Ok, I'm looking at getting another axe for different styles of play. I guess this would be my metal/harder rock guitar as I own two Teles at the moment.

Right now I'm looking at the following as possibilities, I'm not looking for a bank-breaker, but it has to be good enough to play:

PRS SE Singlecut
PRS SE Custom
ESP LTD H-101
Ibanez GRG170DX


I'm not looking for something ridiculously metal, as I will be playing a range of things with the guitar. I'd like equally good clean/distorted tones. More/less expensive guitars are welcome suggestions, as I'm not really working on a supertight budget per se.

I play pretty much anything, musically. As I said, this would be for the harsher side of my playing.

Edit: As a versatile guitar, should I just forget all the above and get a Strat?

If i would have to pick one of those, i would pick PRS SE Custom or Singlecut.

Don't see why everyone likes the GRG170DX... it has a crappy non-locking trem and pickups are pretty terrible.

What is your max budget ?

You can get a HSS strat, they're pretty versatile but might not cut it for metal.

Yamaha F310 acoustic

What is your amp?

Depending where I am, either a Vox Pathfinder, or a Laney VC 15.

I guess I don't have one. I'd like to spend around 3-600GBP, somewhere in that range. (Around 5-900USD?)

Ok take a look at these
Ibanez RG2EX1 (RGR321EX for Europe)
Ibanez RG321
Yamaha Pacifica 112v
ESP LTD H-251
ESP LTD MH-250 NT

All pretty good, low end LTD's have Agathis bodies which in my opinion aren't great but that's for you to decide. The Pacifica is quite low end but very versatile. RG's are great for metal, not as versatile.
