For sale is a rare ESP Eclipse II in see thru black cherry. The 4 knob “Les Paul” style design was discontinued long ago, making these guitars quite sought after. Most ESP’s for sale will be the 3 knob version. This guitar is fantastic, and unfortunately due to personal circumstances I need to sell it.
The guitar is in excellent condition, with only minor nicks and scratches as expected from a guitar that is 16 years old. However, for its age it is in great condition. I have tried to highlight some of the more noticeable scratches in the photos. The top tip of the headstock has some finish chipped but is purely superficial. The guitar is structurally solid and has no breaks or repairs.
The body is mahogany, with a quilted maple top. The neck is a set neck in mahogany, and actually has some figure to it in the light. The frets are fantastic extra jumbo ones that make bending a breeze. The guitar recently had a fret job so it plays wonderful in all positions.
The pickups have been upgraded to a Seymour Duncan Sentient / Nazgul set, which sound super tight and fantastic. Pots have therefore been changed to accomodate passive pickups. The original EMG 81 / 81 set can be included (along with the wiring harness and original knobs) for an additional price. All electronics work with no issued. The pickups can be coil split with a push / pull knob installed on the top tone knob.
The action has been set low and truss rod works fine with no issues. The treble is around 1.5mm and bass at around 1.75mm. Neck relief is approximately 10 thousands of an inch. Currently strung with Ernie Ball Paradigms tuned to E standard.
The original bridge was worn out however an exact Gotoh replacement has been installed. The original parts are included in the sale. Comes in original fitted hard case in good condition. More photos are available on request.
It’s easy to see why this guitar is loved by so many professional musicians. It’s loud, punchy and feels amazing.
Pickup is preferred however shipping can be provided. I have shipped guitars all around Australia with no issues. For any international buyers, please contact me first for a more accurate shipping rate. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
