Hey guys,

Looking to upgrade from my Epi SG. I'm looking at either the LTD EC-1000 or the ESP Eclipse. Was just looking at the specs online, and the only thing different seems to be the Gotoh TOM bridge and tailpiece on the ESP vs the Tonepros locking on the LTD. Can anyone tell me the difference? Which is better?

All a Tonepros bridge really does is stay in place if you take all of the strings off at once to clean the guitar. According to the marketing copy a non-locking bridge could conceivably fall over and scratch your precious finish (right under the strings where nobody can see it anyway). And some people claim that the extra mass of the TonePros bridge enhances sustain, but given how small the difference is I think that’s probably people hearing what they want to hear.
