ESP USA Horizon-II Guitar, See-Thru Black Cherry Sunburst


Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to offer up this ESP USA Horizon-II guitar finished in a luscious deep black cherry sunburst.

This is an excellent way to get some of the best craftsmanship ESP has to offer in an American-made guitar that is absolutely shred-ready in every way. The Horizon-II is an aggressive and modern design that takes no prisoners in playability or tone. From the top down the guitar is built impeccably. The fretwork allows for nice low action and the Tune-O-Matic bridge gives you seemingly infinite sustain along with immaculate intonation. The Seymour Duncan pickups are versatile but definitely are ready for some rock. The neck is thin and lightning-fast while the fretwork is done with pinpoint accuracy.

This is a guitar that's built to rock. It is primed and ready to let loose!

Manufacturer's Description

Crafted at our ESP USA facility in Southern California, the USA Horizon-II gives you a premium-quality version of the ESP Horizon with a wide variety of personalization options. It pairs a carved-topped mahogany body with a set-thru three-piece maple neck at 25.5” scale, thin U-shaped for comfort and speed, and includes an ebony fingerboard with 24 extra-jumbo Jescar stainless steel frets and abalone offset block inlays. Its neck and headstock are all fully bound. Like other ESP USA models, the USA Horizon-II is available with optional flamed maple and quilted maple tops and your choice of dozens of gloss and satin translucent finishes to allow the figured wood grain to be highlighted (and plain maple caps for solid color finishes).

We only use the finest components with ESP USA guitar models, and the USA Horizon-II features Sperzel Trim-Lok tuners, a TonePros locking TOM bridge with a string-thru-body design for excellent sustain and resonance, Dunlop strap locks, and a graphite nut. This one comes with Seymour Duncan pickups. The USA Horizon-II includes a high-quality ESP USA form-fitting hardshell case.
