Horizon MK II Guitar (above)


The Horizon MK II is based on the MK I in our model range, but stepping a bit further away from the established design the MK I was based on. It has a familiar pickup and control layout, but the body shape retains hardly any of the lines from the original, creating a more modern, dynamic Superstrat.


The guitar here features a one piece English Ash body with a natural finish and contrasting grain filler, which really defines the grain in this lovely piece of wood which is also nice and lightweight.


The comfortable Maple neck features an attractive 22 fret Kingwood fingerboard displaying a range of different colours. The headstock will be instantly recognisable from other models in our range and it really looks at home with this body shape.


Hardware is taken care of by Gotoh and as you can see the guitar features a lot of Chrome! This gives the guitar a wonderfully understated look without ever looking “too much”,


Triple Bare Knuckle Cobra pickups give the guitar that classic sound, but being a little hotter than standard Strat pickups also help the guitar have a bit more edge to compliment it’s fresh modern look.

Semi Hollow Horizon MK II (above)


This Horizon MK II is fully chambered with only a small area internally for the bridge to be mounted on, the rest of the body is completely hollow. This gives a nice full, resonant tone and considerably reduces weight (7.5lbs), making it a great guitar for anyone with a bad shoulder/back.


The back of the body is a single piece of English Ash and the top an attractive single piece of Honduran Mahogany, featuring a crescent f hole.


The neck is Cuban Mahogany - an extremely rare wood to find these days, it’s exceptionally strong, dense and very stable which makes it the perfect neck wood. The neck has a slim profile and has quite a flat fretboard radius (20”) making it a very “fast” neck. For the fretboard we chose Brazilian Kingwood featuring both sapwood and heartwood as it looked harmonious with both the body and top wood.


On the hardware and electronics side of things we have triple Kent Armstrong hot single coil pickups with CTS pots (vol, tone, tone) and Gotoh tuners and bridge.
