ESP Eclipse questions

Tried searching for older threads on the topic and didn't find much. So I thought I'd post this here, hopefully some of you might have experience with the guitars in question.

I'm looking at getting an ESP Eclipse but if I could I'd get the Full Thickness version, but alas they're not readily available in my area. But the LTD EC-1000T CTM is. So I was just posting this to see what people thought would be the better choice (or what they'd go with):

ESP Eclipse Standard Series or the EC-1000T CTM. I know the ESP would probably be nicer instrument but if any of you who may have/played both what are your thoughts.

Honestly you're not going to be able to tell a big difference in these guitars. Maybe a slight increase in craftsmanship in the ESP. If you even notice. The LTD is still an awesome choice for a guitar, and you can still have some money left over.
Go back to sleep....

Do, or do not. There is no try.

If you want the full thickness then you have to get the EC-1000T. There's a huge difference in feel, not something you can just "either-or".

Ya ended up finding a shop not to far that had both EC-1000 and EC-1000T in stock. Impressed by both, kinda liked the feel of the 1000T a bit more so I think my choice is made.

Thanks for the input though guys
