ECLIPSE '87
$1,099.00
(U.S. Only)

While ESP first got started in 1975 as a small repair shop in Tokyo, it was really toward the mid ‘80s when our guitars and basses grabbed the attention of players around the world. The LTD ’87 Series are faithful recreations of this set of instruments from ESP’s 1987 catalog. Unlike the current single-cutaway Eclipse shape, the original ESP Eclipse was based on the TE archtop shape,  which is the basis of the LTD Eclipse ’87. This guitar offers neck-thru-body construction with a mahogany body and three-piece maple neck. The ’87 Series Eclipse models offer a set of Seymour Duncan ’59 (neck) and JB (bridge) pickup set (with original style bobbins and a push-pull control to split the coils), and a Floyd Rose-1000 locking tremolo. Available in Black and Pearl White finishes.

Cool

Shawn M.

Should have used the original Kamikaze neck on that. Pity you charge 5 times the worth of a guitar to get what you want, though.

Carl N.

Thanks for sharing your opinion

Javier D.

Superb guitar. Is there a way I coud get this with different fret inlays? 

Carl N.

This would only be offered as shown.  Our custom shop could build this to nearly any specification though the cost would be highly elevated compared to LTD instruments.  Otherwise you could always commission an inlay artisan to modify this after purchase.

Many of us wish ESP would upgrade the look of their guitars via better inlay design. unfortunately, the only way to get better inlays is through custom or buying Schecter/Gibson or some boutique guitars.

Thrasher

Is the Floyd Rose floating or Dive Bomb only?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Thrasher, it is floating and has a recess cavity. Hope that helps!

Stephen H.

It is too bad the Eclipse'87 (with Floyd) did not come in a Turquoise finish.Still going to get the Black finish model especially with a legit Floyd.All the  87's look fabulous.

Carl N.

Understandable, I wish all of our guitars came in that turquoise
