, rests directly on the floyd bois.Se are d tails but considering the price 'must not let go.

    Only regret:
    It would really MRIT a simple micro in the middle
    (Espace. ..? And as the micro splittent ...)

    UTILIZATION

    This guitar is amazing!
    Premire surprise in the test:
    the handle. It is highly accessible, super smooth (the two cots, as the key varnished
    amazing). CHAC is the acute incroyabe (they could have added freight without any problem,
    24 c but not sufficient? ,-P). I play by placing it lower than my old guitar
    without losing speed!

    It is quite lgre and little feeding.
    The action can be set low trs. It's a little fret clear sound (playing quietly ...),
    its disto no problem. The bends are not without pb.
    The Floyd is quite low, super convenient to ask the hand
    (More guitar is hungry, comfortable trs)

    small defect in my opinion for metalheads, but that is normal:
    There is no groove for the right arm.
    Gnant to beginners, there used to it very quickly sy.

    SOUNDS

    I play for a month, pluttmtal style (with large passages clear)
    I have not yet found a sound that kill in the clear, but it must be possible.
    In Split we get good clear sound, especially in the middle position to the handle.

    By distortion, incredible. There is power, sound prcis trs.
    I were rather DiMarzio or EMG, I must admit that I've been very surprised
    both Seymour. The neck pickup is very aerial and powerful
    bridge pickup super powerful (for its clear limits), with a good prsence
    of acute and severe. A small side though enjoyable vintage (c is very subjective ...). More
    he has an open sound (playing into agreements distortion is defined clearly enough
    each of the strings, much like the DiMarzio Steve's Special).

    In short, excellent and versatile trs (j d have tried on other styles, ca
    trs work well).

    OVERALL OPINION

    J had ordered the M1000 LTD at beginners, but my seller
    Fr bought this Horizon II, he managed to persuade me ...
    He said this guitar is versatile trs, to you to judge.
    Small precision, the M1000 is sold around 1400 euros,
    having a tui addition to any brand. For 300 euros
    more ESP you marked on the top of the handle, not LTD ..... ;-P
    (And with a beautiful tui ESP trs very solid!)

    Also I could compare it with a LTD F-200 team in EMG81
    (On the same amp and effects). The horizon s fate more than well, she
    is almost as powerful as EMG81, while providing harmonic
    much richer (lutherie. .....). A brief Russianness.

    I deprecated the change of microphones (for EMG81), both given the qualitbr /> on the violin, the Seymours are two quite suitable! Anyway with my config,
    j gets good sounds good nags (Metallica, DT ...)

    Conclusion:
    if I could, I m buying another! (The black one ...)

    LITTLE SHIFT:
    J ai change of opinion on one point, I have changed my pickups for four months:
    a DiMarzio Steve's Special in the Bridge
    a DiMarzio Air Norton in the Channel ...
    INCREDIBLE!
    Clearly we could find very good sound with norton or
    with two (j uses virtually split over !)...
    In distortion it rocks her mom, HUGE! Its very metal type,
    happiness!
    Solo very "hot" in handle, its very sharp and aggressive bridge!
    And for both, great precision in going back!
    yyyeeeaahhhh METAL RULES!

    optimal weight is not heavy for one in the corp grata in a flat table fin.la bomb without chamfer which can drang certain person but not perfect for me shred (Patrick RONDAT was using it say!) and sweeping.
    The sounds are easily obtained and even a blank one feels dja the vibration as much as a les paul (almost). standing the game is as easy that it's sitting premeire time I feel this and more with a beauty more than enough real favorite this GREAT (and yet has 15 years I practice I tried this guitar has a unique characters

    SOUNDS

    Versatility is the key word and Seymour have an output level but not too lev nothing to do with emg (though I love) there are in the excellent violin valeut horizon. TB4 bridge is the dynamic Presca and does not bleed at all trs trs Presc pchu Splitt and it is brilliant to amphetamines such strat lol. the sh1 is no exception it has less potato but is more typical that the cutting seymour duncan perfect for funk and jazz blue company a perfect companion for the split TB4 is the sound stratum little pr s more DEFINITIONS.
    I use it with a tube 50 hk (eh in preamp and gold ground tung + sovteklps in preamp) Upgrade through a celestion v30 all with a ed1 compressor marhmal and zoom g9 2tt really well and makes even a volume low.
    by its versatility no sound mushy or slimy hyper round (type emg 81) but a perfectly even heat prescision a splitter (arserv mainly to clear) no mtal extreme here, but any style I think can be first though lateinte see an overall hard rock heavy. I love all the sounds and the versatility and sustain natural pchu alli the edge of Seymour is credible in that the violin influence the microphones of the mark than the EMG Premire seen avrifier ! lol

    OVERALL OPINION

    The ratio quality price is good the quality is to go and Vou box is class
    jouabilit the extreme and versatility make this instrument a weapon for scne the studio and practice at home what Rusita and yet one might say that the form could be a many (not Chanfrain ) that a bomb that bb nni a must really better now that I know and Grat suits me more.
    fortunately I am of my choice and do it again without hsitation can be a 2 nt emg and more history to have a more extreme and metal.
    You run to buy a guaranteed satisfaction score of 9.5 + well MRIT

    COLOURS: See Through Black Cherry (Dark Red French.

    In short, we can not blame the characteristics of the guitar, at worst this may not be what you are looking, but somehow it's very well done! Perfect quality! I put a 10 out of 10 so ...

    UTILIZATION

    Played open, the guitar is very fun to play! The neck is PERFECT! At least for me! It is not super-thin like the Ibanez, it is quite "American", I mean, it is quite round (not a Gibson, everything is relative), in the shape of "D" ... In this way, it "slows down" some of my passions and Shredder are my top speeds instinctual MDR! But do not see this as a negative thing! Instead, the handle allowed me to put my game, and combined with the precision of the devil ebony fingerboard (bliss!), We get a handle secure, which prevents us from making the "pains" with the hand left (unless it is really disgusting in his game lol).
    Result, just passing on this set, I play 1.5 times better than before, and do not flip, peak speeds are still there even faster than ever! (One has only to look at some tests on Youtube to realize that the handle is not slow at all!). It could be likened to a TGV: It darkens serious but on track! Perfection I tell you, all in comfort!

    Access to acute is perfect too, that mean? The heel of the neck is perfectly cut in order to accommodate the hand when it comes to titillating the frets 23 and 24. In addition, you will find the photos that the lower cutaway guitar starts at the end of the handle, allowing access to optimal acute!

    The guitar is a bit heavy (nothing to do with a Gibson Les Paul of course) but once attached to his belt and played sitting comfort is perfect for the design of the guitar (its shape, cutting the stomach, etc.). It do not feel the weight ... The Floyd is perfectly in tune that it is the torture I subjected him nyeuheuheu ... (Long live the Dive Bombing nuclear !!!).

    Otherwise, to the sound, it gets a good very easily (Please Seymour Duncan). The guitar is very versatile, while keeping its character, it will be there whatever happens and even more if you need the amp!

    I put 10/10 again because it would be hard to find a default ...

    SOUNDS

    I play mainly metal, more or less straight forward, with a predilection for the Hardcore. However, I like to do a Jazz from time to time. So I oscillate between these two styles of music far away ... So I had an extremely versatile guitar, now I have!

    In any case she can meet my expectations ... The JB TB4 Bridge is perfect for all sorts of rhythmic and SH1n 59 'Channel is great for solos! Add to that the intermediate position which offers a hybrid between the two microphones, there's plenty to do! In addition, the split is particularly compelling, even if not "the real thing" and that the interests of the guitar is not ... It has six different positions ready to play just what you want ...

    JB Normal: Here we are in the "big sound" of the guitar with my Marshall it sounds good rock / Hard Rock (Rock of girls to forget BB Brune immediately ...). Once I plugged Metalcore pedal, it sends dry harmonics you jump to the face and the guitar responds perfectly! While we feel that it lacks a little when it is safe to send really big and really sharp (Son to Chimaira) ... it will be necessary to consider changing the EMG if you really want to reach the summits of the hand, personal 'I refuse to keep the versatility ... perfect for rhythm in any case, at least for the solos, a bit too garish for my taste, but if you have to win a little stage presence that is still compelling!

    +59' Normal JB: You get a little Gibsonian its very nice for jazz and funk rhythms to Dooby Brothers ("Long train running"). Superb crunch.

    59 'Normal: There is "the" sound for solos whatever the level of distortion ... only downside, it lacks a bit of whistling harmonics but for the rest: what a joy! We also find some small rhythmic bluesy ... apart from the brief rhythmic nags I see no limit to the micro ...

    JB Splitter: Here we get a nice little stratabound slamming his ... You know exactly what you can do lol! Perfect for the solo this time, but also in rhythm ... on the other hand, it's not "The Real Thing" as they say, so do not expect to be "the" sound of a Start 'with even if it is really nice and it brings a lot to the guitar ...

    JB +59' Splitter: The sound of Folk, great for rhythm, but as always, everything is relative ...

    59 'split: If you find the 59' too round and warm, the splitter! The uses are the same ...

    In summary, the guitar is perfectly at ease in saturation, a real bomb! As long as the gear and guitarist follow will not be a problem, although some prefer the power range of EMG almost infinite ... The split brings about a really clean sounds! The result can be played just about everything with this guitar, depending on his amp! With at least one sound convincing and in most cases its a damn!

    I put 8 because nothing is perfect in sound, and that should have been for 9 the ultimate in versatility, namely the distortion of EMG and sounds of a clear strat '... I'm too demanding? So what! XD

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 3 weeks and I'm madly in love! I love everything about this guitar (sold in Case by the way), I tried tons and tons of models before but nothing beats the handle and versatility ... The quality / price ratio is really orgasmic, because the only guitar that rivals in this field is the PRS Custom 24, which is 2 times more!

    With the experience I would do without hesitation!

    Hello all

    Model made "made in Japan"
    Well, at first ... but beark, but .... it's not for nothing that the small scrapers as J and K Hetfield Hamet's have adopted.
    After testing at the store ... the slap!

    UTILIZATION

    Then, 24 frets to the counter with bookmarks at the top (or bottom) of the handle. Quite honestly, it Drout to beginners (I play with a classic Gibson 1960)
    Floyd Rose finely crafted blend of very high quality 2 double Seymour with a first volume knob that switchent microphones (which button you press to activate one or two microphones) and a Tone knob.

    Mechanics do not move, you can make BENDS standards, the tuning is no pb. And for those who freak out about......

    UTILIZATION

    Then, 24 frets to the counter with bookmarks at the top (or bottom) of the handle. Quite honestly, it Drout to beginners (I play with a classic Gibson 1960)
    Floyd Rose finely crafted blend of very high quality 2 double Seymour with a first volume knob that switchent microphones (which button you press to activate one or two microphones) and a Tone knob.

    Mechanics do not move, you can make BENDS standards, the tuning is no pb. And for those who freak out about the change of rope (which silent in my case) is an absolute happiness. The change is timed in 2 minutes, not more. (Best is when you break a string at the palm, it can rcuprer)

    The balance?
    it is good, it holds well, it is not imposing, heavy without being bulky
    A single large BMOL: you can lower the volume without realizing it as a mic volume is too close to the strings (see foto)

    SOUNDS

    And sound in all this??
    it is very simple: it's super versatile and can play metal to blues, to rock to bossa. Glands because I ... I just dlaiss my gibson ESP for this ...
    you can have the weight, clear sound, finally, whatever you want (with an effect, it's even simpler)

    OVERALL OPINION

    Finally ...?

    I have since last May and I'm delighted
    I tried the signature model KH (double the price and less versatile)
    Quality price ratio?
    1100 euros in Paris more universal guitar strings and straps ...

    I'll take another good !!!!!

    PS: Take in black and red .. not the model I had red and ... BOAF beginners, it is not that great and gets bored very quickly.

    This little gem is made in Japan.
    24 jumbo frets, 2 Seymour Duncan humbuckers (L I'm not too much of a Sh1n in the neck position and a TB-4 in the bridge position.) Slcteur A three positions I have to say enough Aesthetics ^ ^
    Equipped with a beautiful pink floyd. I do not know the exact MODEL but it looks great! The agreement is, the tuning is not moving. In short, what rve!
    2 knobs, 1 volume and 1 Tone Systm with push / push a little bug that sometimes (once the button is up, it is sometimes difficult to go ....)
    Handle varnished profile round but not much. Even when it remains fairly flat trs to play fast.

    I put 8 in the push / push gche really all that.

    UTILIZATION

    I t very surprised, it is quite lgre from other guitar that I used. The weight is very well rpart, no problem. Once standing, what is funny is that we do not lose speed, it is also easy to play seated.
    The handle is enjoyable trs, trs we enter the high end in ESP. Access in acute trs is also good, I think we could add 2 or 3 frets without ESG has not.
    Otherwise not much to add ... I put 10/10 on this, I have not found a default ...

    SOUNDS

    Time to get srieuses: the sounds.
    This is a guitar that fits perfectly what I play: to know the Nightwish, Children of Bodom, Steve Vai ....
    _In Neck position is a rgale!! This gives her a trs round without much effort rglage. Once the microphone splitter (By pressing the push / push) We keep a good sound but much more trs attack near the stratocaster everyone connate. In his rendering is quite saturated bizare. I do not know how dcirre, I would say it looks like the micro lack of power. Well, it is a position that I love.

    _The Position intermdire I do not like it at all. The sound is trs (too) mtalique. It sounds a little too much crunch my taste. Once Splitt is even worse, the sound is hyper mtalique ....... : S with distortion, however, we get a sound pretty cool to be between the blues and rock.

    _The Bridge position, the most beautiful! The sound is extremely powerful and round, it's unbelievable. Harmonics out perfectly either in clean or saturated. Trs powerful riffs are Excellent in Palm mute the power place the microphone in obviousness. This position is PERFECT !!!!!

    I put 9 / 10 because of this position intermedire I do not like.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This is a guitar that I use for exactly 1 year. I had tried in the store and I won t! it rpondait my requirements perfectly. Still, I try many of MODELS ibanez, jackson, etc. .... but she had the best sound. I recommend this guitar I find exceptional for this price! I would do gladly did!
