A Black Beauty with the mouth and the sound!

ESP Eclipse-I CTM FTPublished on 05/19/13 at 00:30
(This content has been automatically translated from French)
I think the description has been made previously

It has to do a LP Black Beauty with equivalent SPES but with ESP stamped instead of the Gibson logo and it is not bad

Eclipse II and I (same simple CTM) based on it, that's all ... here we are in the same category (appearance level, its not I specify)

So equivalent characteristics: same body thickness as LP, weight rigor handle quite round but not too (60 typed see a little less), 4 knobs, double custom binding, gold Gotoh hardware (Balck beauty inside) ... register and big sound!! This is what differentiates

UTILIZATION

Ergonomically correct, we will not quibble and circling

So equivalent characteristics: same body thickness as LP, weight rigor handle quite round but not too (60 typed see a little less), 4 knobs, double custom binding, gold Gotoh hardware (Balck beauty inside) ... register and big sound!! This is what differentiates

UTILIZATION

Ergonomically correct, we will not quibble and circling

With this model we are in the area of ​​Les Paul rather than the Eclipse cad handle beefier but still fine for LP (con is still far from speedneck jackson or Thin U like ESP Horizon bolt on IBD , etc .....), 55mm body, no chamfer stomach and weight accordingly

For the record, I received the error BKS model that weighed 3.9 kg, and the case was of poor quality
After that, back to the supplier (a large German mag) and the Gloss Black arrives in a good hard case, more upscale and the guitar weighs 4.4 kg .... who knows why it denotes a difference c is supposed to be the same guitar with a different color

Compared to a LP Custom Black Beauty which it is based, the gameplay is equivalent weight as

Good resonance vacuum and once connected, you immediately understand its orientation, the big sound

SOUNDS

Saturation level, is in the category'' lumberjack, truck'' and adding the EMG 81 is directly understand its for us, sound is bold, powerful, rich in harmonics while remaining precise ....

EMG 60 sounds good bluesy but I prefer the 85 is more bassy'''', rounder and more suited to a neck position on a LP for clean / crunch
No distortion, it is very fluid and is more accurate than 85, which is not bad. After 85/60, this is a matter of taste uen

In distortion, it therefore falls in with honors.

Clean level, it is not his forte!! round level, it sounds good for blues crunch a little but I think the neck pickup a little dry, it lacks creamy. With the 81, it does not sound that distortion, you go look no further! may be playing on the pitch, I have not tried

To summarize, this is a bit what the difference of his girlfriend Gibson, an appearance of LP Custom BB and micro config to enter into any type of metal / rock ... not too upset the blues ... but I pity think it is not its purpose as

I think her a couple Paf'' handmade'' easel supercharged alnico 5 and round under high gain alnico 2 ... just make just as bad ... but more versatile

OVERALL OPINION

I just received it. I've had hands between models Eclipse, I've never liked this profiling and body too thin thickness. Its level is kif kif ... I did not denoted a big difference with qques mm mahogany and more

I owned a edwards Zakk Wylde, you type in the same category as more upscale

Record, I remake that choice without hesitation because the finish is worthy of ESP, perfect even, standard class (as always) that is not even in the case where Gisbon finish always has default even for models 3000 euro penny more

What I miss most are the EMG .... it is only my opinion .... it is excellent indeed, I have long been over, but I changed a bit ..... A swap microphones and the matter is settled

Price level, it is expensive but if you compare what is comparable with, I do not see on what type or model as to rival it (its level, finishing)

I bought it because it is unr LP like at any point that is not the version of Eclipse II or I (same CTM)

UTILIZATION

The guitar is a copy of Les Paul, with a real full body (not chambered, too hard to find now ...). It has the same characteristics so that is a mahogany body with a thickness of 55mm and a maple soundboard. It is important to clarify because only models Eclipse FT (Full Thickness) to import from Japan enjoy this thickness (as opposed to Ecplise-I CTM and Eclipse-II USA).

The real difference here is the handle that is ultra fast for a Les Paul and designed in order to titillate the highs with ease, the serious shredder quickly and comprehensively follow up to the big heavy riffs well without twisting the wrist.

The sound is daunting ... Respect for the full body of the guitar gives it a character Lumberjack, Rock and uncompromising, supercharged by the EMG. The electronics are reliable and knobs are extremely accurate and sensitive. The lifts are sturdy and the guitar once set on its own preferences (neck, bridge, string action) will never lose tuning. The quality of the screw shaft and the reactivity of wood (stringed instrument overall) was highlighted by my luthier.

SOUNDS

Straightforward as possible, this instrument is built for the heavy rock in all its variants (Rock Hard, Metal and more). The EMG decidedly rock sound on this guitar sound I'd never seen in all my other guitars (Jackson COW Fender Jim Root, etc.). Even better, the guitar will speak more or less aggressive depending on your attack on the strings, a gentle rock to metal very punchy ... Provided that the amplification some do it justice!

The sound is big, round and warm, there is the true spirit Les Paul, fat and heavy, which adds the edge EMG saturation. The best of both worlds?

Note that the couple has never EMG81/EMG60 both expressed: the undeniable qualities of the bridge in 81 to attack jerky rhythms and heavy riffs, and the 60 round and very bluesy, creamy wish saturated or solo arpeggios in clean ... Not to mention the intermediate position that is very vintage and perfect to bring diversity to the sound. Advanced equipment, an instrument of very high quality.

Note, however, we are dealing here with a Les Paul Custom and prepared! In the sense that we do not find the characteristics of a Gold Top 60s, but its best to always refer to this day that ESP has added all modern tools specific to contemporary Rock! Amazing yes, but in his chosen field: THE BIG SOUND;)

OVERALL OPINION

This guitar is simply fantastic as well on paper in the characteristics that once in the hands and then plugged into a good amp (which transmits all the nuances you would expect of this tool, which provides us generously !)

This is the ultimate weapon for a big sound rock / metal and very heavy punchy, something which a man! This instrument sweat bass, treble and smoothed the saturation snapping and growling, never shrill or dry. It's big, it's bold, yet accurate enough and so good!
