Silly questions... Is that the metric size? Did you use the hipshot posts with the original inserts?
Not silly at all, it is Metric. They come with stud inserts as well, but I used the originals. They are standard M8x1 threads so they work with the original set.
Question for ESP folks:
Which would you choose:
E-II HORIZON FR
E-II HORIZON-III FR
Two very similar guitars. The regular Horizon is set neck, whereas Horizon III is neck thru.
There is no wrong answer here. Both guitars are very similar and excellent. The HIII hangs a bit different due to the offset. I don't find the HI/II uncomfortable, but the HIII can feel a little more comfortable.
Other than that, the HIII is alder body, HII is mahogany. The HIII will be a little bit brighter.
Id go with the black cockstock. Easier to move it later if need be since its not as "metal" plus its just so sick
Great point, thanks.
I already have this guitar:
So I figure the Horizon FR would be exactly the same aside from the bridge. I can't find one of the FR models to try near me, hence asking here. Since I already have the fixed bridge version, I feel fairly safe buying blind.
I was/am intrigued by the funkier shape of the H3, and the neck thru design though, hmm...
I love the H2 headstock, but I love neckthrough. That would be a toughie. But you already own the superior bright white one. So hmmmmm. Go H2 for superior headstock tones.
Either would be awesome. I prefer the cockstock on the H-3 body though, so for this particular comparison I’d probably prefer the Horizon.
Not real ESPs, but I recently sold the MV300 (might regret this later) I've loved for the past 5 years:
And picked up a gorgeous EC1000 from 2006 (I think):
With the Jacksons:
It came with an Air Norton/Evolution combo and I'm not totally sold on the tone so I'll be dropping in an EMG 89/81TW set tonight and tuning it to Drop-C for some 00's metalcore nostalgia
My updated family!
