Had this beauty for 3 weeks now, absolutely stunning finish on a fantastic ESP model: Admitted when I first saw the new Horizon-III model back in 2013 I rejected the headstock body combo, but this model has slightly grown on me ever since. Though it wasn't until the arrival of this year's new finish that it finally spoke to me. IMO the Black cherry finish really works wonder on this model! Besides the struckture this guitar has all the features I would want in a versatile shred machine and it fills in all the spots I lost after returning the Sugizo model last year. - Awesome slim thin U neck profile, close to extra thin, feels absolutely great to play. - Really nice smooth finish, very close to the Sugizo model I had last year without being Custom shop level. - Nice resonance with a great clear singing tone and eminent sustain. - Really great balanced Bass response, I'm surprised how good the low-end is in this guitar for being a maple neck thru alder body with maple cap construction. - Finish looks absolutely fantastic and the black hardware is just the right choice for this finish. Tons of pics as usual, video to follow at some point..
