I want to say something.
When I bought my Trad, I expected it to be a very good guitar, seeing as it's worth in the 2ks. I bought it during the christmas sales on MF, and I got it for 1599. I was a bit disappointed because the same deal had occured for the Standard the week before and I didn't jump on it.
I thought I'd have it and barely play it, just be happy I finally had an actual high-end guitar (not counting my MM Silhouette).
I've always aligned all my guitars on a rack, keeping only my more precious ones in hard cases, as I don't want to always have to open a case to take the guitar out and play. In the case of the Trad however, even though I have 9 guitars aligned on a rack next to me and ready to play, I always want to take the case, open it, attach the strap, tune it, and play. It's much longer, but it feels worth it.
Now that the honey moon period is over, this guitar is so effing amazing.

Grab a new (or used if you're willing to go used to lower your cost by a lot) LTD EC-1000. I bought a used one last week for $900 (these cost over $1200 new where I live) and I can't say enough good things about these. Mine was upgraded with DiMarzio Air Classic and Air Zone pickups and it's one of the best guitars I have ever played. I was upgrading from a 2006 Epiphone LP Custom with Gibson pickups and the difference is ridiculous. Much better build quality and such a good neck.
These come new with either EMGs or Seymour Duncans which are both perfectly suited for all rock and metal

What he said. The necks on these are really nice. The full on ESP's are also available on closeout for a bit more. The Eclipse can be had in Seattle for $1400 right now. Beautiful guitar.

These guitars are honestly incredible. I have not yet played a Gibson Les Paul that beats this LTD which says alot. Built in Korea but my god these with a pickup upgrade are a keeper for sure.

here's proof that it sounds great (atleast through a mesa :P). That is my exact guitar that the guitar player on the right is playing (this was recorded not too long before he sold me the guitar)

.....yeah the better top end prestige ones on eBay

I don't know what else that's as good or as cheap is out there at the moment that is also not a big standard style or as pretty to look at.

There was a Rasmus Guthrie Govan on the bay for about 500, that might be worth hunting for.
