Also their customer service is top notch.

    This is the first ESP USA guitar I've owned and dear lord its a pleasure to play! I've been an Ibanez guy all my life and I was going between gibson and ESP, then this showed up on my facebook feed and I couldn't help myself. Cheers!

    Glad you couldn't help yourself, it's absolutely stunning! Love the washed pink color by the toggle. HNGD!

    Congrats! Looks great.

    I know a certain dealer (popular around these parts) that always says there's nothing better than a USA ESP.

    Nice!

    I have a USA M-II and it is flawless. Less options to choose from than the Japan CS but it is high quality.

    Damn...

    You and the dude that just got the 7 string EC with the Evertune are really making me wish I had jumped on the 8 string Eclipse with Evertune when they were still making it. I adore those split inlays.

    Many, many congrats man. I hope you enjoy the hell out of it.

    Wow! Stellar man, what a looker. Those Eclipses play themselves and sound huge. Great score.

    Aesthetically it's not my cup of tea at all. But the ESP USA Eclipse design is so cool.

    How are the stainless steel frets? That seems like a major benefit of the USA stuff

    Beautiful guitar. As a production single cut the Eclipse is really iconic in its own right at this point, IMO.
