Hi y'all.

I'm looking to buy a new guitar soon. I'd like to get an ESP or LTD. I love the body and look of the EC-1000's and Eclipse II's. I've played the LTD's and I really like them. But I can't find anywhere close to try out the Eclipse's. Are they actually worth the giant price jump? Looking at the specs they seem almost identical. I guess my question is: is there a noticeable difference in feel/quality/sound/durability between the ESP and LTD or is the price difference just for the name on the headstock?

If anyone's interested I play lead guitar in a post-hardcore type rock band and play out of a Valveking 100 head.
