E-II ECLIPSE EVERTUNE

BLACK SATIN

$1,999.00 with case

Created at the ESP facility in Tokyo, Japan, the ESP E-II Series is our highest-quality factory-produced instrument collection. With the E-II Eclipse EverTune, you get one of the most finely-crafted guitars imaginable, with a unique set of components designed for serious musicians. It features the EverTune constant tension bridge, a fully-mechanical system that keeps your guitar in tune in nearly every imaginable environment, and keeps your intonation perfect at every point on the fingerboard. The E-II Eclipse EverTune also includes a set of phenomenal pickups: a Seymour Duncan Sentient in the neck position for wide dynamic range and excellent articulation, and an aggressive Seymour Duncan Pegasus in the bridge that's highly responsive and harmonically rich. The E-II Eclipse EverTune is a set-thru neck design, with a mahogany body, a one-piece mahogany neck, and an ebony fingerboard with 22 extra-jumbo frets. Top-tier components include a Schaller straplock, Gotoh locking tuners, and a graphite nut. Available in Black Satin finish with multiple binding on the body, neck, and headstock. Includes hardshell case.

Hi ESP - I already have one E-II Eclipse but really wish you had gone ahead with the black satin, Evertune and the Fishman Fluence pickups... please consider doing this, I promise to buy one!

Carl N.

Hey Michael, thank you for your support and suggestions.  We try and produce as many differently configured instruments as we can to please all of our players but as you can image, every player is different and prefers a differently appointed instrument.  We'll take your suggestions into consideration when planning new models.

Hi there - on some guitar retail sites, they show a separate battery case on the back of the guitar.  The photos above do not show that.  Is there a difference in the model years?!

 

Thanks!

Todd B. ESP

Hi billybub, When these were first introduced, our factory had planned to release them with Fishman pickups, but then we changed to Duncan pickups. The ones you are seeing are probably from the early models before we officially released the final product with Duncans.

Thanks Todd.  Guitar Center confirmed the passive pickups.  If helpful here’s the website with the photos - they should probably update with the proper “back” view as I’m sure I’m not the only one who was confused!

Hi billybub, thanks very much for confirming this and sending the link. We'll see if we can help them to update their photos to avoid more confusion. Thanks again for pointing this out to us!

This is a beautiful guitar, but is there Any chance this same model could be offered with Chrome Hardware (Chrome Evertune Bridge, Chrome Tuners, Chrome Knobs) And Seymour Duncan JB Bridge and '59 Neck (or Pearly Gates Neck) with Chrome Covers? That would be a great 'classic' look option for this guitar!! 

Also, as some others have requested, I'd love to see Stainless Steel Frets offered on these models too. 

Todd B. ESP

Hi Scotty, Thanks for your suggestions. These options are currently not available but they are good suggestions and we appreciate you letting us know what you are looking for in a guitar.

I own a E-II Evertune Eclipse and a white E-II Eclipse with standard bridge. Both loaded with Emg 81/85's.

Are there any plans to release a E-II Evertune Eclipse in white or any other finishes or do I have to go custom?

 

Todd B. ESP

Hi geoff, Thanks for sharing this with us. Although there is no plan at this time , it could be something we would consider releasing in the future. Sounds like the Evertune is your bridge of choice? That's great to hear. Thanks for your suggestions.

Can you guys please stop using nickel frets?  Stainless frets have been out for how long now?  Parker used them since the early 90s.  If people spend almost two grand on a guitar they shouldn’t have to worry about it needing a level / crown or re-fret (costing even more!) in just a few years.  SS frets last a heck of a lot longer.  Do you even offer SS frets on the USA models?

Todd B. ESP

HI Nick, Your points are well noted. Thank you for sharing them here. Yes we do offer SS frets on the ESP USA line, in fact they are all built 100% now with SS frets. Although we have not incorporated SS frets into our other models yet, it's quite likely that we will in the future. Thanks for bringing this up.
