E-II ECLIPSE BB

BLACK SATIN

$1,899.00 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.

Any E-ll Eclipses with Floyd Roses in the future?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Preston, There are currently no plans but it's possible we will offer an ECLIPSE FR in the future. Thanks for letting us know what you're interested in.

Hello,

 

I was wondering if anyone can tell me the differences between this (Black Satin BB) vs the Vintage Black DB. I understand that the DB is double bound with gold hardware but I also see that the the neck on the DB is set neck where as this one is Set-Thru.  Is there a tonal difference between these two models?

Also, is this model (or DB version) available in the full thickness?

 

Thanks!

Hi EM, The differences are mostly visual. the binding on the Black Satin model is painted on (Bold BInding) with silver over the regular binding. It does not have binding on the back of body. And it has a set thru neck heel which has a smooth "neck thru" feel. THe Vintage Black is set neck with a traditional heel and binding on the back of body as well. Other than that they are basically the same spec. Sound shouldn't be any different.  These are not available in the Full Thickness version. Currently the only Full Thickness model is the Flame Maple top Eclipse with Black Natural Burst.

Thanks for the reply Todd!

Sure!

Seems like there are several models of the Black Satin version. One with chrome hardware and one with black hardware. I've ordered a chrome one in december, just received a black hardware one.. Is there any chance to get the good one soon ?

Best regards

Todd B. ESP

Hi MiKL, not sure what your question is here. Please contact your dealer or our sales department (whoever you purchased your guitar from). They should be able to help you. This model is coming with chrome hardware.

Hi Todd. Already done that while received my full black hardware one.. thus wondering where does this model come from. Nevertheless, sounds like a Japan model only

vs

https://espguitars.co.jp/product/6746/

Ordered the first one but received the second one.. without even doubting that the second doesn't even exist on espguitars.com... sad :(

The part numbering is quite confusing but anyway, I have to wait for another couple of month the get the right one.. and my local dealer can't do anything between the importer and ESP japan.

Hi MiKL, Thanks for sending more details. After checking into this, we did used to sell an E-II ECLIPSE BLKS w/ EMG and Black hardware. That model was discontinued from our line 2 years ago. So it looks like you purchased that model which is not currently on our site.

The current model we sell is the E-II ECLIPSE BB (Bold Binding) BLKS w/ EMG and Chrome hardware. I'm not sure you purchased it from, can you let us know? It's possible that the dealer listed the wrong model or picture and that's why you got the wrong model. Either way, hope you can get the one you wanted although I know it's a bummer to have to wait for it.

Would be wonderful to have a LTD version of this stunning guitar.

Hey Alex, thanks for your suggestion and glad you like it.
