E-II ECLIPSE FULL THICKNESS

BLACK NATURAL BURST

$1,899.00 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 traditional full thickness 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.

I just got mine and its beautiful!!

Todd B. ESP

Hi Mario, wow! great! Glad you like it!!

Nicola V.

Are these EMG noiseless even when splitted in "single coil" mode? Thks

Todd B. ESP

Hi Nicola, great question! Yes, EMG's single coil toil will still be "hum cancelling".

Steven S.

How thick is the maple top?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Steven, The full thickness body is 60mm thick. There is a plain maple cap under the veneer that is 15mm thick. The flamed maple veneer on top is standard veneer thickness of less than 1mm. And the mahogany body is 45mm. hope that helps.

Steven S.

Are all E-II figured tops veneers?

Todd B. ESP

Hi STeven, yes the E-II's all use veneers for figured tops.

Everything about this guitar is completely stunning.  Traditions are great and all but ESP has built its brand by taking chances.  They're stepping out of the shadows of traditional builders by breaking the rules.  This guitar is the epitome of that idea.  It's loyal to traditions in that its full thickness but built for modern players who want ergonomic playing with the carved neck heel joint and belly cut.  Not to mention the finish looks awesome too.  It's a completely new take on a traditional single cut flame maple top.   Awesome.  Just plain awesome.   She will be mine.  Oh yes, she will be mine.

Hey Armando, thank you for your remarks. It's nice to hear how much you like your design and we hope you can get one of these guitars soon.

This is the smartest design in single cut guitars. There's nothing about this I would change and now have my sights set on this beast. That burst is beautiful.

Todd B. ESP

Hi Christopher, Thanks for your comments. Glad to hear you like this design and hope you can try one out!
