Created at the their facility in Tokyo, Japan, the ESP E-II Series is ESP's highest-quality factory-produced instrument collection. The ESP E-II Horizon-III is a bold variation on the classic ESP Horizon shape, with an extended and beveled upper horn and a shortened lower horn. Like other models in the ESP E-II Series, the Horizon-III 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. It's available in two versions: the Horizon-III FR (with Floyd Rose Original bridge in See Thru Black finish) or the standard Horizon-III (in Reindeer Blue finish, with a Gotoh TOM bridge and string-thru-body design). Both models use neck-thru-body construction, providing terrific tone and sustain, and fast access to the highest frets. The E-II Horizon-III offers some of the best-sounding and responsive passive pickups available, with a Seymour Duncan Jazz (neck) and a Seymour Duncan Custom 5 (bridge) pickup. Includes a hard case.
