This thread should have probably been made some time ago. My question is basically: ESP willing and you have $4000 of fun money right now, would you buy a USA Horizon? Yes or No. Nothing in between (please read below for why) Specs (Stock) Mahogany Body (with Quilted Maple Top on See Thru Colors) Neck-Thru Maple Neck with Ebony Fretboard Thin "U" Neck Profile 24 Extra Jumbo Frets 1.65" Neck Width at Nut 25.5" Scale Length TonePros T3BT Bridge Schaller Locking Strap Buttons Sperzel Trim-Lok Graphite Nut Let's get through some stuff: ESP USA IS NOT A CUSTOM SHOP. Keep this in mind as you read what follows. So, consider: 1. The price is around $4000 USD 2. Let's assume this was some kind of special run, kind of like the E-II situations. 3A. This is for the USA Horizon STOCK/AS-WAS (see above). This means no changes from the original specs. No weird finishes, no stainless steel frets, no fanned frets, no special pickup options, no inlay weirdness, no scale length weirdness, no gloss body/satin neck, etc. You hopefully get the idea. This should not be shocking if you read the above. 3B. Assume that the only changes are those that you can make in the current configurator. That is Color (Solid or See Thru), Pickups (SD or EMG), and Finish (Satin or Gloss) 4A. Why is there no option for people on the fence? Because I only want to know how many people would definitely buy one if available (considering the statements in Item 3). I don't need to know how many people like the idea of having one available. That information is ultimately not relevant to information I'm trying to gather. Not trying to be a jerk, but I need concrete "Yes, I would"/"No, I would not". 4B. If your answer is "No, I would not" feel free to tell me why you would not get one. Please give a concrete answer. Please don't tell me, "There aren't enough options". Tell me, "I want a hipshot" or "I want a maple fretboard". It would be helpful if people "liked" the post(s) that they agree with. The idea is to understand SSO's main spec hangup with the stock horizon. Please don't tell me about price. Price is what it is. 4C. Also for the "No" people, It would also be helpful if you only consider specs that you've seen done on the other USA guitars. That means, hipshots, floyds, fingerboard woods, etc. Please don't tell me "I want an evertune", as that is not an option on any of the other USA guitars. Again, concrete yes or no. Obviously, stuff happens and situations change that prevent some things from happening, and that's understandable. But, for now, let's just consider that everything is hunky dory. --------------- Also, one last thing. I'm not trying to get anyone's hopes up. So, just to be clear, there is still no way to get a USA Horizon (through dealer or otherwise) that I'm aware. The posts in this thread aren't necessarily going to aid in resurrecting it. This really is just information for me. That being said, many of us on here are passionate about ESP, and passionate about the Horizon in particular. What I'm trying to do is gauge how many of us actually want a USA Horizon. ---------------- It would be helpful for me if you formatted your post as follows: Vote: Yes/No Version: Horizon II-NT(Blade Headstock)/Horizon(Teardrop Headstock) If No, Why?: Please Give a Spec Reason Thank you for your help. Future generations will remember what you did here today!
