    Well, they'd both be manufactured in the same place - the quality would be comparable. And ESP neck profiles are of a fairly typical shape/dimensions across most models, so if you like one, you can be fairly certain you'll like another, barring things like signature models (some of the Lynch models have different dimensions, etc). I'd say your best bet is to have a good think about which shape or finish you like the look of best, which shape and layout of controls would suit you, and which one you can get the best deal on. After getting my first Eclipse I CTM way back in 2005, I bought another 4 ESPs over the next few years, having not tried any of them prior to making a purchase, and I haven't yet been disappointed. Their consistency is...well, consistent.
