I have had my eye on these basses for playing metal/rock stuff. I'm leaning towards Yamaha but what do you think?
I have had the Yamaha for 2 years and it has been pretty ****ing amazing. Good variety of tones and shit. Not sure about the ESP though. I would go with the Yamaha cos I have had no problems with it at all. Also, lower end ESPs usually aren't too good as the look of the guitar accounts for a fair bit of the price.

Try them both out, and see which you prefer though. That is the best way
I would say yamaha, i started on one and it lasted me really well
