Okay so I palyed the EC 1000 a while back at a Sam Ash store and loved it but Im wondering if for the extra money if its that much berrer than the EC 401? Has anybody played both and what can you tell me difference wise I could afford both but I would like to save the extra 200 or so dollars if I could, thanks in advance!

From what I see, there isn't much difference except there's a locking bridge and more colors on the EC 1000.



EDIT: The EC 1000 is solid Mahogany, and the EC 401 has a flamed maple top with a mahogany back.

They're the same, except for the wood grades, hardware, and the place of manufacture.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

I know all of that I can read specs, but as far as durability playibility and built quality, I dont need a locking bridge because I want to use it for multiple tunings and I already have 2 guitars with a floyd, and as far as colors Im getting it in black either way, so let me know as far as that goes if its worth the extra $200? thanks guys

I think the LTD deluxe series has 5-piece neck while the 400s are of 3-pieces neck. Might make a different.
