    doubt about the ESP eclipse necks

    The neck of all eclipse are the same shape ? i mean eclipse II eclipse I and eclipse european version and USA version ? thickness nut etc ?

      I have 4 of them at the moment and they're all similar in feel and shape.  Two were imported from Australia (4 knob), one was from the US from before the switch to the 3 knob layout, and the last is a normal US model.  1 Eclipse II, 2 Eclipse I, 1 Eclipse I FT.

        do you have photos ? what do you like most ? do you hear the diference of full thickness body ? the sound of all of then is similar ?

          Well, I have three different pickup sets between the four guitars, so there's a bit of wiggle room, but they're all within the same vein.  There is a bit of difference between the FT (the black one) and the normal Eclipse satin purple one.  The satin cuts a bit more, the black is a bit fuller, but not so much that you'd notice unless you play them back to back.  That difference might be more noticible without the EMGs.

          The Het Set in the green one is getting swapped out as soon as a new set arrives.

          I couldn't pick a favorite between the group, but the purple one did track the lion's share of the newest album.

       I think they are all supposed to be the same 'Thin U' profile.

      bolton eclipse "custom" (eclipse i, sorta) floyd rose from 90s feels kinda different from eclipse ii tunamatic neck...still narrow nut, but diff profile i think


      miggt be the paint, my 90s model has just a clearcoat.....but unlikely. probably vary somewhat, like with ibanez - can still tellits no acoustic or gibson, but diff wizard necks stil vary nonetheless
