A new model from the ESP Eclipse series, with many professional features, but - as typical for LTD brand instruments - to be had for a very affordable price and featuring an unbelievably good price-quality relation.Finish: See Thru Black Cherry, with chrome hardware. Body: Basswood, with an intensively quilted maple top. The top is of a really rare, perfect, exceptional 3D-quality! (s. pictures). Some other big guitar manufacturers would probably ask more that the cost of this complete guitar, alone as an upcharge for a top of a comparable quality.Neck: Mahogany. "Thin U" neck profile. 24 XJ jumbo frets for fast playing and easy string bending. Bolt-on neck construction. This enables a fast, precise attack, along with a full, "fat" tone.Scale: 24.75" (like Gibson Les Paul, SG, Explorer etc., i.e. a 2 cm shorter scale than for instance a Stratocaster, resulting in better playability even with thicker string gauges).Fretboard: Rosewood, with „Dot“ inlays. A discreet but very noble looking instrument!Headstock: ESP Eclipse/Viper style, matching the body color.Tuners: Orig. ESP.Bridge: Non-tremolo, Tune-o-matic with stoptail. Lots of sustain and helps to stay in tune, as well.Nut: 42 mm (standard).Pickups: 2x ESP LH-150 humbuckers. This pickup combination is versatile, provides enough gain, even for aggressive sounds, fits well for both standard and lower tunings and is very quiet.Alternatively, upon request of the purchaser, we can also perform a professional installation of a different pickup combination, e.g. any DiMarzio, EMG or Seymour Duncan etc. (Very fair prices per pickup swap). Furthermore, we offer installation of active boost and EQ circuits like EMG Afterburner, PA-2, SPC, RPC, VMC, EXG etc. Please ask for details if interested.Electronics: 2x volume & 1x tone knob. 3-way-switch.Absolutely outstanding quality of selected woods, craftmanship, handling and sound! The overall manufacturing quality is easily comparable with many ESP models which usually cost 2 to 4 times more than this instrument, though.ESP Ltd guitars come from factory without a case or a gigbag. However, we offer the optional, hard to find, original (!) ESP Eclipse/EC Series formfit hardcase for a very special price of only 109.- EUR (instead of 169.- EUR when sold separately). This special offer is only valid in connection with the purchase of the above guitar, and is subject to stock availability, please inquire.
