I checked out an ESP E-II Eclipse in a store, and it just felt plastic-y to me. I can't put a finger on it, but something about the way it felt when holding the guitar and strumming it unplugged felt less natural than what I'm used to. I don't have much experience with guitars, but this is what I expected a lower end guitar, namely, an LTD, to feel like. That feeling combined with the way it looked (matte black finish and EMG pickups) made it seem as if it was made to be plugged into an ultra high gain br00talz amp where guitar personality is deleted from the equation. I also checked one out in 2014 and I don't remember how it felt back then, but I remember I wasn't exactly impressed with it either. I owned a couple of ESP M-IIs and they actually felt more natural to me, even though they were black and with EMGs (and I'm not talking about the sound when plugged in). So I wonder what it is. I wonder what other people who play non-metal-oriented guitars think of the ESP Eclipse in terms of feel.
