E-II ECLIPSE BB

BLACK SATIN

$1,999.00 with case

In guitar design, details matter. It can be the small things that helps you and your instrument stand out in a crowded field. The ESP E-II Eclipse BB accomplishes this with great-looking thick silver-painted binding on its Black Satin finish. This guitar is more than good looking, though; it offers a set-thru neck joint for excellent playability, and an EMG 60/81 Brushed Chrome pickup set. High-end components on the E-II Eclipse BB include Schaller Straplocks, Gotoh locking tuners, and a Gotoh TOM bridge and tailpiece. Like all instruments in our E-II Series, the Eclipse BB is made in Japan at ESP’s Tokyo factory. Includes hardshell case.

Robbie v.

Are you guys planning an LTD EC-1000 version of this one?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Robbie, We are not planning at this time but thanks for your suggestion. We do appreciate your feedback!

Stephane L.

Thank you again for your response. We have a E-II ECLIPSE BB Purple Sparkle and the fret board/neck is black on it, I see it as black anyway. Is this also dark brown or is it actually black? 

if I can get the E-II Eclipse Black Satin with the same color of fret board/neck as the fret board/neck on my Purple Sparkle I’m buying it? 

So are they the same or different, please advise.   

Carl N.

Stephane, the spec for both is ebony, though no two pieces are ever going to look the same they will typically be the darkest wood available for fingerboards without dying them.  I cannot say whichever instrument you buy will have the darkest fingerboard, it would be best for you to visit a dealer to see them in person before purchase if you are that particular about the color of your fingerboard.

Stephane L.

Thank you for your reply, is there a black satin guitar that has a black fret board/neck?

Carl N.

Hey Stephane, unless artificially dyed there will be no completely black fingerboards.  Most ebony is the darkest shade of brown, though they do look black in most lighting.

Stephane L.

What colour is the fret board/neck, black or dark brown?

Carl N.

Hey Stephane, this will be ebony, so a very dark brown.

RAFAEL C.

hello, which is better between the E-II ECLIPSE BB and the E-II ECLIPSE EVERTUNE models

Carl N.

Hey Rafael, either instrument will be of the same quality so it'll depend on the individual player's preferences as to which instrument they would be more comfortable with.
