    They also added Javier's first custom, which is strange cause it's been out in the wild for a while.

    I didn’t know he had this until I saw Mestis live last summer. I have never been so jealous of an ESP/LTD endorsee until I saw that thing. Javier taking tequila shots off of the top of it was just icing on the jealousy cake.

    Ok. This is perfect. I love my Floyds and the horizon shape.

    Huh. There are a couple of 8s with Floyds from ESP, which is more than any other major brand. I’m almost wondering if ESP will be the first one over the hill on this. I’d kill for any of the ones shown!

    I know it's a strat, but do we really need that 2nd tone knob at this point?

    If the Strat has a bridge single coil, it's really nice to have a tone control dedicated to the bridge pickup. Most people leave it turned down to 7 or 8 at all times to take the edge off the otherwise super bridge and thin bridge pickup. But you also kinda want a tone control for the neck and middle pickups for when you'd like that super smooth neck pickup thing.

    Oh, and for all of us 8-string trem lovers, don't forget that E-II actually made a prototype of the HRF with a Floyd

    I looked up an old video by Namba69 from two years ago and ko-hey was using that guitar in the video. So it does not appear new.

    I think it just wasn't available to the US market.

    Does anyone know if ESP has any type or Horizon 7 string (or other model) in a bolt-on neck model? I love what I'm seeing on some of these models and love neck thru, but I hesitate to buy a neck through because with a bolt on I know I can get exactly what I want out of it via shimming tilting the angles, alignment etc.

    In the LTD line, there was the second variant of the BS7 and then the old H307. Both killer guitars and I wouldn't look down on them for being LTDs.
    Wanting to shim the neck willingly is an odd reason to me for going bolt on, but I suppose we all have our thing.

    Did anybody see this..? Newest prototype from esp. I for one am excited, if they made this as a 27” 7 string I’d have to buy immediately but a 25.5 6 I’m good with too.
