I just got one of these today. This was my 8th ESP 8 string. I have the green EC-1000 in High school and TBH its the only guitar I have ever missed, but I just really don't do 6 or 7 string anymore. This guitar is beautiful and allowed me to have my nostalgia and 8 strings too!! I really do wish you guys would talk to evertune about being able to put some bigger string gauges to. Also the pickups could have been better. Would LOVE to see one of these with some Fishman Classic 8s!! Otherwise the finish is perfect. The Body is amazing. The neck is smooth and sexy. People should stop complaining about the weight. Its not that heavy. Great job modernizing a classic guys!! I can't wait for my next ESP guitar!!! Only way this is leaving my collection is out of my cold dead hands.

String gauge preference is very subjective and we use a common 9-65 gauge set from the factory as it is a good basis for most players.  Thicker gauges could always be used but would require setting up the instrument with those gauges.

Really wish there was a left handed version of this out there to buy. 

Carl N.

Hey Port,  I know it's tough, you'll want to check out these two dealers of ours.  They specialize in left handed instruments.

So the bridge hole for the top string will not fit anything bigger than a 65 gauge. I tune in drop E, so I’m going to need a bigger gauge. Advice?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Travis, I would try the 65 gauge first and see how it feels. IF it doesn't work for you, next step would be to contact Evertune and ask for their recommendation. They do make high tension saddle modules for different gauges of strings which may be necessary for larger strings. However currently I do not know if they offer a larger hole option but I will find out soon.

Todd B. ESP

Hi Travis, please contact Cosmos at Evertune if you need any help. He told me their saddles should fit up to a .074 gauge and more recently then upped the size to .085.

What is the "actual" scale length on this?

Shaun A.

26.5", 13-ish from nut to to center of 12th fret. 26+ish from nut to bridge.

Todd B. ESP

Hi BBrowning85, Thanks for pointing this out. Looks like our spec listed was incorrect. The correct scale length is 26.5" Baritone scale (thanks Shawn A. for pointing that out). We'll update our spec on our product page.

How much do these beasts weigh? A six string single cut is heavy let alone an eight? 

Todd B. ESP

Hi Andrew, this model weighs about 10.5lbs. Keep in mind that weights vary so it could be slightly more than that sometimes. our 6 string Eclipses usually are around 9.5lbs or less.
