    Is it possible to order the same guitar model again, even though it was returned the first time because of features you didn't like? Yes absolutely:

    So in 2018 I ended up returning the E-II Horizon Sugizo model cause the vintage frets completely surprised me. I wasn't sure if I would be able to fully enjoy the guitar having the challence of playing the lower frets. Since my economy back then was weak and there where other things I needed more, I made a quick decision and took advantage of getting the full refund while still possible.

    Problem is that I totally felt in love with this model even before receiving it and when I finally got it I really liked the sound, the feel of the finish and the overall look. So returning it left me devastated, it was just one big anti climax back then.

    Now I'm correcting the problem and getting this model back in the collection.


    Cons:

    Vinatge frets = your fingers getting lower to the fretboard

    Middle pickup position



    Pros:

    Vintage frets = faster responce

    Middle pickup can be lowered enough not to be a problem at all

    Sounds awesome, I really like the Duncan distortion pickup

    Fantastic sustain

    Thin-U neck profile and smooth finish feels great to play

    Amazing quilted top, some of the small patterns somehow reminds me of Dan Seagrave artwork

    Nice 3D Quilt effect

    Overall stunning looking finish

    Broken heart now fixed!


    The vinatge frets didn't seem to bother me this time but I will have to cut nails more offen in order to play things like 6 sting cords properly.
