Hi there, i purchased a esp horizon NT-II last year although i have absolutely no idea what strings they most likely came with, they seem thick to me, i play mostly neo-classical metal and all that type of music, do you know what strings they came with? Also, what type of ACTION is best for metal-neoclassical,soloing for great sound?

They come with country strings. Sometimes they use western strings just to be different.

well, I don't know about the type of strings, but the action I can try to help you with. try as low as it can go without buzzing, and if thats too uncomfortable, try heightening it

i play metal and my personal favourites are Ernie Balls Beefy Slinkys...
But they're thick as hell.
depends what tuning you're playing in aswell.

The ESP will probably come with a heavy top light bottom around 52 -10

For real?

Everything is taste...but the strings you like, put 'em up and set it up to play how it feels comfortable to you.

There is no best.

If you mean some sort of neoclassical shredding, lower the action as far as you can without getting buzz.

DR make rather good strings. A lot of people seem to go for Ernie Ball, but I believe they have a shorter life span.

ESP guitars have SIT strings, I was at the store the other day and play an EC-1000. I too noticed the strings were thick. The tag said SIT strings. I've got some on my SG but I don't really like them. Best strings I've played were elixer.

Usually stock ESP's will come with SIT strings, gauge 9-42 to save money.
