A crystal-clear set of Duncans lets every note ring out

Serious guitarists don't hide behind their pickups; they celebrate the kind of clean and clear sound you'll get with an ESP E-II Horizon FR. That's because ESP loaded the E-II Horizon FR with a special set of Seymour Duncan humbucking pickups. This set includes a Duncan Custom 5 TB-14 at the bridge and a Jazz Model SH-2 at the neck. Less distortion from your pickups means you can push your overdrive tones further, making the E-II Horizon FR an ideal axe for classic rock and similar styles.

It's like they read my mind!

I've been a Gibson player through and through for 15 years but after really getting into thrash metal and shred I knew I should be looking elsewhere for Floyd Rose equipped monster. This guitar is absolutely perfect, plays like a dream, has tone and sustain that blows me a way, and the hardware can't be beat. It stays in tune so well in between string changes and gigs. I'll be taking it on it's first tour in about 6 weeks and I am confident it will perform like a boss the whole time. I'll be saving up to buy another at the end of the year because, well - I'm hooked. Gibson, you're great but ESP has it all!
