Damn dude I remember when the original hellraiser avenger was like $800. I would go with the avenger dude my friend had one that was real nice but then he moved and stopped playing guitar.

It was sad because he had just gotten a strat played by clapton (not sig) that played nice and had like 4 other guitars

well, it comes down to if you want a Floyd Rose or not, and if you want EMG pickups or not, and a V-shape guitar or not.
what are your influences (I'm expecting quite a bit of metal)

Check out the scheckter tempest since your leaning to that brand. Its a solid guitar. But it really depends on what sound your going for.

hey guys! well, yeah, randomhero nailed it xp. Influences: Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold, SOAD, Megadeth, and i also like GreenDay

I really love how V's look, and I'd definitely would LOVE a FR, but I don't know about the EMGs, they're "lifeless" . So, what would you recommend for 500-600 with a FR and without EMGs? (it's gotta be sexy too )

Don't buy a guitar for its looks.
Buy it for tone and playability.
You can get screwed pretty badly if you buy an epiphone, but if you take care of it right it can be your best guitar.

I'd go for the Hellraiser, but that's purely based on the fact i haven't played an Avenger

You could check out some of the randy rhoads jacksons. I've played a few and they're pretty damn nice with no emg's. Depending on which model you look at they will either have seymour duncans or duncan designed

EDIT: I agree with David, I have a Schecter Tempest and It suits me just great, I'm looking at a V but I still love it.

Have you tried these all out? Don't buy a guitar for looks or tone. Buy a guitar for feel and quality (if your price is right). You can always change pickups, and an amp is most of your tone anyway. Make sure you love playing the guitar above all else.
