I think that you should try them and decide which you like best. They are similar in a respect but they are also radically different. The Saber has a thinner, flatter neck and the ZR trem which uses ball-bearings instead of knife edges. The MH-400 is probably the lowest value of the 3 and i'd assume has the cheapest bridge of the 3 as well. The Hellraiser has a thicker neck (a bit, not as much as people over-exaggerate about here), but the profile is quite a bit different from an ibanez.

yea i am looking for something that is great for shredding, a metalcore type of rig!
but can also be considerably flexible as well.

Yeah, the S series is your best bet for that style of music.

Wow, they're all great guitars. I'd go with the Schecter, it has Original Floyd Rose right?

I think they used to if im not mistaken.

I would go ibanez but it may need new pickups

For me it's a toss up between the Schecter and the Ibanez. The ESP is basically the same guitar as the schecter without the OFR and I think the Schecter has coil split on the EMGs.

Both guitars can be found in 90% of guitar centers, many local stores tend to have both or either brand as well.

I'd go for a new Schecter unless you can find a used one with the updated EMG's.
