Created at the ESP facility in Tokyo, Japan, the ESP E-II Series is ESP's highest-quality factory-produced instrument collection. The E-II Horizon NT 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 offers set-thru construction for fast and smooth access to the highest frets, pairing a mahogany body with maple top to a three-piece maple neck with ebony fingerboard and 24 extra-jumbo frets. You'll appreciate the feel of fine, detailed workmanship each time you pick up the E-II Horizon NT (the "NT" stands for "non-tremolo), which includes high-end components like a Gotoh TOM bridge and tailpiece, a bone nut, Schaller straplocks, Gotoh locking tuners, and more. This guitar offers some of the best-sounding and responsive passive pickups available, with the Seymour Duncan Jazz (neck) and a Seymour Duncan '59/ Custom hybrid (bridge) pickup that has to be heard to be believed... you'll have a level of responsiveness and tone variety rarely achieved in instrument design. The E-II Horizon NT is available in Dark Brown Sunburst with flamed maple top, or solid Snow White finishes, and includes a hard case.
