So i've become addicted to the les paul sound, but i love the playability of my esp ltd ec-1000. Sounds totally different than the LP, plays like a dream, but doesnt have the sound.

I was thinking about ordering an edwards LP , as a replacement. Any advice?

my epiphone les paul custom has a noticably more tapered neck than my friends les paul studio. nut sure if its the profile overall or what, but it is slighty thicker feeling.

if you like the guitar, i would change pickups

Epiphone Prophecy GX has a great neck, the satin might feel cheap to some people though. Personally I love the satin/matte finish on the neck. The EX version has EMGs, and the GX has Gibson pickups.

I don't think a bolt on neck will sound the same as a set neck. The only way to sound alike a Les Paul IMO is to get a guitar that follows the LP formula. The LTD probably just needs new pickups.
But if you're set on a new guitar I know little about Edwards other than they are assembled in Japan (made somewhere else apparently) Maybe you could look into MIJ Tokai. The lower end models are around what you paid for the LTD.
Moving on.....

The ESP/LTD EC series have thinner necks. I had an EC-1000 back in the day, def. slimmer than an LP neck.
Custom guitars, vintage amps, boutique pedals. Blah, blah, blah.

I own an Edwards LP and the neck is slightly thinner than a normal LP neck and I think the sound is not too far off from a Gibson LP so I'd say go for it.
