Excellent, some of the Eclipses he has are just stunning. And I see some have already sold out. Hope you'll share a photo when you get it.
There's an amazing custom shop Eclipse on eBay USA right now with a completely insane top. But the guy is saying the list price is $8000. Absolutely crazy those ESP custom shop quotes...http://www.ebay.com/itm/Left-Handed-Lef ... 500wt_1413
I used to have a custom shop eclipse, it was see through black, and the top was amazing, the only real difference between it and a standard eclipse was the thru neck which was very nicely done. For some reason I just couldn't get on with it and traded it. I also had a vintage black std Eclipse and could never get on with the finish so sold that too!
The difference between the two playability wise etc was minimal.
The ESP custom stuff is really crazy money, I think you could buy a prs custom or a gibson reissue and still have plenty of change.
The std ESP stuff is good value for money as long as you don't buy it from the UK (i.e £1700 to order a lefty Eclipse from a uk dealer
