Alright, so in a few weeks ill have enough money to but a EX-401DX
But the last couple of weeks i started to listen more funk music etc. And i started looking into some Strats. And my eye fell on a MIM Strat, but i still want some decent metal tones. So i was thinking:

Putt Emg's in my Ec-50, get a tremolo for it., and buy the MIM strat

OR

Just buy the ESP EX-401DX

I use a Boss ME-50 with a Kustom Quad 65DFX

Thnx for the help alreay

buy the esp 401

you get what you pay for, one expensive guitar is better than two bad ones. and getting a tremolo and emg's fitted in any kind of les paul is a horrible idea
Equipment:
PRS SE custom Cherryburst
dean razorback V (green/black) currently on ebay
Digitech Death metal pedal [wanting to sell - £15]
Zoom G1X [wanting to sell - £25]
Line6 UX1 (with metal shop add on)

I would get a better amp first.

The amp is just fine

not if you want to get any kind of use out of EMGs.

EMG + solid state amp / modeller = bad tone

How about this: Get a HSS strat. It'll do metal and funk. I recommend the Fender Lonestar, it is more expensive than a Standard HSS, but has way better pups (You wouldn't need to replace them later on). If it's too pricey, a Standard HSS will be fine, too.

If you don't like that idea, better take your time and see how your taste developes in the next couple of weeks. Maybe you won't be into funk in the near future anymore.

That is true, but I don't see how an MIM Strat is any worse than the LTD. It's just a completely different instrument.


EDIT: I'm stupid, didn't see you where located in the Netherlands. Better links:
