As the title says, I'm looking for a very good fixed bridge metal guitar. (trash, progressive, death and metalcore)
After searching around, I've found some candidates that could fill my collection
But I'm quite sure there must be more fixed bridge metal guitars out there in my price range.. and since I'll be changing tunings a lot (from drop C to half step up), I figured it might be better to get a fixed bridge.
My price range goes up to a max of €1400, but I get a great price reduction in a large music store here (called Piens)! Take the list price (in &euro, multiply it by 0,8 and then multiply it by 0,78, that's the price I get.

The potential guitars I've found:
-ESP Horizon NT Black w/ Seymour Duncan SH-4 and SH1N humbuckers
Listprice: €1902,81 - my price: €1187,35
-ESP Eclipse-II Snow white w/ EMG 81-60
Listprice: €1902,81 - my price: €1187,35
-LTD EC-1000 Snow white w/ EMG 81-60
Listprice: €1188,81 - my price: €714,82
- LTD H-1001 Black w/ EMG 81-85
Listprice: €1129,31 - my price: €704,69

I'll probably switch the current EMG's out for the EMG X-series when they're available here. As for the amp, I'm getting a new tube amp, so it's basicly no prob.

What would you buy? And is there anything else I should definately check out?
(white guitars are even better )

Thanks a lot!

EDIT: good fret access is also important!

Anything wrong with being a white fan?

i found the upper fret access limiting on my Eclipse II so that's why i would say go with the Horizon's but have a play with the Eclipse and you might find that it's not limiting at all.
