    Probably one of the only LTDS that have it. Let alone one of the few ESPs period. I only remember the original Horizon basses, and later on some of the Horizon III basses, using them, but that's it. It's such an oddball guitar that I needed it. :lol: IIRC it was only made when ESP did that limited run of Japanes LTDs in the late '90s.

    It needs a neck shim, but that's pretty much it. It sounds beastly. I do wanna replace the pickups down the road, though. Needs a bit more brightness.

    Those are awesome, the oldest of old school LTDs. 96-04 are still the best period for LTDs I think.

    Agreed. The ones with the goofy, shitty nu metal logos seem to be the best. :lol:

    Yup, my H-207 has that goofy lowercase scribble. I think I might grab a H-200 if I can find one not beat to shit. Starting to think I prefer bolt-on guitars over neck-thru.

    If I were to grab another horizon, I'd do the same. Those old H100s, 200s, and 300s came in some cool finishes.

    Although my next purchase guitar wise is probably gonna be a Snakebyte.

    That H2 is very hard to find, those were in the original lineup. The H-100, H-200, and H-300 replaced them and all were made for a few years. A very cool find.

    How about an even older Horizon.... Bought this brand new in the late 80's to early 90's not sure of the exact time. Still plays decently, had to replace several parts of the craptastic sinclair floyd imitation with legit floyd parts. In a few more years it will need a fret job replacement. I also hated the angle of the trem bar so I heated and bent it to my liking since I had and still have no real intentions of letting it go. I have only seen one other on the net of the same era that this one is. It was white and about a year ago saw it on Reverb for sale. http://www.sevenstring.org/media/albums/esp-horizon-custom.9/

    It's why glad I found it. Got it for cheap because duder had no clue what he had.

    I wish they did a baritone cockstock horizon. I know theres the BS7 with the ebony board but those are rare as fuck.

    As it so happens, they did. Not sure if you are aware of this model, but it's called the HB300...also quite rare, but they do exist. :)

    Derp. Meant 7 string. :lol:

    I do wanna possibly get one of those eventually. Or a SCT607B. I kinda miss jamming in G tuning.

    Saw this used Horizon in natural quilted finish with BKP Blackhawks for 1400€ (~1650$)

    Is it too pricey or should I go for it ?

    Assuming it is a Standard Series ( I believe they had this color for Europe), it is a bit pricey. Max is usually around $1200 US used. Though it is cool enough, as that color is not common at all, that I might consider paying more.

    Yeah it is a cool and unique color but unless it is a Custom Shop that is way over priced IMO.

    Yup. that is where the uniqueness comes in to play. Is it cool/rare enough that you personally would pay more for the guitar than what the guitar actually is worth?

    Really nice guitar. It is the M-II NT with the hipshot bridge. String through body, factory BK Aftermath pickups. Bound neck. Natural binding on the body.

    Pickups are dirrct mounted. Very aggressive, in a good way. I didn't buy this one to play blues licks. :D

    Neck is fantastic. Fast and very comfortable. Just like you would expect. Fit and finish is superb, like all japanese ESP's. It has quickly become my #1a for the metal/hard rock stuff. It is right uo there with my PRS core Tremonti. Different flavors but both equally great guitars.
