Comments about ESP E-II Eclipse 7-String Electric Guitar:
-------I've been playing guitar for over a decade, and this guitar is absolutely amazing! The case itself too is amazing! Absolutely love the case. The tuning pegs actually have a locking system for the strings. On the backside of the tuning pegs, on the rear of the headstock, there are knobs you can turn by hand that will tighten a screw that's inside of the tuning peg. The tuning pegs are designed so that the screw will pinch the string against the top of the peg. It holds the strings securely in place and makes tuning and changing strings more efficient.
-------The 81-7 pickups weren't very impressive. They sounded kind of "dead", because they didn't have a full, clear, lively tone. The 707s on the other hand were actually very good. They had a very full and warm tone, but the bottom end wasn't too heavy. Which provided great clarity without getting muddy. However, I had already purchased some Duncan Blackouts to use with this guitar, so I ended up switching out the pickups. I got rid of the 81-7s and kept the 707s as a backup component. Although you really couldn't go wrong if you did decide to keep the 707s in.
-------Honestly though, you should definitely consider purchasing specific pickups if you're willing to invest into a guitar at this price range. They can make the biggest difference in the sound quality of the instrument. Great pickups can be acquired easily for 200-300 as a pair, or for 100-150 respectively for an individual pickup. The guitar had quick connectors installed with the stock pickups, so it soldering and rewiring was unnecessary. I unscrewed the stock pickups, unplugged them, plugged in the new ones, screwed those in, and I was done.
