    Just picked up this ESP Eclipse II. Killer guitar. Thinner than a Les Paul with a tummy cut and thick poly finish. Sounds a little growlier than a LP, more like an SG (with EMG's). I'm not sure I want t keep it though as I already have a white EMG loaded guitar. I'd be interested in trade suggestions :naughty: If I keep it I'm definately swapping the current 81 for an 85.

    I like everything about them, except that inlay, for an LP I need traps preffered, block will do, or bare.

    I actually dig the inlay, I just wish it had a beefier neck. It feels good, but I've become spolied by fat historic necks.

    Do you put the 85 in the bridge? When I bought the ZW set, I found the 85 was a KILLER bridge pickup.... even though they said to put it in the neck.

    Love those Eclipses... I've just found ESP to be a very expensive guitar! But the quality is definitely there.
