For a modern spin on a timeless design, consider the ESP E-II Eclipse. This forward-looking single-cut’s mahogany-on-mahogany construction, paired with its deluxe satin-finished maple body cap, gives the E-II Eclipse the same tonal foundation as some of the most sought-after guitars in rock history — not to mention looks that kill. Top-notch Gotoh locking tuners, a Gotoh TOM bridge/tailpiece, and Schaller Straplocks provide the pro performance you can count on, day in, day out.
Top-shelf tonewood construction
The warmth and resonance of mahogany are at the centre of some of the most legendary rock guitar tones of all time. ESP topped the E-II Eclipse’s mahogany body with a tone-rich maple cap for added bite, clarity, and sustain. The result is an incredibly thick tone with a bold, edgy character. This guitar’s Thin “U” mahogany neck is topped with an ebony fingerboard for warmth, sustain, articulation, and attitude, all at the same time.
Coil-split EMGs take the classic tone to new heights
The beautiful thing about this E-II Eclipse’s active EMG humbuckers is the complete range of tone they give you. From modern humbucker crunch to smooth single-coil soul, EMG’s coil-split 57TW bridge and 66TW neck pickups are characterized by a more vintage-style tone than other EMG designs. Active electronics add headroom and clarity for when you do need to kick it up a notch. For tones that can be classic and modern at the same time, the E-II Eclipse’s EMG 57TW and 66TW make for a winning combination.
Eclipse body style blends classic looks with modern performance
Nothing screams hard rock like ESP’s timeless Eclipse body style. The extra mass of this single-cutaway design gives the E-II Eclipse truly epic sustain, whereas its slightly arched top provides you with comfortable hand positioning, no matter your picking style. Add to that a super-sharp cutaway, which gives you open access to upper frets, and with the E-II Eclipse, you’re totally ready to shred.
Top-notch quality is affordable with ESP’s E-II series
Bridging the gap between the custom shop and mass production guitars, the ESP E-II line brings you Japanese-made guitars at affordable prices. These premium guitars are made in the same factory as ESP guitars by the same luthiers.
