    Hi all,

    there's an ESP Standard Series Horizon FR-7 neck-through with HSC on sale. The guy asks $1600 but after some talking he said I could send him an offer.

    What are a) good and b) reasonable price on those? I'll try to talk him into something inbetween. But this needs to be real quick...

    Thanks!

    D.

    That's high in the US, but no idea if European prices. They are very nice guitars.

    Hopefully they are. I want to buy this one but will have to sell my JP7 Std. to finance that
    what's a good deal on them in the US ? that will help too

    In the US, anywhere from $1000 to 1,200 would be ok. 1,300-1,400 is kinda high but you'll often find them listed for that (but not actually selling for that).

    JP7 is a nice guitar too. The FR7 neck feels "small" somehow, but I don't mean that in a bad way. Huge frets. Can't really go wrong either way.

    An EII horizon with a fixd bridge is 2Kish in europe, depending on finsih etc. I strangely couldn't find a new one that isn't an Original so I'd say a 7 would be 2K2ish. 1600 is sort of a "meh" deal. If it's mint it's not theft, but it's definitely not a good price.

    Concur with Cardinal and Feral. I've seen most sell for around the $1200 range. $1600 seems pretty high.
