Ok, so this one isn't a cool ILF guitar, but it's probably my favorite right now.

I completely gutted it this weekend and put in all new electronics and hum-cancelling Fralin p90s (it came stock with SD Blackouts which were way too hot and metal-oriented). The Edwards eclipses are very uncommon in the US so I didn't know what to expect, but I'm glad I took the eBay gamble - it sounds and plays like a much more expensive guitar.

looks cool! Love the commitment to black on white all over.

The black hw on white finish looks slick. Is Edwards the Japanese market ESP brand?

Yeah, you see some in the US but usually their more illegal looking LP copies.

JHS knockoff Marauder from the late 70s with some custom work done by a friend. He yanked the hum and single coils out and replace them with 90s he hand wired to replicate 61 SG special pups, changed the nut to a zero glide with zero fret and made that sweet ass ugly pick guard. I love this thing! Plays and sound unholy...

Picked up this Strat a couple of weeks ago, and I'm loving it.

2nd strat I've owned. Been a jumbo fret guy for quite a few years, but the tall narrows on this might make me a convert. It came with 9's, and I'm sticking with them for now. Works well for my bass player hands. The only impediment to shredding is good taste.

For those who say a Strat can't do doom, you're wrong. Add an extra gainy pedal to your board and shut your whore mouth!

Sweet Strat. I've been wanting a Green/black/maple one one for a long time. I'm without a Strat again for a while and craving one again, I might do a parts build. Strats can definitely doom, easily. I have a demo on Soundcloud that I made like 5 years ago w/ my old MIM hardtail conversion Strat doing doomy tones with a Joyo Ultimate drive. Just because someone said they were "too bright" to play heavy stuff. Which isn't true, it can just get brighter easier than a Gibson humbucker loaded type guitar.

Those olive/black/cream combos are the best looking jobs the have currently!

Thank you both! It is killer and definitely a player's guitar. It's decievingly heavy. Like as much as my 90s lp studio but doesn't look like it. I'm having the internal war as to whether I tune down to C or leave it standard...

Re: Let's see your GUITAR!

Thu Apr 26, 2018 10:12 pm

Obviously just tune it down a full step and split the difference
