E-II ECLIPSE DB

RED SPARKLE

$1,899.00 with case

Formerly called “ESP Standard”, all ESP E-II instruments are created at our ESP factory in Tokyo, Japan, and are designed for professional players who accept no compromises in tone, feel, or reliability for their guitars and basses. Of the thousands and thousands of Eclipse guitars ESP has created, few are as outstanding — or eye-grabbing — as the ESP E-II Eclipse DB in Red Sparkle finish. It starts with set-neck construction of its maple-capped mahogany body and thin U-shaped mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard. It continues with extra-thick white binding on the body, neck and headstock. Next, add high-end components like a bone nut, Schaller straplock, Gotoh locking tuners, and a Gotoh TOM bridge and tailpiece. Then get the sound you want from a set of EMG 66 (neck) and EMG 57 (bridge) active pickups. Ready for serious professional use on stage or in the studio, the E-II Eclipse-DB includes an ESP hardshell form-fitting case.

Todd...did get the guitar and the specs say Thin U for the neck......ALL I play is ESP and the neck is NOT as thin as ANY of my other guitars...is there a reason why...my friend played my 2011 Standard Series M-I and he said the neck on the E-II was wider.....guess I gotta buy the LTD models and do upgrades myself.....I PLAY ESP because I LOVE THE thin necks.....and ALSO the Black Metal LTD's are SO KILLER......

Hi Michael, Thanks for letting us know about this. I will pass your comments to our factory. The only thing I think is a possibility here is that sparkle finishes require very thick paint compared to a regular type of paint job. To fill the gaps between the sparkle flakes, the top coat has to be built up and sanded flat. This may add a noticeable amount of paint, even though the internal neck specs (the wood) are the same as our standard Thin U.

I would like to order this guitar from my dealer.....are they available yet Todd??????

Todd B. ESP

Hi Michael, Yes these should be available but we cannot say which dealer has available stock. The best thing to do is reach out to the dealer of your choice and find out if they have in stock or how long it will take to get from ESP. There are times throughout the year where we may be back ordered on this model and some others so it has taken a little longer than we would like to get them into your hands. But we have been delivering all orders in the order they were received. Hope this helps.

Please make this red sparkle and purple sparkle in full thickness and ultra access neck joint instead of the old school block

Todd B. ESP

Hi Gerald, thanks for your suggestions.

Daniel D.

Will this one have coil splitting like the other new ones? 

Todd B. ESP

Hi Daniel, Existing models have not been changed but could be changed later this year.

Daniel D.

When will this become available? I need one now. 

Todd B. ESP

Hi Daniel, These have been backordered recently. It depends on whether you have an existing order with one of our dealers currently or not. Whenever we get our future shipments, they will be used to fill any of our dealer backorders first. I recommend getting one on order with one of our dealers and asking them for future availability. It should be something you can get your hands on within the next couple months.
