The Horus is indeed an extraordinary instrument, a true modern day classic due to its phenomenal playability, unimpeded access to all 27 frets and the ability to take on a plethora of differing styles with ease.

The 20th Anniversary Horus-M3 embodies the pioneering attitude of its ancestors and further improves on it while making a bold statement with an eye-catching and stunning finish perfectly complimented by its gold hardware - functional beauty created to ensure that the audience's attentions are drawn to those who chose to wield it.

The M3 composite tonewood body construction

The M3 composite tonewood body construction consists of a central Maple section sandwiched between two Mahogany sides with the neck bolted directly to the Maple section. The result is a balanced sound with focused low frequencies and rich sustain.
