DSL is really the best option here. The combos aren't as good. I'd go for one of the older JCM2000 ones.
It'll do your clean sounds and your distortion tones equally well and you won't have to rely...

I have a suspicion the Fender trems are standard spacing.
I'd definitely measure the spacing at the bridge pickup and check.

20 watts is fine for gigging, as long as you don't need pristine cleans. Even better if you're being mic'd up.

I use the DR heavy core 11-65 (11, 15, 19, 32, 42, 54, 65) on me 25.5 scale 7. The tension is a little looser than I'd like in standard. I drop the B to an A and it gets waaaay too loose and just...

Ah. I figured if you already had a rack and were taking it to gigs, a rack system would be the way to go.
But in that case, I'd go the Pod. I probably wouldn't worry about the X model, seeing as...

Why not go rack? Like a GSP1101 or Gmajor?
You already have rack gear in your rig, don't you?

If it has to be entirely floor based, HD500.

Hard rock/metal is really broad tone wise. List some bands that you would be aiming towards.
And budget, location and if you'd consider used amps are also really important for us to help you.

I use Ultex sharps. .73, I think.
For strings, I use all D'Addario.
12-60 on my Les Paul (drop B)
10-46 on my Framus (standard)
And I dunno what gauge on my acoustics. The light ones. Blue packet.

Jet City combo.
I used to gig one before I bought my Orange. Did the job very well and was plenty loud, especially if you don't need cleans.

The TT really doesn't do cleans. Even my Dual Terror doesn't do a pristine clean at drummer volumes. It's passable, but theres a bit of grit.

You could also snag a used ESP if you're patient. Like a real one, not LTD.
LTD wouldn't be a bad option either.
