Any info about this 80s Eclipse tele?
Came across this beautiful The Eclipse Custom today and I had to buy it! It sounds awesome and it is of top notch quality! I haven’t found anyone like this anywhere on the Internet. There are ones in black, white and blue but not in this burst with maple top. Does anyone know if this couldbe a custom order, an early model or prototype? It has no serial number. The back of the headstock only says ”made in Japan”.
The black and white ones are the most common, they came in other colors also, and I have see few in subursts and transparents. A custom order, or a trade show / catalog build, or special run for a dealer are the most likely possibilities. The catalogs from the time period of not overly inclusive, and different markets received different guitars and had different catalogs, so there is also a chance it was standard production.
Notable users of these.
Izzy Stradlin had a white one, and Slash had a black one and a white one.
