One of the best necks I've played. Very thin. A tiny bit wide for me but it's gives a good stretch to the fingers.
Very light and versatile axe in my opinion.

I have a heavy and aggressive hand while playin and after switching from Schecter, this almost felt like a toy guitar. laugh.gif
.. I had to be careful not to snap the neck in half !!

The only downside for me is the access to higher frets, which is a bit difficult to play as I'm not used to such LP shaped bodies.
But I'm gettin used to it. smile.gif

Dont have many. But I will certainly post a pic of my first axe. She's dead and buried.
Just have to resurrect it one day to take pics tongue.gif

I've had my eyes on horizon it looks so nice and it has all the 'features' that I look in a new guitar (for faster playing when I get there hehe). Zsolt, to be honest, your guitar is the one that got he thinking in the ESP alternatives smile.gif Love this color and yours is also just beautiful.

Zen,

I tried out your model in the store and loved it but I was looking for a fixed bridge. Checked their catalogue online and instantly fell in love with the Custom. The more you play those beautiful works of art, the more you'll love them! Enjoy mate, enjoy. smile.gif

Completely agreed .. Big thanks goes to my good friend NoSkill who is also an ESP freak.
I first saw the eclipse on his vids and instantly wanted to have it.
Yea, I'm still gettin used to both of em. smile.gif The setup on my Horizon may require a little bit more adjustment in terms of action. Just notice it very slightly when im playing high frets. It's a matter of getting used to it too.
I might fix that when i change the strings.
Did you try the eclipse? You might've had a meltdown if you did laugh.gif
I was actually looking for a floater so all my guitars can compliment each other ..coz the rest of my guitars are fixed bridges.

Well.. Yes, You do need a new guitar. But i know you will buy it pretty soon. Hang in there mate .. Your playing is pretty good and that is what matters most.
I waited for 2 years before purchasing these tongue.gif

Both awesomele beatuiful guitars. Congrats on your purchase man!
I love the matte finish on the Eclipse.

I've heard a lot of good things about ESP guitars, but haven't played one yet. I'll have to get out to Guitar Center and play one sometime, but it might be an expensive adventure. laugh.gif

sure zen.. i am making a camel out of some great features of some guitars... biggrin.gif I am not liking the double nut feature as its just such a time waster to tune and/or anything happens to the guitar like now. So, a mix of andy timmons AT100, neck/pickups and SV5470F for tremolo, auto locking tuning pegs.. smile.gif taking a minimal / simplistic approach.. Just 2 pickups like the JS2400.
