ESP Eclipse Guitars
If you’re looking for a sleek, modern alternative to the classic singlecut guitar; an ESP Eclipse is the perfect choice.
ESP Eclipse Guitars
ESP/LTD Eclipse guitars closely adhere to the traditional LP-style design. Typically featuring Mahogany bodies and necks, these instruments project rich tones with plenty of low-end depth. With most models made with a set-neck construction too; these electric guitars sustain incredibly well. Although a lot of ESP Eclipse models come in stealthy matte black finishes, many also come with gorgeous Flamed or Quilted Maple tops for that premium look.
Instruments from the ESP Eclipse range are particularly popular with metal players, as they typically feature high-output EMG or Seymour Duncan pickups. Their powerful humbuckers are able to handle copious amounts of gain should you wish, but are versatile enough to produce crystal-clear tones with clean amp settings.
Certain ESP and LTD Eclipse guitars also come equipped with high-end, aftermarket hardware appointments. For example, selected models feature Evertune bridges that, as their name suggests, never go out of tune. Other models also come fitted with Floyd Rose double-locking tremolo systems, if crazy whammy bar acrobatics are your thing!
