I've been playing guitar for a few years now and I'm still using my squier Strat. I"ve been considering a new guitar in the $400-$800 price range. I was thinking of buying a esp 400vf or the new esp 401vf with duncans. I would like a les paul type body but anything would work. Play mostly metal but also play jazz, blues, and other forms of rock music. Any suggestions would be aprreciated

The only thing to do really is go down to a guitar shop and try those models out, then have a look at some similar guitars. Personally if I were you I would go for the 400VF, but my opinion is based purely on looks, I'm not into the super-strat thing.
