Find a dealer *somewhere* where you can try um. I went to Guildford near London to try my new guitar (I live in bristol, about 100 miles away).

If you really can't/can't be arsed, my vote is the Alexi - 600, as it's the only one on that listed that I've played myself. And it was awesome.

alexi-600 does look pretty badass but im not sure whether the one emg hz will leave it a one trick pony, also if i ordered online can i get them to setup with a specific tuning and strings? or is it just delivered from factory setup

GAK, as far as I know, deliver with factory setup. You could always email them to find out.

What genre(s) of music will you be playing? Because, for example, the Alexi isnt gunna be particularly good at country lol. It's pretty much rock and metal only. And the lack of a neck pickup isnt bad if you never use the neck pickup.

The MH-1000 comes with ESP Locking tuners, the MH-1000FR (the one TS is looking at) comes with grover non-locking tuners, as it has a locking nut

I have the LTD MH-1000QM non floyde and it is a great guitar.

I would choose the MH or the Alexi guitar.
