As far as I can tell JerryC has one like this (mind the PUs) and says it's a ESP Horizon FR-II .The is no such color in either ESP site or any of the reseller website I can find. So, is this outdated model or something?


I'm looking at an offer for one used for around $1900. The current FR-II series is around $2750 but not sure if the price applies for this particular one.

I'm just a sucker for that color and finish. :drool:

Honestly, thats incredibly overpriced for what youre getting IMO.

Get a Caparison. Itll kick the **** out of any ESP youd ever have.

edit: Its not outdated, but its not a US model. Its a standard ESP in Japan though.

I know the price is a bit too high. But that color and finish is rarely seen on any guitar. If anyone find a similar for lower price please recommend right away. I don't give a **** about PUs since I will just replace them anyway...

I see, I would go for it. That is if you really want a Horizon.
Atleast try it out. It's not that pricey though, 12500 Kr is a pretty good price for a ESP isn't it?

They are individually made. They are made in Japan by a luthier who used to work for Jackson.

He makes them all by hand, one by one...with expect craftsmen. They are probably the best guitars in the world aside from other customs...just ask Peter Joseph from The Absence, Anders Bjorler from The Haunted, Michael Romeo from Symphony X, The guy from Evergrey...and millions of other guys.

Caparisons rock dude. They slay a gibson, fender, ibanez, or esp any day.
