This guitar is 1 of 15 Green Horizon-III models released as a special run for a dealer in Florida. It is a bonafied made in Japan ESP guitar, don't let the name fool you! LTD Elite was the predecessor to E-II and features all the same specs! I've changed out the bridge pickup for a slightly hotter Seymor duncan pickup than the stock JB that came with the guitar. Plays like a dream and is very rare!
