Used Schecter Blackjack C1. Particularly one with passive pickups.

In your potential choices you also had a JP70. Are you aware that guitar is a seven string?

I would go for the JP70 in fact, I am planning to get one myself. It's an extremely versatile guitar, and a well-made one, too. Don't expect to get a good signature Jackson in that price range. Nor Ibanez.

I guess i should note these three guitars are on sale at my local shop for 450. they're priced higher regularly.

And my only main concern about the JP70 is the tremolo. it's not locking

Well I played the JP100, IIRC that doesn't have a locking tremolo either and it stayed in tune just fine If they have it a local shop, go try it out, see how it feels, try to play around with the tremolo... you'll see.
