E-II ECLIPSE DB

VINTAGE BLACK

$1,799.00 with case

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.

Hola, adquirí una guitarra eclipse E II DB vintage negro y el sonido es increíble, pero las cuerdas están muy altas y si ajusto el alma o el puente, se presentan muchos trasteos. 

 

Esto es normal o la guitarra debe poderse ajustar a una altura de cuerdas más cómoda?

Todd B. ESP

Hello, It sounds like your neck may need to be adjusted. We recommend you take your instrument to a qualified guitar tech to perform an initial setup. Most likely if your strings are high that means that the neck has "bowed" and may need to be adjusted straighter which will bring the string height lower without adjusting the bridge. If you need more help please contact our customer service team at their email:  customerservice@espguitars.com . Or if you live outside the USA contact your dealer or distributor for more help.

Hi,

I am interested in the E-II Eclipse DB Vintage Black, I have searched around the internet and found that some have a flip battery compartment in the back of the guitar while others have to unscrew the backside. Is this because of model difference or just later model of the same guitar? If that is true, what other difference are between the old and newer models?

Great guitar and I have read numerous good reviews about it, consider purchasing it.

Hi Sean, We use the battery compartment which you are referring to only for models with active pickups. Is it possible that you are looking at photos of the same guitar with passive pickups? IF so, the passive version will not have this flip compartment. If you are looking at photos of the same model with active EMG pickups, then it is possible it is older, but we have been using this flip compartment for the battery for quite some time, maybe 10 years or so, but I don't have an exact date or year as to when we started to use them. There are not any other differences to mention. Anyway hope you get to try one of these some day!

Hi,

I intend to buy a E-II ECLIPSE DB VINTAGE and I would like to know if the fingerboard is made of real ebony or richlite.

Thanks

Tony

Todd B. ESP

Hi Tony, we do not use richlite. This uses real ebony.

Thank you Todd.

My best.

This is true example of one Eclipse guitar. This is how I imagine guitar when you say Eclipse.
Vintage black, satin, gold hardware, aged color binding.
