Really what you have now is about the best you're going to get. Unless you're wanting something with a floyd rose

Yeah the EC-1000 is really nice but after a while, I think the binding would start to piss me off too...

Oh my... How can you get sick of those beautiful bindings?
Anyway, Schecter is always a very good option. I would recommend the C-1 Plus because it has the same neck length as your current guitar. And its beautiful, too! Throw in some extra cash for a new pair of pickup and it will scare other guitars to dead.

Or if you cant part away from Les Paul shape...

Edwards is the Japanese division of ESP. They make good quality Les Paul comparable to real ESP. Try ishibashi shop or something.

Or why not take a look at Hagstrom. The Swede are generally cheaper but having quite number of good reviews lately. Not exactly look like a Les Paul, but what the hell.

I've played some Hagström's and I must say they look and feel awsome. Extremly good quality for the money, even better quality than "cheap" Gibsons I think.

Look into the 'Japanese ESP' Edwards guitars. They make awesome Les Paul copies.

Yes, the ESP standards are totally worth it. It's like comparing a a Made in Korea Ibanez with a Japanese prestige. If you can afford it, go with the Eclipse II.
AMP:
5150 combo
GSP1101 + Tech 21 PE60

GUITARS:
ESP LTD M-255 w/ SD Full Shred
Kramer Vanguard w/ JE-1000 active preamp
Douglas WF-150sn w/ GFS "Hot Lead" set

EFFECTS:
Bos SD-1 (boost)
AMT DT-2

yeah I've played a eclipse standard in a shop a while back and it was really nice, I'm just wanting lots of view on it cause I'm on the edge of buying one depending on how much my ec-1000 goes for. plus alternatives don't want to rush into it.

If you like your EC-1000 apart from the binding, just get an EC-400. Essentially the same guitar but less tacky.

Oh, and if you're selling a guitar on such a trivial thing as binding then you're on a slippery slope.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

you might also consider going to www.rondomusic.com and looking at the higher end agiles. they're right around your price range, and are supposedly really sweet guitars. they are more traditional LP type guitars than the ESP, in terms of scale length most notably, but they're good axes.
Signatures are for posers.

oh wait, that's a signature.

dammit.
