Rating and Reviews: ESP E-II ECQM Eclipse

Shred mightily on this quilted-maple-topped axe! It's loaded with heavy-duty EMG 81 and 60 pickups, and its set-neck design offers humongous, resonant tone.

Overall: Guitar came quick which is a huge plus. Well packaged. Came with a case that I wasn't expecting. Guitar came out ready to play and I couldn't be happier. Ordered from Zzounds before and it was equally as enjoyable.

Overall: I purchased this guitar 2 days ago and it arrived yesterday so shipping time was very discreet. I had it shipped directly to my guitar tech who threw some Ernie Ball cobalts and did a setup on it prior to me even seeing the guitar. I met with Vince after work and gave it a try and I was blown away. A little back story: I purchased this guitar because my main axe, a Gibson Les Paul Standard Premium Plus Model from 2002 was damaged and will be in the shop as I am a victim of the notorious Gibson neck break. I'm a professional touring musician and needed a replacement tour grade guitar. My Les Paul has the X-factor so upon its return I'm going to keep it as studio only guitar and my ESP Eclipse will now be my main axe. The finish on this guitar is killer, everyone that's seen it was instantly responsive. It's extremely playable and sounds killer. The neck feels like a 60's style neck but the fret board is a tiny bit wider that your average 60s and I didn't mind it at all. I will say that this is my first guitar with EMG pickups and it takes some getting used to as they are dynamically less responsive. I may swap out the EMG's down the road but this guitar overall is a workhorse. It sounds killer, plays well, and is a tour grade piece of equipment. I can take this on the road with me and not worry about it being in tune or being as sensitive to the elements. My Gibson's are absolutely amazing when it comes to tone, they really do have the x-factor, but when I'm out on the road I need consistent results and this guitar definitely delivers. I'm glad to add this to my collection and might even consider the EC-1000 evertune model as well! PS: I bought the blemished model because my intention was to take this guitar on the road with me. I inspected the guitar thoroughly and there were absolutely no scratches, nicks, or signs of use on it so I'm super extatic about the condition. It looks like it had never been touched.

Overall: ok so I bought one in blue because I liked the picture. got it home,plugged it in and was blown away. my Gibson les paul custom sits while I play on the esp's (yeah I bought two of them.) I have nothing bad to say about them.i did notice the picture of the blue one they showed here has the same serial number as the one I bought thats kinda cool. anyways I love them both very much.the other one I bought is an ltd ec1000 deluxe in the black cherry maple qt with abalone inlay all around the guitar is the most beautiful guitar I have.way cheaper than this esp eclipse ll but quality and playability are the same.the only difference is that the ltd is made in korea and the esp is made in japan.
