What is the difference? Is it worth the extra money getting the EC-1000? I know the EC-1000 has locks but is that all? I mean, that's not really important to me. I play a wide variety of music, and don't want the hassle of locks anyways. So what is the difference between these guitars? They both look awesome to me.

finish options and abalone binding. After I get a Tele and a 7 string guitar, I really want an EC-1000 in blue flame; really sexy guitar. Also, better hardware on the 1000 series.
