The ESP E-II Eclipse’s body is crafted from mahogany and designed with comfortable contours, ensuring players receive the best playing experience. The mahogany tonewood delivers a soft tone, with plenty of grind and bite to keep it well-balanced and create plenty of depth. The guitar’s appealing high end and full, tight low end ensures the overall tonality remains thick and firm, offering plenty of dynamics to accommodate a variety of musical styles. The body is finished in a smooth black satin colour with multiple binding, creating a visually stunning and sophisticated appearance.
Mahogany Neck & Ebony Fingerboard
Featuring a mahogany neck to deliver a warm sonic punch, the Eclipse Evertune Guitar’s overall sound is opened up to create a mellow feel, an appealing tone, and excellent articulation. The addition of an ebony fingerboard helps to tighten up the neck’s tone, giving it a defined feel, excellent clarity, and a fast attack. The mahogany and ebony combination enhances the ESP with a sizzling, sparkling high end, a muscular controlled bass response, and offers extra presence in the lower mids.
Seymour Duncan Pegasus & Sentient Pickups
The ESP is equipped with a pair of Seymour Duncan pickups, offering the perfect blend of articulation and aggression suitable for versatile musicians. The Pegasus humbucker is set at the bridge to deliver a warm, balanced tone, with an excellent response and accurate pick attack to cut through live mixes. Built using alnico V magnets and custom wiring specs, the Pegasus pickup features a moderate output and offers a harmonically rich performance with a prominent midrange and a focused low-end. A sentient humbucker is placed at the bridge to provide a beautifully balanced and versatile tone, offering pristine cleans and fluid leads to suit a range of playing styles. Its articulate vintage output provides players with an incredibly dynamic response and wide harmonic range, making it ideal for low tunings.
Push/Pull Coil Tap
Also equipped with a push/pull pickup coil tap, the ESP E-II guitar offers a huge amount of tonal options to choose from, ensuring players can deliver the perfect sound for most situations. This function allows players to switch the pickup settings from a standard humbucking mode to a single coil, making it an extremely versatile guitar ideal for live situations when an array of tones are required.
The Evertune bridge uses a system of springs and physics to precisely balance the tension of the strings and provide the perfect intonation across the entire fingerboard. The dependable and maintenance free bridge keeps the ESP Eclipse in-tune forever, regardless of temperature or humidity changes, and also supports any tuning for the ultimate versatility.
