The ESP Horizon line has expanded with new models for 2012. The Horizon FR-27 is a completely new Japanese-made ‘super-strat’ that features a 27-fret neck (with scalloped frets from 12-27). and neck-thru construction, Seymour Duncan Custom 5 (bridge) and Hot Rails (neck) pickups, and an original Floyd Rose bridge.
The ESP Horizon FR-27 is a super-shredder, with not 22 or 24… but 27 XJ frets. The fretboard is scalloped beginning at the 12th fret, allowing for a super-light touch for even faster playability.
