How does the EC1000 compare in terms of sound and feel to the ESP version? Is the neck the same carve/body same thickness and all that stuff? Might be a cheaper way for me to find out of I like the sound/feel without dropping so much $$$$ into it.
(No ESP dealers nearby)
The dimensions are the same. The only difference would be you would get the Earvana nut on the EC1000. As far as sound and how they play, you would be hard pressed to tell a difference.
