Got these 2 Horizon-IIIs. One is a 2012 ESP Standard Series, all black. The other is the twin to my LTD Elite, but in black with a Floyd, from 2013. I had the pair of LTD Elites a few years back, and its pretty cool to have to pair again. The ESP was a nice find!! One of the better sounding and playing guitars I have owned. The LTD Elites are VERY similar, as expected, since these replaced the Standard Series before the E-IIs. All Japanese made. I love these guitars!!

I'm gonna act like I didn't already know and say congratulations!!!!

These guitars are nice for real though. MIJ ESP is serious business.

Congrats man! These are killer guitars. Personally I’m a bigger fan of the LTD Elites for the headstock alone. But all are killer guitars.

I like the 3x3 headstock better.

Right now they’re all setup in drop B so I can pick which ever one I feel like to play with the band.

Play and feel wise, they’re pretty much the same. The LTD Elites have bigger and more round low end. The ESP is tighter and a bit more focused. The black LTD elite has a wider sound overall than the green one. But these are very minor nit picky differences. They’re all very similar. I very slightly prefer the black ESP.

Yup. I got all 3 within the last month, and rewired each with new Bourns pots, switchcraft jacks, and Duncan custom and 59 pickups.

That's a great trio there! I definitely dig the body binding more on appearance alone, but the cock stock is hard to beat with an ESP logo.
