ESP USA Eclipse in semi-hollow form and black cherry finish! The satin neck feels incredible, much easier to glide up and down than gloss. Plus, the “f” hole (although not “f”-shaped) makes it excellent for playing acoustically as well. I got this guitar recently to be my modern LP-style guitar—with stainless steel frets, belly contour, improved upper neck access, satin neck, etc.—and it excels at this. I have too many LP-style guitars at this point though and am looking at branching out now! It’s tough to part with this for how amazing the build quality is. The photos should capture just how well-built it is. Binding is perfect, no overspray, frets are beautifully crowned and leveled. Additionally, this eclipse is seriously lightweight. I’m used to my 10-pound les paul custom and was almost thrown off by how balanced and ergonomic the ESP eclipse is in comparison! Fortunately (to me, at least), the USA eclipses retain the same full thickness of a typical Gibson les paul, if that matters to you.
On a completely aesthetic note, the open-grain mahogany looks amazing in person, and the mother of pearl inlays on this are the most active and chatoyant that I’ve ever seen on any of my guitars!
Here is the original description/specs for the guitar:
Crafted at ESP’s USA facility in Southern California, the USA Eclipse Semi-Hollow takes the classic single-cutaway design of the ESP Eclipse and offers it in a classy semi-hollow body version. Designed for players of all music genres who accept no compromise in the looks, feel, and sonic performance of their guitars, the USA Eclipse Semi-Hollow is available with a wide variety of solid color finishes, as well as optional open-grain mahogany, flamed maple, and quilted maple tops with gloss and satin translucent finishes to allow the figured wood grain to be highlighted. These guitars offer smooth set-thru construction at classic 24.75” scale, with a three-piece thin U-shaped three-piece mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard with 22 extra-jumbo Jescar stainless steel frets and mother-of-pearl split-flag inlays.
Only the best components and hardware were chosen for the USA Eclipse Semi-Hollow, including Sperzel Trim-Lok tuners, TonePros locking TOM bridge and tailpiece, Dunlop Straploks, and a bone nut. This USA Eclipse Semi-Hollow is offered with the Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro set with a push-pull coil split control. The USA Eclipse Semi-Hollow includes a high-quality ESP USA form-fitting hard shell case.
