hi, I confirm  it is an Eclipse model not at all a Mirage one. "Initial examples shippedwith wilkinson GTB100 wraparound bridges with an adjustable insert for B and G strings " Introduced in 1994 and listed at $999 retail price when introduced only in transparent finishes . Additional finishes were made available within a year as was a 12 strings version." (informations :THE ULTIMATE An Illustrated History of HAMER GUITAR by Steve MATTHES & Joe MOFFETT, Schiffer Edition ISBN; 978-0-7543-4352-0 page137. more infos about Mirage at the page 135 "Wilkinson trmolo, 25.5 scale fender type, design template of Jeff WATSON model, KOA carved top mahogany boby first released with 3 rails humbuking Seymour Duncan, and later offer with a 2 full sized humbukers in a mapple cap version with finish like Kool Blue and Bright Red Transparant"
