B.C. Rich has several Warlock and Mockingbird models in your price range, and Epi has Les Pauls, SGs, and a few others. If you have any of those brands at a shop near you, go try them out and see what you like best.

Buy used, you can get much better gear with your budget that way.

Look for an Epiphone Les Paul Standard.
And as far as the amplifier goes, look for a Peavey Vypyr 30.

Agreed. Used gear can be a great way to go, especially in the early going. However, with a $400 budget, the options can be pretty limited, even in the used bracket.

I heard that ESP LTD EC packs are really good, can't get much more metal than ESP

No what brand of amp and which model is what he meant.

If 400 is your budget for the guitar and amp, don't get a BC Rich. They do make some nice guitars, but the cheaper <$700 new BC Rich guitars are pretty bad.

The Epi LP standard is a pretty nice guitar, especially if it is your first electric.

For amps, look for a used Peavey Vypyr 30. It sounds pretty good for a cheap amp and will do many different styles well.

LTD starter packs are junk. As with any starter pack.

I'd just get an Epiphone LP Standard and a Vypyr.

Yeah starter packs are pretty horrid. The LTD's are decent, but not the lower series. The LTD 300 series and up are decent most of the time, the LTD 10/50/100 series are very hit or miss.

While I have no suggestions of my own to offer, I have to disagree with the suggestions to get an LP because I don't believe any model takes very well to heavy metal.

If you want a guitar for heavy metal, LTD is a solid choice. I have an EC-50, and it plays great when it comes to metal, and, at least in my experience, handles cleans really well also. The pickups sound really good through every amp I've played it through. As for the amp, I can't really give much advice in the way of inexpensive. The only thing I can really suggest is a Fender Mustang.

I would also like to second the people who suggest to look at used gear.

I'm pretty sure Willie Adler uses ESP and Mark Morton uses Jackson.

The best advice I can give is don't buy junk like a starter pack. If you do, you'll end up dealing with guitar issues rather than learning to play. There are inexpensive alternatives out there that are good starter guitars. Squire comes to mind. I picked up a squire affinity a few years ago for my kid and it has been great as a starter guitar. If you can't afford it now, wait and save up. Used is always a good option, especially on lower end guitars because a lot of people buy them and end up never using them. Hence, the reason for selling.

This is the stupidest thing I've ever read in a long time.

I'm not even going to bother listing all the heavy metal artists who use Les Pauls along with Les Paul models that are clearly intended for the heavy metal market. You should simply know better than for me to list them out for you.

To post ignorant stuff like that, he'd do better if he didn't even post at all.
