Actually I'm not too fond of this shape. As I've said before, check on some Schecters, I think they're really great for their price!
MY GEAR:
Synyster Gates Standard (New!!!)
Slammer PAC3 (or something like that).
Amps:
Some crappy Marshell, soon to have a Mesa Boogie...

Of course it's not, but in general I don't like this model (as I've played one in a store once).

It is, however, pretty important. If you're not playing metal, that guitar will most certainly look out of place. It also looks uncomfortable to hold.

Ehh basswood body, and no name pickups. Schecters are better. My Gryphon (lower end model) plays better than nearly every ESP that I've played. Go Schecter for $500. Check out the C-1 Artist.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

You can get a Yamaha Pacifica 612V (strat style) for under 500$ or a Yamaha AES620 (somewhat like an LP) for about 540$. They both have a Seymour Duncan JB in the bridge. You can't get anything better sounding in that price range. Not to mention all the fine Ibanez guitars you can get for 500$.

I would have to disagree with you there. I have a C/SH1, and it is not the best quality. It cost over $700, and the gold is rubbing off of the hardware, the pick-ups are SD Designed, not SD's, and the stock tuners blow. The only thing I love about it is the neck and the neck joint, other than that, there are better guitars then Schecters for $500.

IF you will buy used, you can get some nice strats or Epi LP's round that price. Also a PRS SE model, if you like those.
