Question Great axes for under 700$ !

I am currently look for a guitar for 700$ or under.

I mostly play things from alternative rock to classic rock leads to heavier stuff like metallica. I am currently interested in the ESP LTD MH-350NT STBLK, it has an EMG 81 & 85 in its bridge and neck positions, I will most likely go with this guitar, so if any one has played it let me know if its worth the money! I dont need any kind of tremelo, I prefer ESP guitars, but I may be willing to go for something else. I really like the EMG 81 & 85 setup, and preferably 24 frets. I use a Peavey Vypyr amp, so if you guys know anything thats sounds amazing through that, go ahead and let me know!

I just need general suggestions that meet most of these criteria, it doesnt have to follow all the criteria, but needs to be along those lines, and of course, have heavier tones.

Thanks to all who suggest,

If you have no problem going used then you can score a 1000 series LTD for 700$. The 1000 series will blow away the 350 with better construction and hardware like tonepros bridges or FR1000 trems if you get a floyd axe. I did some digging and found you some axes worth checking out. There's more out there but go check out GC used website among others like Sam Ash's used section. Didn't see you don't want a trem but they can be blocked very easily

Used 1000 anything over a new 350 any day as far as ESP goes. So much nicer.
