Just a very quick question for those who have experiences with the ESP Eclipse ii. I currently have a EC-1000 ltd (like most it seems) and would like to upgrade to the ESP Eclipse ii and was just wondering if the weight of the guitars are very similar ?(going to check the guitar out next week and thought i'd get this found out

Thanks much,
David

Mine weighs a solid 7.69 lbs (case weighs somewhere near 11lbs) I've got a RG550 so I'll have to compare the weight to that soon.

edit: Okay just holding both guitars in both hands I can't tell which one weighs more so they are fairly similar and it's not as much as a noticeable difference.

^ No way a guitar can weight 7.69 KG. My Edwards Les Paul was darn heavy and it was only 5KG. you sure it's not lbs you're talking about?

Yeah, 7.69kg is over 16 lbs, which is heavier than the heaviest of unchambered Les Paul customs. Eclipses aren't that heavy, they're about what your standard super strat weighs.

The weight of the EC-1000 and Eclipse should be about the same, unless the Eclipse is a FT (Full Thickness) version.
