    Got a nice shape ESP Horizon III. I was hesitant cos I thought it looked like a fat neck profile and seems heavy but glad I gave it a try. The headstock looks weird at first but I got used to it. I like the inlays on this thing. Might swap the pickups to Black Winter set.

    Gotoh Floyd came stock???? Or did someone manage to wreck the OFR that fast?

    That is the sickest Horizon III I have ever seen.

    The Gotoh Floyd is an excellent addition, though I can't say I've ever seen ESP use it in place of an OFR on a production model. It's possibly the best Floyd variant, IMO, even over Lo-Pros.

    Dude a pair of Black Winters would match that guitar's vibe so well.
    Looks like a great addition to the collection- HNGD!

    Wow that is mean AF! Absolutely gorgeous!
    What year is this? Is it a Custom Shop or an older Standard Series?

    The serial says 12 so I think it must be 2012 but not too sure though. Just standard series.
    Thanks!


    That’s good to know, not really that familiar about FR’s. It has trem lock installed and I didn’t mess with it.

    Fucking killer Horizon III! Perfect example too. I love the all black with just neck/HS binding, so slick and classy.

    That looks like something the original Alien (1979) would play! :cool:
