ESP E-II Horizon NT-II Guitar, Purple Gradation, EMGs, Quilt Top, Ebony Fretboard


Player's Perspective

ESP's E-II series guitars blend the unsurpassed quality of high end ESP models with the accessibility of the LTD line. They're immaculately built, professional-grade instruments ready for the stage, studio and road.

This axe offers crushing tone, stellar build quality and a beautiful gradient finish. It's a pretty straightforward guitar without a lot of bells and whistles on the surface: What you're paying for here is the delicate balance of excellent build quality alongside an extremely calibrated string feel and high quality pickups and electronics. It's a tougher build concept to pull off than it may seem - make a guitar that can withstand the abuse of a touring metal band, but make sure the feel won't get compromised by a fraction of millimeter in the process.

This is a guitar that can take a beating, look good while doing it, will never let you down in its construction, and will sound lean, mean, and ready to rock through it all.

Item Details

Formerly called “ESP Standard”, all ESP E-II instruments are created at our ESP factory in Tokyo, Japan, and are designed for professional players who accept no compromises in tone, feel, or reliability for their guitars and basses. if you’re looking for a high-performance guitar that will absolutely stand out from the typical instruments out there, the ESP E-II Horizon NT-II with its Blue-Purple Gradation finish is guaranteed to turn heads with its brilliant gradient color scheme over a quilted maple top. But the great looks of this guitar are only the start of the story. It’s a neck-thru-body shred machine, with a mahogany body, three-piece maple neck, ebony fingerboard with 24 extra-jumbo frets, and high-end components like a bone nut, Schaller straplock, Gotoh locking tuners, and a Gotoh TOM bridge and tailpiece with string-thru-body design. The sound of the E-II Horizon NT-II comes from a pair of EMG 66 (neck) and EMG 57 (bridge) active pickups. Includes ESP hardshell form-fitting case.
