NGD - ESP Horizon NT

Post by phonix » Sat Jan 04, 2014 2:10 am

Hi all. After looking everywhere for what felt like the longest time, I finally found and purchased my first Horizon. I'd contacted a bunch of people and having heard little back over quite a few weeks, caved in and bought a mint condition LTD MH-1000NT on NYE to tide me over (I'd already sold my only guitar). Then 2 days later, someone I'd contacted weeks back saw the PM and got back to me saying "yeah, the horizon's still available"...

I went and checked it out, and it was basically mint condition with a gorgeous quilted top that appears to be really dark brown (was advertised as see-thru black). Well it looks almost black in most light conditions but in pictures it comes up very much a brown. Can anyone identify the colour?

Picked it up for a great price too! I'm so happy with it :)Just need to give it a good clean and adjust the action slightly.

Pics!

Thanks man. I cleaned it all, oiled the fretboard, polished out some very light scratches and restrung it with some elixir 10-52's then set the action and the neck tension up and wow, plays and sounds amazing now. Loving this thing.

Congratulations. Can't go wrong with a Horizon.
