The ESP LTD Horizon 87 electric guitar brings high-gain rock attitude with versatile tone shaping potential. Built for shredding leads and rhythm riffs, the Horizon 87 features neck-thru body construction with a thin, fast maple neck and alder wings for singing sustain. Its Macassar ebony fingerboard has 24 extra jumbo frets for fluid playing across the neck. The Horizon 87 equips you with a Seymour Duncan TB-5 humbucker in the bridge and Hot Rails single-coil sized humbucker in the neck. Both pickups have push-pull coil tapping for a palette of humbucking and single-coil tones. Keeping everything locked in tune is a Floyd Rose 1000 double locking tremolo. Plug in the Horizon 87 and unleash your inner shred demon.

Built for Speed With a Neck-Through Body Design

When you need a guitar that can keep up with your lightning fast solos, the ESP LTD Horizon 87 is here to oblige. Its neck-thru body construction promotes immense sustain, letting your notes ring out strong and true. The extra-thin 3-piece maple neck plays fast and smooth, while the Macassar ebony fingerboard provides a slick surface for your fingers to fly across its 24 jumbo frets. You'll be able to blaze from one end of the fingerboard to the other with ease, nailing every bend, slide and hammer-on flawlessly. Pair that with the Horizon 87's 25.5" scale length and you've got a guitar primed for shredding.

Shape Your Tone with Versatile Seymour Duncan Pickups

The versatile pickup configuration lets you shape tones from screaming leads to fat rhythms. The Seymour Duncan TB-5 Trembucker bridge humbucker has an overwound coil for hot output while retaining articulation. In the neck position, the single-coil sized Hot Rails humbucker delivers thick, rich tones. Both pickups have push-pull coil tapping, allowing you to split the signal for single-coil tones. Mix the full humbucking output and split coil tones to craft the perfect tone for leads or chunky rhythms. The master volume and tone knobs provide even more tonal control.

Rock Solid Tuning Stability with Floyd Rose Tremolo

No matter how wild your whammy bar antics get, the ESP LTD Horizon 87 keeps rock solid tuning stability with its Floyd Rose 1000 double locking tremolo. The Floyd Rose uses string clamps at the nut and bridge along with fine tuners to provide tuning stability rivaling a fixed bridge guitar. From subtle warble effects to dive bombs, the Floyd Rose lets you express yourself without going out of tune. The Floyd Rose 1000 model features a stainless steel block and base plate for precise tuning and smooth tremolo feel. Unleash your creativity with the tuning freedom of the Floyd Rose 1000.
