    Happy Friday/Saturday, y'all.

    ESP Horizon-II in Electric Blue popped up on Yahoo Aucs.

    Quick notes: According to my references and knowledge, ESP did not make Horizon-II's in Electric Blue (there were Horizons in Electric Blue though; see below). The only solid colour I've seen in production is black. Also, there is no serial number. So, this is likely an old custom order. However, it is also possible that it's a refinish.

    For your reference, I included a picture of the production (end) Horizon-I in Electric Blue.

    Price is trending pretty low and, this is likely the only time you'll find one of these. So, you might want to snatch it up...

    Damn, I want that case. At that price I'd be fine with just tossing the guitar! But I see there's already at least one rebidding service registered with it, so probably it'll pick up at the end.

    That's a nice example, I really dig the color. @narad is on point, too - an ESP-branded flight case for a Horizon isn't common at all. I'd love to get a few of the Japan custom cases for my Horizons/Snappers.

    @mehegama This image you mean?

    It's not pretty but if it floats near its current price (unlikely, I know), it's not the end of the world, IMO. Wouldn't go swinging it around and whatnot, myself.

    Fuck! Electric blue looks fucking awesome with black hardware! My cousin got an electric blue LTD H100 in the year 2000 with chrome hardware. I didn't think black hardware would go with that color but fucking hell it looks good af!

    I was interested in getting one but when i heard what the process would be like from my local shop, i couldnt justify the risk. For an ESP dealer outside of Japan, they will have to make a bid to secure one of these guitars by way of a raffle (they will not have any choice on design or colours). After i saw the whole page of finished designs, i was really thankful i did not take the plunge. There was only 1 single model i would be willing to spend that kind of money on. [21 / E4990202] The rest (to me), look like quite horrible. Not surprisingly, i wasnt able to find that said piece being listed on digimart. Probably snatched up a long time ago

    Hi guys. I recently purchased this awesome ESP guitar and would like to get some information about it since I've been unable to find anything online. I have contacted ESP about it and all they can confirm is that it's a CS made in Japan in 1995 but they don't keep records of this era and are not able to provide any more information.

    The things I do know: I have never seen a headstock like this in any other ESP guitar before; the specs seem to be very similar to George Lynch signature models (no back cover plate, circular pot cavity, single volume pot with push pull for pickup change, custom shop Seymour Duncan pickups); also the guitar looks, plays and sounds amazing.

    The things I don't know: everything else. So any help would be totally appreciated, thank you very much in advance.

    Your best bet is posting on the official ESP forums as they have people there that can get you a lot of specifics.

    Can't say much, other that I've seen the sales ad for this - congrats on the purchase! How does it play/sound?
