E-II ECLIPSE

SNOW WHITE SATIN

$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 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 bought this guitar and the fretboard has a light brown streak under the high e from the 1st fret to the 4th. It also has a light brown spot in the middle of the 4th fret. Is this normal? Every E-II I have ever had has had a very uniformly black polished fretboard. I'm not loving the light brown spots.

Hey Pitdog, not all pieces of wood are the same and with ebony it is natural for this to have some lighter patterns within the grain.  Nothing really to cause concern but if you're obsessive about them all being the same maybe speak with the dealer you bought this from.

Hi, 

I purchased this guitar two months ago now, is there a way to polish the white satin finish without making it glossy? Is there any specific product?How fast is it going to yellow up playing it EVERY day? Thank you for the amazing guitar! 

 

Carl N.

Hey Tomaso, not sure you do want to polish the guitar as that would make it glossy.    If you're just trying to clean it then a micro cloth works great but you have to keep in mind the pressure you are using while cleaning as the finish can become shiny after using too much pressure.  As for yellowing, this is more of a concern for nitrocellulose finished instruments but those finished with polyurethane, like ours, don't experience this as harshly.  You'll want to keep it from sitting in direct sunlight for extended periods of time and you'll want to make sure you're not sweating all over it.  Hope this helps, enjoy your new E-II!

If I could make a couple small suggestions/requests for future models...this exact same guitar with a vintage white cream finish, and either full thickness or with a floyd rose.  

 

Even without the floyd or full thickness, this exact model with vintage white and gold hardware would be amazing.  

Carl N.

Hey Cody, thanks again for another great recommendation.  Don't forget, you can always order an ESP custom if there is a specific build you want.

Hey Todd how are ya sir hope all is well... quick question..is this model the satin white E-ll going to be heading to zzsounds or american music anytime soon???? 

Todd B. ESP

Hi ajsmashmelive, Sorry I can't provide that info here, but you could contact them directly if you have one on order with them.

Nicola V.

Hi, what is normally the weight of the full thickness and the standard thickness one? Are both models chambered? Thanks

Todd B. ESP

Hi  Nicola, the weight will vary from guitar to guitar depending on each piece of wood. However, the average or typical weight should be approximately 8lbs for the standard E-II Eclipse and a little more than 9lbs for the E-II Full Thickness Eclipse. Hope that helps.
