Ok well im gonna probably buy a new guitar, and I was looking at some ESP stuff and it says the neck on the MH-1000 is "set thru"

im wondering if this is any different than neck-thru cause I mostly wanted a neck-thru guitar (im mostly looking at the xiphos)

and as another question, what guitar would be better for the genres of, deathmetal, hardcore, metal, melo-death etc. (mostly stuff for drop C)



Schecter Hellraiser

Jackson dinky

or Ibanez Xiphos

thanks in advance guys.
I hear good things about the Hellraiser, my friend has one and loves it. Schecters are growing on me, and Im down to a C-1 myself, or an Ibanez S520 or an RG4.
