    I’ve just joined the club (second time) with an EII MII in see thru black.

    needed a little bit of a setup and have restrung with 10-42s and it is flawless. Instant bond / love it.

    im not sure about the EMGs yet though, does anyone have any suggestions?

    I’m tempted by the Fishman Merrows or moderns but am more of a passive player usually. If passive it’d ether be bkp juggs or something from Seymour or Dimarzio

    inspire me please folks.

    Pickup recommendations require a minimum of one or more photos of said guitar.

    That said, I love MIIs. I use passives and haven't been swayed by Fishmans. In my last MII I did a Nazgul in the bridge and it sounded solid. However I bought a Full Shred for my Black Metal M but just haven't put it in yet. That body is alder and yours mahogany with a maple top, which I find sounds great with a full shred.
    If you want something that's just cut and more mids and high? Black winter is a good one.

    Thanks for the suggestion - its this one: https://www.espguitars.com/products/10034-e-ii-m-ii-fm-stblk

    I’ll try and figure out how to post pics when I’ve taken some (need better light as its a dark guitar).

    I’ve got as Nazgul / Sentient in my Mayones. The Nazgul is nice below E standard but a bit too toppy for me at standard. Sweet spot to my ear is in d standard. Really like the sentient in any tuning
    I want to keep this one in E (at least for now) - will check out the shred.

    On today's episode of blacked, I finally finished my M10 with new hardware. I also dyed a fretboard for the first time.

    @possumkiller that looks great. Makes me think I need a non-Gibson w/ a TOM in my collection.

    Here's my first two Eclipse guitars. The white Eclipse II is my first guitar from ESP. While this red one is no longer in my possession, I was recently able to finally replace it with a similar albeit nicer one earlier this year. Also made from around that timeframe.

    I also owned a 5 string bass from the LTD line a few years ago.

    Those look like really amazing guitars and that bass looks top notch as well!

    Well last week I decided to stripe up my LTD in tribute to the late great EVH. I did it with masking tape intending for it to be temporary, but now that it's on there I kind of want it to be permanent. Anyone have a good idea on how to achieve that (or how it might look if I just leave the masking tape on there)?

    easiest is taping off anywhere you don't want to be black, then spraypainting the lines.

    I bought a bottle of fiebings and dabbed it on with the supplied applicator. A very tiny bit goes a really long way. Try to tape up shit you don't want dyed but expect the dye to bleed through the tape anyway. There were a couple of spots on the back of the neck I had to go over with fine sandpaper to get the dye off the finish.

    Next time I might try something like elmer's school glue around the edges of the parts I don't want dyed. Or something else that can be applied and peeled off later that sticks better than tape.
