Ibanez GRG 270 or Ibanez RG 170

Which one should I go for, I play lead and am a die hard Metallica fan.

One has a fixed bridge and the other has a Floyd rose but I cant remember what type it is.

EDIT: the GRG is the one with the Floyd rose and its an Edge III.

Well, are you gonna use a tremolo? If not, go for the 170.
