E-II ECLIPSE

BLUE NATURAL FADE

$1,999.00 with case

As one of the best-looking, best-sounding, and highest quality single cutaway guitars ever made, the E-II Eclipse is made in Japan at the ESP factory, and designed for serious players who rely on their guitars for professional-caliber stage and studio work. This guitar offers a collection of top-tier components, like a bone nut, Schaller Straplocks, Gotoh locking tuners, and a Gotoh TOM bridge and tailpiece. Perhaps most impressive is its set of EMG 57TW/66TW set for coil splitting each active pickup with individual push-pull controls on both volume knobs. Built with set-thru construction on a mahogany body and mahogany neck, the latest version of the E-II Eclipse is available in three styles: a Buckeye burl maple top in Blue Natural Fade finish; a flamed maple top in Black Natural Burst; and a maple-capped Snow White Satin finish. All E-II Eclipse models offer high-end design features like multi-binding on the body, neck, and matching headstock, and include an ESP hardshell case.

Just got mine this week and love it!

Carl N.

glad you enjoy it

I apologize in advance of this is specified elsewhere and I just overlooked it, but does the new eclipse (or any E-II model) offer stainless steel frets?

Carl N.

Typically we will list this within the description and specifications.  If stainless steel isn't mentioned the frets will then be nickel/silver.

Hi I was wondering does this guitar have a buckeye top or is it a veener

Carl N.

This will have a plain maple cap under a burled maple veneer.  Hope this helps!

Hi. Can you tell me a little more about the figured tops on the E-II series Eclipses. Specifically how thick is the maple top? And the "Buckeye" veneer?

These are killer playing. Sounding. Stunning guitars anyway you cut it. Tons of value especially considering the electronics, hardware, and form fit case included. I own a 2019 USA (bought new) model. I have spent time with one of these E-II's and they are pretty freaking close to the feel and almost spot on matching the sound. Thank you!

Carl N.

Hey Mark, the tops are generally about 15mm.  Hope this helps!

Carl N.
