Smile Early ESP Horizons

Hi guys.

This is a thread about early ESP Horizon models (jackson headstock). If you have any info on this guitars write it down.

I'm sorry if this kind of thread already exists.

So the current Headstock? The Jackson Shaped hocky sticl? I guess I thought the older ones were cockstocks?

No, ESP used to have a direct Jackson headstock, their modern M shape is a bit different and the angle goes a different way at the tip. OP, there are probably a ton of different Horizons that match the one you saw. Do you know anything else about it?

I see them on Ebay a lot. Try looking for ESPs on Ebay and you will find a couple. I usually see at least one or two Horizons on there sometimes.

Jackson, Fender and ESP Guitars

Those with "cockstock" were later 90's models, these jackson headstock models were made even before 90's or in the begining of 90's. They are just so beautiful, fell in love with them instantly.

Church2224: really? i've been searching for them alot but with no luck..

an example of this model:

I've seen a ton of these pre/early 90s horizons on craig's list and on some Japaneses online used guitars stores over the past 4 years.

When having a hard time find one for sale at a good price use craigspal + determination + paypal for best results.

atticmike: haha It's not custom model, these were early horizons, but then Jackson sued ESP because of the headstock, and then "cockstock" came in in mid 90's.

Viginez: Mirages are beautiful too, although i prefer horizon body. But damn they are expensive.
