ESP Horizon FR w/Duncans
My dream has always been ...

Guitar made in Japan by ESP.

Its body is ash, the neck is maple and the fingerboard is ebony.
The bridge is a floyd rose original.
The pickups are Seymour Duncan SH1-n to the neck and TB4 in the bridge.
The handle is operator and has 24 frets. It is shaped and U-Thin is painted.

It has a volume button push push for micro splitter, a tone knob and a 3-position selector.

Sold flycase ESP

UTILIZATION

The handle is a standard in ESP: The Thin-U. On the Horizon, the handle is painted and varnished. This handle is a blessing, very nice, very well slip, access to acute nickel because of the neck-through ...

The guitar is made of ash, it weighs a little but nothing serious. It is perfectly balanced in an upright position.

The sound comes out very easily, and the few available settings (selector micro, micro split) are very easy to use.

The finish is exemplary, this guitar is beautiful to look at and great to play! A nice short white binding along the neck, head and body giving a very nice look to the guitar. More blocks are pearly tracking the most beautiful effect and perfectly match the look of the guitar.

Only slight black spot, painting of my two knobs completely disappeared after 1 year of use ...

SOUNDS

This guitar is perfect for my style metal oriented symphonic / operatic, to summarize, one could say it's a quiet strength. It is very versatile thanks to the seymour duncan pickups and splittage. In addition, ash body gives a special sound on guitar, very much appreciated.

By force alone, I mean she can just as easily send very large saturated sound in the bridge position not split, as the crystal clear sound on the neck pickup split!

The Original Pink Floyd very well also keeps the agreement, and even if the setting is daunting, its use is a treat.

I play on a Line6 SpiderValve 112 all-tube, and the sound is really a treat.

OVERALL OPINION

I use this guitar for a year and a half, and it's a treat every time out of his box to play with!

I tried a lot of model before it (for big investment), such as Prestige Ibanez or Jackson Dinky, but there is no photo, it's by far my favorite. This guitar is very versatile, excels in many areas and has a look of both "race", distinguished and sober.

Basically, it goes everywhere! My only regret is really painting the knobs that disappeared.


The price / quality ratio is good, because the ESP is really a monster! With experience, I would do much choice, and I think the horizon is the first in a long series of ESP that I would buy in the years to come!

Channel Technical relatively flat, the biggest concern of the handle width a real handicap for metals since it is a guitar designed to be released métalaux easily handle the terrible discomfort when going fast and technical, so we did a little but the gene still has a major flaw that breaks a bit this beautiful guitar, I'm very happy anyway.

With experience I have chosen another guitar without hesitation, ESP Sorry but this time it's a bit dud (still a great respect for this manufacturer).

UTILIZATION

The handle is it nice?

Yes, despite a very easy way out

Access to acute (last string) Is it easy?

Fairly easy

Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?

Commonplace Beauty (AC agrees very well I like the sober) relatively heavy heavy guiatres mas I like ^ ^ they are feeling well. Very durable guitar.

gibsonclassic's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

ESP Horizon FR w/Duncans
Guitar made in Japan ... so .. TOP quality!
24 frets I think, with Floyd Seymour D Original
1 volume control (which can splitter!), 1 tone control and a button selection of microphones.
1 defect, the volume control is placed too near the ropes, so that ... it's hard .. but we made it
the neck is thin and round ..
good, a bit like gibson, so super easy!

going to summarize .. TOP quality
attention ... this is not a LTD !!!!!!! also to be avoided!

a large black spot .. : Benchmarks of the boxes at the top (or bottom of the handle ..) AC, galley because it requires them to do when you go to the treble is very very painful

UTILIZATION

The neck is perfect, easy, ergonomic, the ideal
the access to acute and very easy
the weight is relative, but the guitar is very balanced, which is played sitting or standing
.. it sounds of the ball!
we have a range of possibilities allucinantes (6 possibilities without touching anything with the choice of microphones)

SOUNDS

I play more blues, rock, metal .. it is the foot

I even found a configuration setting for one of his Fender Start in saturation or steady crunch ...

Digitech RP3 and hi watt 100w is really happiness: good wholesale, you can get the sound critalin the intro of Nothing Else Matters, and suddenly ... you can spend a good saturation, no dribbling, deep and powerful .. the pedal necessarily help, but the guitar is for bcp!

I play a bit of Satriani's ditto .. ..

OVERALL OPINION

I've had 2 years ..
I love the pallette of sound, build quality, accuracy, floyd ..
I tried the signature Hammet .. K is 1000 euros more expensive ... but you have EMG are less versatile

So ... no contest
I refer this choice without concern, major concern of the landmarks still fret
