So I used to play electric guitar for 4-5 years but then stopped for the last 3 or so and im finally getting back into it. Ive gone through a sub $100 knock off brand to a BC rich warlock. Im just looking for a nice guitar to play at home to the songs i like, budget is about $900 AUD not including an amplifier.
Ive been looking into ibanez/schecter guitars but I honestly have no idea whats good/bad for the type of genres i like to play. Any thoughts would be much appreciated!

BUDGET: $900ish AUD

GENRES: Metal/punk rock/hard rock

ARTISTS: August burns red/Taking back sunday/foo fighters and everything in between

LOCATION: Sydney

Guitars im contemplating are schecter stealth c-1/damien elite 6 (same price) and the esp ltd ec-331. Any other guitars im forgetting about which are around this price point/good deals? thanks in advance!

Websites/shops i am in close proximity to are

I have not played either guitar. I would recommend something with Alnico pickups because they have a better clean sound which will help with Foo Fighters and Taking back Sunday kind of stuff. Since you are looking for a fixed bridge guitar one of these might suit you too.

I have one it is a great player and sounds great. (mine is a AR 325) It is in the same price range as the guitars you showed.

Can't go wrong with the EC's, good all round guitar for most what you are looking for in music. My EC is my main stay guitar.

look for a used EC400. they are better than the 401's and cheaper models.

FWIW, i bought an EC400, then a EC1000, THEN, a EC401. the playability and tone of the 400 and 1000 were pretty much identical. the EC1000's look a little prettier though (although they have way to much abalone). te EC401 was a piece of shit compared to the others.

they are all long gone now though.
