    I've been searching for a 5 string ESP Horizon II for years,and I finally found one here in Italy!!!! :hyper:
    Got it yesterday,was in pretty rough shape,so I cleaned it,adjusted the intonation and the action,cleaned all the cavities,painted a couple dents,oiled the freatboard and the frets,fastened the tuners and...well that's it :D

    Yeah I said the same thing about 2. . .and then 3. . .well 4 was definitely enough. . .until I found my fretless. . .and who can say they have a bass collection without one Pbass. But seriously 6 will be enough. . .:ninja:
     
  7. It is? Damn, I need to sell some then.

    Seriously though, that is one nice looking bass. I love the contouring on the body.

    Nice find. It's fun to finally find a bass for which you have been looking.

    As for the GAS to rest...

    Just remember that GAS cannot be cured.

    Yours is just in remission ;)

    Ahah got the point guys,but I'll have to keep it down from now on
     
  16. That's one hell of a sexy bass. Maybe GAS is like flu: you're cured, but you gave it to everyone else. Congrats on the bass.

    "Knock Knock."
    "Who's there?"
    "GAS."
    "GAS who?"
    "The same GAS that's always knocking and never goes away that you new ESP will never fix."


    "... Oh ... That GAS. You're right, come on back in."

    Purple basses rule!

    GAS never completely goes away. You eventually want something else. It is like having too much pizza - some day you still order another.

    Hmm - that color might work for the custom Moser I am having built..... Except on mahogany I will need a silver undercoat or something...
