You'll definitely want a new amp as well. What's your budget?

Step one: Disregard other posters
Step two: Go buy a Les Paul
Step three: Mock silly forum posters with dissenting opinions

What's your budget like? If you don't mind the feel of your current guitar, I'd hold off on getting a new one and focus on getting a good amp. For the price of that Schechter, you could grab a pretty sweep amp that I can guarantee will improve your sound more than a new instrument will.

you need a new amp. EMG's are not going to solve your tone issues through a cheap little amp- crappy amps= crappy tone regardless of the guitar/pickups feeding them a signal.

your money will go much further if you pop for a new amp rather than a new guitar

Thank you for reply ^^

I have budget for new amp around 150usd (5,000 THB. I live in Thailand and i usually buy a secondhand instument.). I usually play in studio with my band and mini amp for practice at home .I see a secondhand LINE6 Spider IV 15 around 120usd(4,000THB.) It ok ? for replace my old amp

but now someone want to swap a LTD FX-400 with my Schecter. Should swap or not ? (I know I have to try by myself but i just want to know ^^)

Thank you

You should get a Peavey Vypyr. They're great practice amps; so much better than Line6 Spiders.

After that, your guitar is your choice. I feel like the Synyster Custom Standard would be better than the LTD FX-400, though.

With a Peavey Vypyr, you won't need a pedal. It has plenty of distortion built in, so you could sell the metal muff for a little more cash.
