I know this might not be an issue for some but i would prefer a nut size of 43mm / tried 42mm and i was a bit cramped having big hand and finger don't help , I noted ESP have mostly 42mm nuts I think Ibanez do 43mm so I think i might get an Ibanez for the fact it will have a wider nut its a shame really cuz i was going to get the ESP Horizon NT-II . I am not sure what Ibanez model to get

Yeah as has been said, ibanez prestiges (or j customs if you're very lucky) and USA Jacksons would be the main rivals to ESP from the big guys.

Vigiers are very nice too, some of the cheaper Suhrs might be under budget, too. Maybe USA charvels as well. French-made Lags as well (though I've only tried the cheaper Chinese-made ones). A USA BC Rich Gunslinger might be under budget too, but whether you'll actually find one in the UK, I dunno. You'd probably have to import from the USA (and again, like with Lag, I've only tried the cheaper ones).

Probably some other very obvious ones I'm forgetting

EDIT: if you're worried about the nut then Vigier has the smaller 42mm nut. Lag maybe too, I'm not 100% on that. The USA Jacksons should be 43mm. The vast majority of the Ibanezes are 43mm but an odd model here and there over the years has been 42mm so that's worth bearing in mind. Charvel normally is 43mm I think. Suhr you normally have the option of nut width so it just depends on which one you come across. I think the BC Riches are normally wider too (but again, check to be sure).

Almost any of the Ibanez prestiges should be good. If you see one you like the look of post it here and we can confirm.

Can you actually get a Vigier for £1500?

I'm in the USA, and I've been lusting after their Surfreter for at least a decade. Those cost @$3000, last I checked...

^ Yeah the cheaper models are under £1500. At least if you get luckyish.

I got my bass for £500
