    Didn't see an ESP General thread and this wasn't really relevant to their 2021 lineup so I thought best to ask it here:

    My memory is a bit off, but what were the deal with those limited run Scandinavian Horizons?

    Weren't they a store-ordered or regional custom run?

    Was watching a vlog from the Alexi 100 Guitars From Hel event and saw a Horizon that looked similar to what I remember of the Scandinavian run

    Tried to use some Google-fu to find it but didn't stumble upon anything

    Swear they came in matte black/white and had the Seymour Duncan Black Winters before they were released to the worldwide public

    You are correct and @Blytheryn had the one I’d imagine you were referring to. The BW was after market though. He could answer more but I think they were alder too IIRC.
    They were a regional run of production Standards. Not custom.

    Eh, after seeing yours I can't look at this one without thinking how much it needs a maple board.

    But ya, not a smart guy who would spend $6,600 on a horizon... I think not many are "going" for that price.

    This one was the inspiration for mine. But I obviously agree that the maple board is perfection.
    I mean, take listed prices as a starting point and even if many aren’t going for $6.6k, they’re probably not going for $4k.
    My custom was $5300, which was only $300 over this at the time. Granted always a little budge in price on an already built guitar, but, again, $4k on this is an incredible deal. If you were to get it for less, even better.
    I do recall someone here looking for this one before, but can’t remember who. Maybe @Ikke does?
