Player's Perspective

It doesn't get any better than this - we're stoked to bring you a flagship Japanese-made Original Series Eclipse Custom from our friends at ESP Guitars! This one comes in an absolutely mesmerizing Purple Peel finish. If you've ever seen the Marvel movie 'Dr. Strange', staring into the top on this guitar is akin to staring into the "Dark Dimension" - you can get lost in both just as easily!

Just like your favorite vintage 24.75" singlecut guitar, the neck and body resonate and sustain for days. The neck profile is very comfortable and just thick enough in all the right places, blending the best of vintage specification with ESP's contemporary design mentality. If you're a big bender, you're going to love the way this guitar plays. All kinds of legato can be pulled off with minimal effort and expressive vibrato is always at your fingertips.

Tonally, this guitar simply kills. The EMG James Hetfield signature pickups are brutal as you've come to expect from EMG active humbuckers, but have a certain old-school clarity and vibe as well - the visible pole pieces and passive-style design bring together the best of both worlds. They sound awesome!

The Eclipse is one of the most iconic ESP models there is, and this is the absolute top of the line offering.

Manufacturer's Description

All ESP Original Series instruments are hand-crafted by the world-renowned expert luthiers at the ESP Custom Shop in Japan. The Eclipse is one of the world’s most beloved guitars. It takes the traditional single-cutaway body shape and reimagines it for contemporary music performance styles. Built to the highest degree of detail, every millimeter of the ESP Eclipse Custom is designed to exceed the expectations of the world’s most discerning guitar players and musical instrument collectors. It offers set-neck construction with a mahogany body and maple cap, adjoined to a Honduran mahogany neck and ebony Fretboard with ESP flag inlays. Carefully-selected components on the ESP Eclipse Custom include a graphite nut, ESP strap locks, Gotoh locking tuners, a TonePros locking TOM bridge, and Gotoh tailpiece. Its sound is powered by a pair of EMG JH “Het Set” active pickups that offer the clarity and punch of a passive pickup along with tight attack and clean low end. Available in Andromeda II, Blue Liquid Metal, Purple Peel, and Silver Liquid Metal finishes. Includes high-quality hardshell ESP case.
