As the title says, I'm looking to upgrade my beginners rig. I've got a thread going in the accessories forum dedicated to my amp decision, but I also need some help deciding on a good guitar for me. Here's basically what I'm looking for...

Two Humbuckers (possibly EMGs, but I don't know too much about them...)
24 Frets (not too big a deal)
Non - locking bridge (I like to change my tuning a lot)

As far as sound goes, I'm looking for something that can put out distorted tones similar like Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold, Sum 41 (they're edgier stuff, like Chuck), and some Guns N' Roses. Also, as a side not, some cleans like Pink Floyd, Eagles, and Foo Fighters (I LOVE the clean part in the Pretender).

Budget: around $500 - $700. I can possibly move some over from my amp fund, but I'd prefer to keep it somewhere in that range

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Also, I'd like to know if the EMGs would work for this style of music.

Looking at your avatar, why not a used Epi Toni Iommi SG?


well, um, my avatars actually a ESP Viper. And if thats not what you meant then, I don't want one because my friend has one, and it just doesn't seem to fit my style all that well, I don't really know why...

Why not? It basically has everything you're asking for. My friend has a Strat, didn't stop me from buying one.
