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.

Been thinking about this guitar for a long time. But I’m not seeing anything about stainless steel frets. I love bends, and any guitar over 1000 should come with steel frets so I do not have to have a refret job after a few years.

thanks for the insight

I’m currently tossing up between a couple of ESP guitars. Does this have a multi piece neck or 1 piece? Some of the E-II specify it has a one piece, while others say just mahogany. I’d prefer the three piece neck if it’s available on done as I feel it handles my climate with less changes.

I own this guitar, and it's amazing! Just wondering what a good action height would be to set it at for standard tuning?

Finally got my first real MIJ ESP/E-II and this was it. I couldn't be happier, it kills. I don't mind the E-II branding, but has anyone thought of doing it script style like ESP and LTD logos? It'd fit in so perfectly!

Glad you enjoy it, thanks for the suggestion

Beautiful Guitar!  I just picked one up even though I already have an exceptional ESP USA Eclipse.

Carl N.

glad you're enjoying it!

Nice! How would you compare the two? How would you say that the USA version differs from the EII ?
