Well folks; my 6 string beauty; my ESP Horizon FR-II just got resurrected with it’s original setup of EMG 81 and 85’s. Now; that might sound like a lot of redundant meaningless technobabble guitar nerd speak HOWEVER. This is good news.
I’m gonna finish the leads for Land of Secrets with this guitar; at least mostly. It’s an extremely exciting time to put on my old pair of boots and test drive the guitar that purrs like a lion after devouring its meal.
I beckon you to watch my YouTube channel as I will be reviewing the EMG 81 and 85 and giving a thorough in depth look at why they are misunderstood and a lot more awesome than they are. I’ll probably post the link in a separate post.
Anyhow; this is so awesome. It sounds so Mid and REALLY punchy. The thing can cut through mixes so easily – I am so excited to start hammering at my tunes with it again! Yes it’s a 6 string yes it’s not as functional as my 7 but damn it I’ve had it for years! There is love ; blood; sweat, tears and joy in this instrument!
It has travelled thousands of miles; seen the coasts of Canada, played on 4-5 albums, and will continue to serve me well.
I hate to sound like a poster boy for ESP Guitars but they really do age like a fine wine; and mine is getting particularly expensive.
