Comments about ESP E-II Horizon Electric Guitar with Floyd Rose:

Looks amazing to me and everyone else who has seen and commented on it. The polished ebony fretboard and tall, wide frets make for the smoothest fretboard I have ever played on any guitar, very nice. The arched top makes for easy access to the strings, also very agreeable. Weight is similar to a Strat, build quality and finish is excellent. Fret access is unimpeded all the way to 24, very playable. Sustain is very good. Pick ups delivery great tonal quality within the range typical for humbuckers. Down sides, neck was bowed backward, easy enough fix via the bi-flex truss rod. The tone pot was loose, had to dismantle and tighten nut, no big deal. One of the Gotoh tuners is not altogether right, as if a gear tooth is missing, although with the locking nut this is a nuisance rather than a playability issue. Would have benefited greatly from a coil split. I will need this for certain single-coil tones I prefer so I will have to do it myself if I want a guitar that can cover a full range of styles, and this will void the warranty, so that is big downer for me. The volume and tone knobs act like linear rather than audio pots, yielding very little effect on tonal quality/distortion roll-off except within a very narrow range at the wrong end of the dial, as in about the 1 out of 10 position. I think for this price range these important tone and playability details should have been given more consideration. Nonetheless, this is all fixable without a great deal of trouble or expense. One thing that I am mildly disappointed with that can not be fixed is the neck profile. It is advertised as "thin u" and so I was expecting a neck similar to an LTD M-100FM I own. It turned out to be more like a traditional C, similar to a Les Paul and thicker than my Strat necks. I almost took it back over this, but then I spent some time playing it and the fretboard won me over. Overall I am happy with it. With splits and my preferred pots it will be a fantastic general purpose guitar.

    Comments about ESP E-II Horizon Electric Guitar with Floyd Rose:

    Been playing for 15 years or so with various guitars, currently a Gibson Les Paul classic and a Schecter Hellraiser. This ESP is by far the best playing, best looking, and has the nicest finish/attention to detail than either of the other guitars I own. The reindeer blue finish is more of a royal blue compared to the photos in natural light and in fluorescent lighting looks more purple, along with the quilt top it is a stunner for sure. The "binding" is actually just a border of non colored maple from the top and contrasts nicely. The neck is thinner, flatter and slightly wider than my Gibson with the 60's neck. Topped with glass smooth polished ebony with smooth and rounded edges on the frets. Played awesome right from the box, no buzz and intonation set right. The stock Duncans cover a wide variety of genres so a change of pickups could be in order if you want something more specific sounding. Nice locking tuners and included strap locks round out a great package. One note however, this current model no longer has coil tapping like the previous model, my only small ding against it. This guitar has now made me an ESP fan for life and would gladly buy anything else that comes from the Japanese factory. If you are on the fence about it, do yourself a favor and get it, this is a keeper for sure.
