I'm wondering why you have an ESP without a tremolo and all the others have one.

I'd go for an ESP MH-400 or an Ibanez S series. Both guitars are exceptional.
Give www.rondomusic.com a look too, Agiles are low in price but good on quality.

Have you considered a 7 string?

Herman Li from Dragonforce uses the Ibanez S series...prestige models of course. But they realy aren't all that different.

Zparticus sounds biased, especially since the ESP and Hellraiser have the same pickups, wood and amount of frets. Not to mention they are sister companies.

I'm a little too dead set on one of the new Ibanez models to give you an unbaised answer. Schecter and ESP both build a great guitar, you woudn't be disappointed with either.

My #1 choice would still be the Ibanez S series but its your decision. Go bug your local guitar store and play whatever you can get your hands on for 20 minutes or more and see what suits you best, all of us on the forums can do, is give you suggestions. Its your decision to what you like.
