The ESP E-II Eclipse-7 Evertune has arrived. Had it shipped to a Guitar Center a few blocks from me. Unboxing: (The Eclipse was also wrapped very nicely in the case, but I didn't get a shot of that wrapping). Portrait: Living in its natural environment: It is effectively my first seven string and was set up very nicely. The GC tech checked it over for me and he verified everything is up to par. It pretty much plays smooth as warm butter, except for having Elixir Nanoweb Light 10 gauge strings, where I am used to Ernie Ball 9's, which made bending an effort. The Evertune is pretty cool and will hopefully counteract the tuning, intonation, and string height effect of Chicago weather variations. Although, I currently have it set up for fast bending and subtle vibrato, which allows it to go sharp. The Seymour Duncan Pegasus bridge pickup is good, but hotter than I am used to, having primarily played PRS HFS pickups. The hotness especially apparent for high gain tones boosted with a Tubescreamer, where they are extremely noisy unless I roll back the volume on the Eclipse. The Ebony fingerboard may have been dyed to ensure it is extra black because my fingers had a little black on them after playing for a while. Although, I have never gotten a new guitar with an ebony fingerboard, so that may always be the case. All-in-all, I am currently very happy with it. Thank you for your guidance here at SevernString.
