Just got my LTD. Saved a couple hundred bucks and bought a B-stock on eBay. They mounted the cross crooked, so I unscrewed it, drilled two new holes and screwed it back on. Good as new. And it came with a case, which according to the ESP website, is not included in the normal price. As far as feel & sound, its very similar to my LTD Truckster, as I expected. Its about the same thickness as the Truckster, but it IS double bound. The cross is made of metal in case anyone was wondering. Here's a before & after of the crooked cross.
