Generally amps that work in the bedroom and on stage get their distortion from the preamp. The tone you're looking for is probably a good amount of poweramp distortion.

So just keep that in mind...

It's not really surprising that EMGs alone won't overdrive a 40W amp. That's a decent amount of headroom.

+1, I played a DC127 yesterday, actually. Nice guitar, definitely quality. Didn't floor me or anything - hence the importance of trying to find something that clicks in your hands.

As mentioned above, there's a few used TH30s for $800 on GC right now. I think it would be better suited for you.

Put an EQ in the loop like an MXR 10 Band and that will become your solo boost.

Why do you need 3 channels then?

Give us examples of exactly what you consider "rock" "Hard rock" and "blues". Link songs that have tone you'd like to get close to.

No, the KH has a neck that is more similar to the Ibanez. It is thinner than flatter than what the M-II has, but it's not as thin or flat as the Ibanez.

Peavey 6505+ 112 is a 1x12 combo made in China (hence why the price is only half of what the 6505+ head costs, which is made in America).

You're not going to get a halfstack for deathcore for $500. Full stop. A good cab used will run you almost $500 alone. And heads are usually more expensive.
