Great as expected from ESP
Melfice, 16.03.2018
The guitar is great.
Playability is the best of my ESP guitars so far. Super tuning and the ergonomic design is very super. This guitar is not too heavy in terms of weight either.
The sound of the elements is phenomenal, you hear the sustain, the heat and all this is energized by the wood of which the body and the neck is made.
Floyd Rose works as you might expect. Stable and well adjusted.
Little adjustment was needed out of the box.
The finish is just I say it again, phenomenally. So an eye for detail. From the paintwork to the bindings so you see the original wood structure and color. The color is really cool. The accompanying case is, as usual, super quality.
All in all a must have for ESP enthusiasts. It is my first E-II variant, but I hope it is not my last.

Wet eyes ...
Roman A., 18.12.2018
So far I played an Epiphone Les Paul and a Fender Mex-Strat (with humbucker in the bridge) ... both by the way with EMG s
They are not bad instruments, faithful workhorses in my little homerecording studio and my 2 rock / metal bands ... but ...

I kind of wanted something "rounder" ... better, for Rock / Metal.

After a long search I got stuck at the Horizon ...

When the instrument was delivered and I unpacked it in the presence of my wife, I got a complaint, I would not have looked at my wife for a long time more than this very noble guitar .... ;-)

The visual impression is purely phenomenal of the color, even if I should have chosen color / football-technically rather red, but there are no ...
Processing, painting, etc. is all outstanding!
The pots are placed where they belong and work well,

So the part plugged to the kemper and tested on the native Genelec 1030A near field.

The instrument is fantastic in the hand, even if I first very shy "access" like a new love, where you first pretend ....
Fired a few faster leads and I realize I've saved at least 2 weeks of hard practice .... it just goes faster and more accurately on this fingerboard!

The fingerboard / frets of course feels different in comparison to the above instruments, especially because of the 24 frets that I wanted so much .... but there's nothing scratching, everything absolutely round !!!

So, the sounds ....
First in the Metal section, various Marshall and Boogie rigs durchgesteppt and a few riffs and chords (not just power chords) rausgedonnert on the bridge pick-up ....
Fat old, the youth would say today, but yes you hear even at the highest Zerre the 3rds out ... what is THAT? hot!

With more moderate tugging, crunch etc it gets really nice (blues) rocky, warm, the tone control works unusually precise and is really usable.

Then I gave it to me right and plucked over the neck pick-up on a clean rig a jazzed Christmas carol .... my mother finally wishes me .... I'm afraid that will flicker ...
Even something like that goes with the supposed metal ax ...
Did that before with the Paula tried .... no chance ....

The baptism of fire was the guitar then in the band rehearsal .... sound technically, I had no more thoughts anyway .... but I had almost feared for lead parts I feared Horizon will play for me .... in high altitudes There is no more slipping or so.
What I also noticed in the noise that the tone control really is to be described as such and the heights take something out does not immediately lead to "Mumpf".

Oh well, that's Floyd Rose .... that's ok on my Strat but really extreme Dive Bombs I hardly dared ..... now that's no problem anymore .... there you can go down to hell and back and then up .... stays in the mood!

I'm afraid I could write two more pages now ...

Buy the Trump !!!
