Eclat Standard Features
 
Body:

The selected two-piece centre-jointed mahogany body, and mahogany neck with extended neck joint all coalesce to maintain the Eclat’s elegance and purity of line, and ensure the foundations of a constructional integrity which provides strength, superb resonance, and ensures amazing sustain.

The unique reduced profile neck joint and subtly extended cutaway offers enhanced upper fret access. The superb overall balance a makes the Eclat Standard a pleasure to wear.

Machine Heads:
Wilkinson® WJ55 machine heads provide quick, accurate, stable tuning.

Nusmooth and friction free.

Neck:
Gloss finish, natural stain premium mahogany classic ‘soft C’ profile for instant comfort, speed, accuracy, and a luxurious, ‘played in’ feel.

Fingerboard:
Premium Indian Rosewood for durability, and outstanding tonal transfer with a 10” radius for a super comfortable, responsive, positive playing feel. 

Scale Length:
24 3/4” / 628mm.

Frets:
22 Medium profile hi-durability nickel silver frets ensure accuracy, comfort, and an overall feel.

Pickups:
A carefully curated set of Fret-King pickups enables the Eclat Standard to deliver phenomenal versatility.

Custom designed Fret-King Soapstack™ stacked soap bar pickups, created by Trev Wilkinson give the Eclat Standard a powerful but easily controlled voice which speaks with definition, power, punch and an edge fully variable from growling attack to pure, sweet blues.

For maximum performance versatility and broad tonal palette, the Eclat Standard features a master volume with latching 'Kill Switch', and Fret-King’s uniques Varicoil™ control, which progressively winds the selected stacked Soapstack pickups down to single coil, all providing a range of tones which go from searing, saturated, full bore neck position sustain, redolent with classic rock tone, all the way to glassy, classic clearly defined single coil bridge tones, with a range of tonal variation along the way that make the Eclat Standard an almost uniquely versatile and useable guitar.

Control Functions:
• Three-way toggle selects neck, both, or bridge pickup.
• Master Volume with Push-Push latching kill switch.
• Master Tone.
• Varicoil progressively rolls either or both Soapstack pickups from double coil to single coil.

Bridge:

Enhancing that tonality is the outstanding Wilkinson post mounted GTBCR combined wraparound bridge/tailpiece. A masterpiece of design, the GTBCR is constructed from solid lightweight aluminium, which lifts the higher end of the tonal spectrum, adding zip and sparkle to an already powerful fundemantal tone. The GTBCR also features two stages of intonation adjustment, with a separate adjustable, lockable saddle for the 2nd and 3rd strings, ensuring spot on intonation with a wide variety of string types and gauges.

Carry Bag:

The Eclat Standard comes with a Fret-King luxury gig bag.

About us

Edinburgh Music centre is the expansion of Brass and Woodwind musical instrument restoration and repair est 2002.

Having studied orchestral instrument restoration in 1995 for 3 years and a further 4 years apprenticeship, I opened Brass and woodwind in a small workshop in south west Edinburgh.

We have grown and now have 3 workshops for brass woodwind and string instruments, along with chemical and ultrasonic cleaning room and a pro polishing room, I believe it to be the finest and best equipped musical instrument restoration workshop in the UK.

We have built a showroom for the huge range of instruments we have restored over the years and now offer a large selection of new and fully reconditioned instruments.

We want to thank everyone who has used the shop and workshops over the last 20 years for your continued and valued custom and invite you to visit Edinburgh Music centre for a very warm welcome and the best range musical instruments and accessories available.
