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 Dunlop Straploks, 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.

Are the frets on E-II eclipses, nickel or stainless steel? 

Todd B. ESP

Hi, the frets are standard nickel silver.

With all black hardware this guitar would be even more beautiful.

Totally!! And please please do this colour in the set-thru neck shape!! That is the most comfortable neck I’ve ever played on an LP style.

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

Hey David,
same here. I guess nearly all of these models have that issue and it's not done with a simple setup - forget it! I worked at a guitar store and a customers guitar, my own and a guitar from another shop had the exact same problem. The ESP Service here in Germany sucks so bad that after nearly two years, with a broken heart, I decided to give mine back. Nobody from the ESP distribution Germany - Sound Service - was able to fix it. And without replacing the nut (what would be a shame because of the then damaged binding) no 3rd party luthier could help me.
Wasn't expecting that kind of tragedy for nearly 2k. The "reclamation" lasted for 6 month with a lot of "you're the problem, not the guitar".
I was really pissed and because of this experience I will never ever buy an ESP (at least in Germany) again.
It's a shame, otherwise the guitar would be perfect.

Best wishes
