(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.

If i would change the floyd rose would I need to get a r3 nut or which one?

if you have any questions you may reach out to our customer service team at or

Long time Charvel user.  Bought the Eclipse 87 NT turquoise as it was the spec I wanted.  Great guitar. Love some more of these in the line.  Turquoise or even Pearl Pink.  
and like others have said, a single coil one would be good.   Hot Rails set? 
Would your custom shop do a carve top TE like this?

Carl N.

The custom shop can make nearly any instrument you dream up.  Thanks for the recommendation though these models were spec'd in line with how they were produced in 1987, no single coils on these back then so none on them now.

Adrian M.

Lovely guitar, awesome sound.

Really sold on it.

Would love to get one with a Seymour Duncan Hot Rail single coil in the neck position (like the Mirage Deluxe '87').

That would be a dream configuration for me. One can only dream no?


Carl N.

Being a production model this will only come configured as shown, though our custom shop could handle nearly any request you throw at them

Adrian M.

Hi Carl N.

Thanks for your answer.

So i could ask for this model (ECLIPSE '87 in Peal white) in this exact configuration except the neck pickup (swapped for a Seymour Duncan Hot Rail single coil) to be built for me?

If so, how do I go about that please?




Levi M.

Would absolutely love this guitar in the turquoise finish. Any chance we'll get it soon? Or do I need to custom order?

Todd B. ESP

Hi Levi, currently we're not offering the Turquoise in this configuration. It's not available as an option but we could release it in the future. ESP Custom shop (custom order) is always an option but it's quite a bit more expensive.

Martin M.

I agree. If you guys were making the turquoise with a floyd i would of already bought one. Please do this colour with a floyd. Great work doing these 87 series guitars though. Awesome to see these classics back!

Eric W.

Yes please.
