ESP has announced some very attractive guitars over the last few weeks, including the re-issue of the Kirk Hammett KH3 signature from his Black Album era. But this new ESP USA Eclipse FR Jawbreaker model is a stand-out guitar – just check out that finish. This is the latest guitar using the ESP Eclipse body shape, with a Floyd Rose locking trem system on a mahogany body and a three-piece mahogany neck with 22-extra jumbo-frets on an ebony fingerboard with split-flag inlays. The “Jawbreaker” idea pushes ESP’s single-cut guitars into an interesting new aesthetic direction.

EMG Loaded

This ESP Eclipse Jawbreaker model comes with a set of active EMG 57/66 humbucking pickups and looks like it is designed to rock hard. As it’s a USA built model, I expect it will not to be cheap. But you know it will be a stunning build that’s made to last. Just like its jawbreaker candy namesake, this guitar will take a lot of hard work to get through.

I owned one of the early ESP Eclipse models from Japan and it was a solid guitar, with an amazing build quality. I would expect this US model to be on par with that, if not even higher in terms of workmanship. We are looking forward to seeing more information about this new American model during the ESP three day livestream event that runs from today until 13th.
