I want to buy a 2nd guitar. I play blues, classic rock, pop-punk, hardcore and a little bit of metal. I've narrowed it down to 4 guitars:

Ibanez S470 $300
Ibanez RG550 $300
Ibanez GAX70 $160
Aria Pro ii M-650 $200

There's also an ESP LTD but I can't seem to id the model. All are being sold used. Do you guys recommend I buy the RG550 or S470, wait a while then change the pups? Or I get the GAX or the Aria Pro ii then immediately change the pups on them? I've only tried the GAX but it sounds good enough. What do you guys recommend of the 4(5)?

I'm sorry if you guys are bothered by the number of posts about this.

I can't differentiate between the types of trems. Anything would do.
