Formerly called “ESP Standard”, all ESP E-II instruments are created at our ESP factory in Tokyo, Japan, and are designed for professional players who accept no compromises in tone, feel, or reliability for their guitars and basses. Of the thousands and thousands of Eclipse guitars ESP has created, few are as outstanding — or eye-grabbing — as the ESP E-II Eclipse DB in Purple Sparkle finish. It starts with set-neck construction of its maple-capped mahogany body and thin U-shaped mahogany neck with ebony fingerboard. It continues with extra-thick white binding on the body, neck and headstock. Next, add high-end components like a bone nut, Schaller straplock, Gotoh locking tuners, and a Gotoh TOM bridge and tailpiece. Then get the sound you want from a set of EMG 66 (neck) and EMG 57 (bridge) active pickups. Ready for serious professional use on stage or in the studio, the E-II Eclipse-DB includes an ESP hardshell form-fitting case.
