Definitely 90s.  I've never seen one like this, with the dot inlays, and set neck.  Most of the guitars I've seen from around this time were semi-hollow.  It may be early 90s, but I've never seen an Eclipse......MORE »

Can't typically order pre-wired sets for pickups because the position and distance between the pots vary between guitars.  The coil splitting is determined by the wires in the pickup, so there's no way to pre-wire for......MORE »

You'll need passive pickups of your choice, and a new volume and tone pot and the capacitor for the tone pot.  I typically go with 500 ohm pots for humbuckers, but there are many thoughts on the matter.  If you're......MORE »

Burstbucker 3 is pretty nice.  A bit dialed back, output wise, for what I like, but it's a nice, round sounding pickup.  I like the zebras in the guitar, but those bobbins look a bit pink compared to the nice......MORE »

Not sure what it is, but I've had that problem on many guitars with EMGs and that style of toggle switch.  Even on guitars I've replaced the switch.  Remelting the solder always seems to fix it.I can't say I've ever......MORE »

Resolder the connections to the switch.  I've had this problem on several guitars over the years.  Resoldering the switch fixes it.  In fact, there's an infamous video of Hetfield playing and having this exact......MORE »

The body design is slightly different, if I recall correctly.  Kirk's has a plug in the back to allow the guitar to be filled.  I'm not sure where this guitar is filled, but the fact that the front strap screw goes......MORE »

Welcome J_Mac.You are correct, it's an EXP.  The MX-II (commonly referred to as a MX250, though it was renamed in the late 90s) is set neck and the MX220 is a slightly different body and headstock shape.Three or four......MORE »
