    Recently acquired '97 ESP Eclipse S-I. Ebony board, 24 frets, 24.75" scale, floyd, etc. Haven't had much time to play it yet, needs a setup and solid cleaning but the quality of ESP (particularly of that era) is very apparent. It's got some dings / scrapes, but nothing major (especially considering the price!). Great feeling neck, pickup & wiring configuration is neat and I genuinely have no issue with Floyds. Also (and I'm sure I'm in the minority here) I think the Sugizo series headstock is beyond fantastic - up there with the cockstock.

    Looking into a Bareknuckle Cobra bridge, possibly - has a super chunky tone in my ESP Tele. Sounds pretty killer as is, though!
    I also wholeheartedly blame Blytheryn's recent Eclipse-I acquisition for causing this :cheers:

    A Sugizo Sig! You don't see those too often! I don't remember, were his sigs full thickness? Happy NGD!

    I can't say for sure as I don't know the full thickness dimensions off hand, but other than the belly cut this model is precisely 2" thick, including top.
