The ESP/LTD left handed Eclipse ‘87 FR is a faithful recreation of the original ESP archtop single-cutaway Eclipse-shape guitar that graced the pages of the ESP catalog in 1987. Unlike the current Eclipse body style, the lefty Eclipse ‘87 FR is a tele-style archtop with a Mahogany body, neck-thru design and a three-piece maple neck with a 24 fret Macassar Ebony fingerboard that delivers amazing tone and silky smooth playability.
The lefty Eclipse ‘87 delivers a scorching hot tone from a set of Seymour Duncan pickups. Featuring a Duncan JB in the bridge position and a Duncan ‘59 in the neck position, this Duncan pickup set features the original style bobbins and push-pull coil splitting capabilities to provide you with an array of vintage and modern tones appropriate for everything from blues to metal.
High quality hardware appointments like a Floyd Rose 1000 tremolo bridge with locking nut and LTD tuners, you can rest assured that your intonation and tuning will remain stable in all kinds of playing situations.
While ESP got its start in 1975 as a small guitar repair shop in Tokyo, it wasn’t until the mid ‘80s that their guitars attracted the attention of players around the world. Fully capturing the sleek looks and shreddy feel of the original, the left handed ESP/LTD Eclipse ‘87 delivers the goods with a set of modern and vintage ‘80‘s features that give it the sonic versatility today's players are looking for. Featuring a set of great sounding Seymour Duncan pickups, complete with coil splitting capabilities, a Floyd Rose tremolo system and thin-U shaped shreddy neck, you will enjoy the sonic versatility and silky playability that today’s professionals need.
