Beauties! The neck on the first one looks really wide. What is the width? Maybe it is just the picture...

Cheers!!
On the horizon ... roughly.. 1st fret 4.1 cm, 12th fret 5.1 cm, 24th fret 5.7cm .. It's a round neck.. more of what I'm used to playing but not as round as schecter HR..

Eclipse is thinner neck & a bit wider fretboard..

So both of them compliment each other very well.

Holy cow! Two new ESP at once? If I read about a bank job in Melbourne, I know who is to blame tongue.gif

But seriously, stunning guitars! I love the horizon with the passive pups, I don`t like it with EMG! Same with the eclipse, beauuuutiful finish! I would just have changed to some BKP and get a matching gold cover for them smile.gif

Glad you liked em.. smile.gif
Both of em have a distinct feel.. I plan to use Eclipse more for the rhythm stuff (convenient for drop tunings) and Horizon for the lead work.... Horizon will probably become my main axe .. So that's what riding a dragon must feel like smile.gif

Oh and this constitutes my next 3-5 birthdays, Christmas,newyears etc etc .. all together biggrin.gif

Don't worry, you'll have your Axe-FX soon wink.gif .. i know it... It's just around the corner .. I can smell it tongue.gif
.. Then I'll be the jealous one.

No, I love my Schecter.. Will try to use it for alternate tunings .. Drop C etc and riffwork . It screams smile.gif

Yea, Andy is endorsed by ESP smile.gif but they hand him LTD models .. that kindda sucks.
