BLACK SATIN

$2,149.00 with case

Created at the ESP facility in Japan, the E-II Eclipse-7 EverTune is a finely-crafted guitar that offers a unique and powerful set of components designed for serious musicians. It’s a 7-string guitar that features the EverTune constant tension bridge, a fully-mechanical system that keeps your guitar in tune in nearly every imaginable environment, and keeps your intonation perfect at every point on the fingerboard. The E-II Eclipse-7 EverTune also includes a set of phenomenal pickups: a Seymour Duncan Sentient in the neck position for wide dynamic range and excellent articulation, and an aggressive Seymour Duncan Pegasus in the bridge that's highly responsive and harmonically rich, with push-pull coil splitting. This guitar is a set-thru neck design at 25.5” scale with a mahogany body and maple cap, and a one-piece mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard. Top-tier components include a bone nut, Schaller straplocks, and Gotoh locking tuners. Available in Black Satin finish with multi-binding on the body, neck, and headstock. Includes ESP hardshell case.

I would buy this if it had stainless steel frets

I don't like the passive duncan pickups, I think it would look better with active style soapbar pickups, like fishman fluence, but that's not a deal breaker, can always change the pickups out myself, and both Fishman and EMG make active pickups that will fit in passive housings...

No SS frets _is_ a dealbreaker though :|

Hi Nick, Got it. Thanks for pointing that out. We will consider stainless steel frets in the future, however currently we only offer them on ESP USA and ESP Custom Shop models.

Christopher A., I must respectfully disagree.  "Killer" guitar finishes are like tattoos, you better be 500% sure that's what you want, both now and in the future. Neutral colors and finishes work in virtually all situations, they send a vibe of mature refinement, subtle confidence and professionalism.  I play in a Prog Metal band where image matters, and this guitar checks the "sinister and aggressive" box just perfectly with its Florentine cutaway and black hardware, yet I wouldn't hesitate to use it in a Classic Rock/Blues cover act, it looks and can be made to sound similar to the original axe of this shape. I would definitely take it to a Fusion session as well, 24 fast frets, versatile pickups, universal curb appeal, can't beat it. Of course custom finishes would be a cool option, but if there's only one color, I side with it being neutral.

Hi Ed, thanks for your comments. You make a lot of great points. A lot of times it's a neutral color that we may introduce first along with more color options later, but black or black satin is one of our best selling colors.

7 string, Pegasus/Sentient set, Evertune..... On an Eclipse... Holy hell! It's almost perfect! Just need to release a Tigereye sunburst and a see through black sunburst. Kinda disappointed that you guys went with the overused matte black finish. Other than the finish, she is almost perfect. Very tempted to get one just for the kit, regardless of the color.

Hi Christopher, thanks for your suggestions.

Nick K.

They went with black because it has an evertune bridge -- so it's not as likely to move as the other eclipse models would be
And most people who want an Evertune based guitar don't really care about the color 
At least it's satin black and not gloss

They should get points for that

Hi Nick, Thank you!

Aldo A. Fierro

Really love this one!

Note: It says 22XJ frets but actually there are 24 frets... right?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Aldo, thanks for pointing that out so we can correct it. Yes it is 24F.
