There is a new EC model, LTD EC Arctic Metal, set through neck, single pickup, looks nice. See it on the ESP Ltd website, also Sweetwater has listings (but SW has none in stock, maybe too new). The color, the set through, and the single pickup make it kind of special. I have a ESP LTD EC-1000 ET, Koa body and top. The Evertune bridge turned out to be really nice. I had a bone nut installed and had it plek'ed at SW. Sweet guitar. My son has it now.
The same day I bought the ESP USA EC, I went nutz and bought an E-II M1 NT in black. Gotoh TOM bridge, neck through, string through body/neck, naked maple neck (bone nut, properly cut too) ebony fretboard, EMG 81 pup. Very nice guitar, not as perfect as the ESP USA but hey, less than half the price. I bought it to pair with a GK-3 into an SY-1000. Rabea's demo sold me on this setup. The GK-3 pickup proper mounts cleanly on the TOM, and the GK rest of it mounts above the body, secured to the strap nut. Image borrowed from ESP. No binding. I avoid binding when possible. Just me.
