Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (6 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "The specs are wrong but the guitar rocks!"
Overall: I recently bought a Matt Heafy Les Paul and I am not sure if I got a "bad batch" or what but it is the best sounding guitar I have ever played on. Especially for $699. That guitar made my 2 other Schecter C's, ESP EC-1000, and PRS sound worthless. So I bought the Eclipse II thinking that it would compete, as the other guitars just weren't that great anymore even with new pickups, tuneups, and all. And.... the Eclipse II sounded just like the ESP EC-1000, if not worse. It was twice the money and I couldn't justify making any changes or upgrades to it to make it sound better when I could just save $800 and get another EC-1000 and make is sound sick so I sent it back. But this see through black came up for $1,000 and I had to jump on it. I was skeptical but willing to give it a shot. I am so glad I did. For $1000 I couldn't have scored a better guitar, except the Matt Heafy but now I have two incredible guitars. Do yourself a favor and buy one. They are sick. Side note: I don't know about the other guitars but this see-through black does not have Seymour Duncan pickups, as any average guitarist would know. It has an EMG 66 in the neck and EMG 57 in the bridge. It is also a 24 fret guitar. Not 22. I don't remember what zZounds said that scale was but it is a 24.75" scale. The shipping and logistics for this guitar was an absolute nightmare but after playing this for 30 mins I would do it again.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "ESP LTD Eclispe 1 See through Black"
Overall: I played a ton of guitars before I bought this one. played the Les Pauls and loved their tone but didnt like the fact that you pay so much for a guitar thats not set up at all and seems like the quality control is missing. The ESP was set up great right out of the gate and played great. Another thing I was worried about was the tone and sound with the EMG pups. They are EMG's take on a more vintage tone/sound and they hit it pretty well. These are really hot pups due to them being an active pup and at the same time still have those warm tones you would get from a les paul. Switch to the bridge pup (EMG 66) and roll back the tone and vol. a bit and you get a nice blues/jazz sound. Turn the volume up and get more bite and great sustain. The neck pup (EMG 57) will give you an all out high gain assault that EMG's normally are known for. This guitar is very well made with emphasis on quality and is very versatle for different playing styles. I would highly reccomend!
