ESP LTD Eclipse 87 Black (new)
ESP LTD ’87 Series, 24.75” Scale, Mahogany Body, 3 Piece Maple Neck Thru Body, Macassar Ebony Fretboard, 24 Extra Jumbo Frets, Seymour Duncan ’59 & JB pickups
While ESP first got started in 1975 as a small repair shop in Tokyo, it was really toward the mid ‘80s when their guitars and basses grabbed the attention of players around the world. The LTD ’87 Series are faithful recreations of this set of instruments from ESP’s 1987 catalog.
Unlike the current single-cutaway Eclipse shape, the original ESP Eclipse was based on the TE archtop shape, which is the basis of this ESP LTD Eclipse ’87. This guitar offers neck-thru-body construction with a mahogany body and three-piece maple neck.
The ’87 Series Eclipse models offer a set of Seymour Duncan ’59 (neck) and JB (bridge) pickup set (with original style bobbins and a push-pull control to split the coils), and a Floyd Rose-1000 locking tremolo.
This version is finished in gloss black with offset inlays, white bindings and black metal parts.
