Id tell him to try out an AXL guitar, maybe a FireAxe or a Jacknife. Ibanez SZ320GD looks good. Maybe an Ibanez RG3EXQM1. Schecter has a Damien 6 with EMG H4/H4a pickups seems like a good choice as well. Hagstrom also has some cool guitars for a bit less than $350.

Ibanez RG2EX1... the Schecter Damien 6 is also nice, but a little bit out of price range.

i would suggest the rg2ex,i have it and i'm pretty happy with it.i just switched out the stock pickups with dimarzios though and i believe it will hold it's ground when compared to higher value guitars.

i've also heard good reviews about the rg321mhg,you might also want to look into that.
just go to your local shop and try out both of them and see which one feels better to you

but if you have more money to spend a little later(about $150-180) you might want to get the rg2ex and switch out the pickups and it would be a pretty good metal guitar,it doesn't have a locking trem though

In this price range, body woods are very important since it's impossible to change it while pups are easily swapped out. Therefore, I would check out Ibanez rather than LTD or Bc Rich. Mahogany and basswood > agathis.

3 brands to look into if your into metal...

Schecter
Ibanez
And my personal favorite...

Bc Rich

I've got a BC Rich Platnium Bich with a dimebucker in the bridge and its well hard.
My only complaints is that its not neck-through and it doesn't have a floyd rose tremmelo on it.

Three Brands for metal :
Schecter
Ibanez
ESP

I personally hate B.C Rich unless it's a high end.
