The ESP E-II Eclipse DB is inarguably one of the coolest-looking guitars in the entire ESP offering. It starts with a great combination of Vintage Black finish and age-yellowed multi-binding with gold hardware. But the E-II Eclipse DB is more than a killer-looking instrument; it's also one of our finest-playing guitars. Powered by a set of EMG 60 (neck) and EMG 81 (bridge) pickups, it's ready for everything from deep and contemplative sounds to the most screaming, aggressive tones imaginable. A set-neck design, it's easy to get quickly up to the highest frets. It features a mahogany body with maple cap, a one=piece mahogany neck, and an ebony fingerboard with 22 extra-jumbo frets. The E-II Eclipse DB includes high-end components like Schaller Straplocks, Gotoh locking tuners, and a Gotoh TOM bridge and tailpiece. Like all instruments in our E-II Series, the Eclipse DB is made in Japan at ESP’s Tokyo factory. Includes hardshell case.

thanks for the suggestion

I bought this guitar since some months and it's a very good guitar to play!

Only "issue" i have a fret buzz on the first lower string E at the first fret... truss rod is well , action of the chords is ok not too low...Strin gauge it's the same than original 10/46

Have you an idea? known problem ?




Carl N.

Without actually seeing the guitar it would be hard to pinpoint as it could be a myriad of things.  First recommendation would be to setup the instrument, if you need further assistance you can contact our service department at customerservice@espguitars.com


Thinking about pulling the trigger on this one.  I've heard the neck is similar to a 60s style Gibson Les Paul, not as fat as a 50s.  What is the thickness of the body?  Is it comparable to a Gibson Les Paul, or thinner?  I've had a Les Paul Lite but couldn't get passed the super thin body.  Other than that, the guitar looks amazing.

Carl N.

Neck will be a thin u 20-22mm and the body is about 50mm so not a full thickness body


First of all, thank you, Carl.  It seems then that the ESP is about 1-inch thinner than a Gibson LP.  It also seems the ESP is somewhere between a Les Paul Classic Lite and a Les Paul.  If you own this particular guitar, what are your thoughts on it?  How does it play?  How is the tone? Etc?  The guitar below was the old LP that I had to sell during hard times.

Hey guys, does anyone know if new E-II models are going to be announced this year?



Carl N.

Nothing planned at the moment

Hi Todd, 


Any plans to release the VB with the full access heel joint or the coil split EMGs? Love the look of the guitar, but it'd be awesome to have these features available in the future versions. Vintage look, modern features.



Todd B. ESP

Hi Steven, You make some great points and I agree with you. However I don't think that we will change this model to set thru heel joint at this time. Split coil EMG's might be used in more models soon. Have you tried the new EMG 57/66 TW set?
