Lately, I have been looking for a nice guitar with a FR to get me started off with a floyd and yet sound good at the same time. The models I first looked at were the ESP 200-250 models. They seemed good, but had that "bad" wood, agathis.

These are the models I was looking at.

From what I hear, its a very dull wood and doesn't provide such a great tone AT ALL. I like heavier "chunkier" metal, (for example, lamb of god) so everyone recommends me mahogany for its thick cleans and deep distortion. So I did a little research and found the Schecter C1-FR. (http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Schecter-?sku=518491)

I would be sacrificing the neck-through for the better tonality from the wood. And quite frankly, I don't know what the hell to do. So if anyone can give me advice, it would help. I'm horrible at this kind of stuff.

Why not save up the extra couple hundred and get the 400 model? I used to want the MH-400 so badly.

You want a neck through for more sustain right? you play metal so couldnt you just use feedback? either way im sure your gonna get this alot so let me be the first. Pick what feels rite.
And look them all up for reviews. If you get other ppls opinions the choice might be a little clearer

Well, I have thought about it a little bit more and I love the idea of the schecter, but what about the neck? Everyone calls them the "baseball bat" necks. For me, I'm used to my Ibanez Wizard II neck. So a neck plays a big role in my decision. Anyone ever been in this position before, and what did it feel like?

But yeah, the mahogany body, active pups and fr sounds like a great deal.
