I'm a heavy metal guitarist and I'm looking into buying a new guitar. Here are my two options:

Jackson DXMG - Brand New - $600

OR

Ibanez S520EX (EMG 81/85 pickups) - Used - $400

Which one would suit my style better and why?

Those are both great guitars for metal.

But even though I'm a HUGE Jackson fan. I'd say the Ibanez S.
It's got active EMG's instead of the HZ's the Jackson has and is 200 bucks cheaper.

Though I love the Jackson necks better than Ibanez, but that's just personal preference.

Also, I think that Jackson model goes used on ebay for about $300.

There's my $0.02.
Jackson DK-2 [2004 MIJ] (EMG 81/SA)
Jackson RR-3 [2007 MIJ] (EMG 81/60)
Ibanez RG370DX [2009] (EMG 81/60)
Epiphone Les Paul Custom [2004] (EMG 81/85)
Ltd/Esp M-17 7-String [2013] (EMG 81-7 set)
Bugera 333XL 120watt Tube Head, Crate BV412 Cab
