Product Overview

As a long-time user and dealer for ESP going back about 30 years now, I have a very strong connection to the brand and the history of the guitars. I haven't really considered stocking non-Japanese or USA-made ESP products... until now. These guys at ESP are making it harder and harder for me to be a snob abnout some things. I present to you the very first (and only) Korean-made guitars stocked by Killerburst Guitars. Kudos to my friends at ESP!

While ESP first got started in 1975 as a small repair shop in Tokyo, it was really toward the mid ‘80s when our guitars and basses grabbed the attention of players around the world. The LTD ’87 Series are faithful recreations of this set of instruments from ESP’s 1987 catalog. Unlike the current single-cutaway Eclipse shape, the original ESP Eclipse was based on the TE archtop shape,  which is the basis of the LTD Eclipse ’87. This guitar offers neck-thru-body construction with a mahogany body and three-piece maple neck. The ’87 Series Eclipse models offer a set of Seymour Duncan ’59 (neck) and JB (bridge) pickup set (with original style bobbins and a push-pull control to split the coils), and a Floyd Rose-1000 locking tremolo. Available in Black and Pearl White finishes.
