Which Vox do you have? An AC30 is going to be a lot louder than one of their SS or hybrid models.

250 will get you a Vintage V100 (even a Lemon Drop) but it won't sound great through that amp. Still, a good place to start and when you upgrade the amp you'll enjoy it all over again.

Yamaha tried a lot of shapes before they settled on the SG type we know as a sort of double cut Les Paul Custom. Most Yammys are well put together.

A very versatile guitar in your price range is the Cort Z44. Also the finish is excellent and is far more comfortable to play than the average Les Paul shape. Well worth trying.

Yes but........ The XD has a lot of built-in effects which would either not work nicely alongside pedals or would need quite a bit of work to get the best out of both.

You will get close with BKP War Pigs. You might get even closer with Irongear Platinum 90s which are humbucker sized. I can get almost spot on with my Skatterbranes but they are a bit pricey.
