One of the best guitars I've ever owned, the evertune bridge is amazing, but them both together and you have the greatest guitar ever 100%


Got one of these a couple months ago. The fret ends and frets are perfect, and the guitar seems easy to play (good factory setup!). The Evertune bridge is amazing. The JB pickup is just great. Got a set of locking tuners (Gotoh) to put on it, yet.

No point in buying locking tuners if you have an Evertune on the guitar.

I did the same got 5he locking tuners also


I LOVE this guitar! Got it back in 2014/2015 I believe! Have never had an issue with it & has played like new since the day she was bought!

I do have a few questions now though after a few years of constant playing:

1. Can I buy new black pickup ring screws? Mine have become very rusty over the years. 
2. What are the exact pickup rings, because I’d like to get them in a new color... 

3. All of the ever time bridge screws & bolts are extremely rusty, is there a way to buy the replacements for those as well?


I have recorded all of my songs with my band (Mercury Down) using this guitar. I just purchased the Eclipse ‘87 nt to add to the collection! New songs otw!

Can’t wait to hear back from the ESP team! Thank you!!

Hi, glad to hear how you like your instrument and how well it has performed. This kind of question should be directed to customer service. Please contact them at . Although we do not sell parts, you should be able to find suitable replacements at parts companies such as and among others.


How much weight difference is there between this and a See Thru Green / See Thru Purple EC-1000 without Evertune? I read that this one is about 8.5lbs and some shops list the other "see thrus" with 9lbs. Is the ET model actually lighter?

Man so close to perfect! Color and finish is awesome, Evertune is awesome! But then the the pickups..while this is a great set of pickups I was hoping for the Fishman's. Any chance of an Evertune with Fishman's for 2021?

Carl N.

Nothing currently but we do produce other Fishman equipped Evertune models.  Thankfully pickup swapping is fairly easy so you could always change the pickups to your preferred type at your leisure
