EC-1000 VB (Deluxe) & Eclipse-II VB (Standard)...can someone tell me why is the price difference between these two 1000$? What's so better in Eclipse that costs 1000$ more?

As far as I can tell the flamed maple top and 2 extra frets, as well as the Earvana nut on the Deluxes. Theres the Gotoh bridge as well. Ebony is also a bit more expensive than rosewood for the fretboard.

That and some kind of better worksmanship in their too hopefully.

Also, be aware that the listed price on their website isn't the price they actually go for 97% of the time (eg: for everything else than new Mesa Boogies)

in addition to what selj said, the esp one is japanese-built, while the ltd is korean.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

the LTD ECs are made in Korea, arent the ESP (with ESP on teh headstock) Eclipse and Eclipse 2s made in America or is it Japan?

yep all esp's are made in japan and then only a selected few are destined for american markets. also your paying for a case with the standards.
