Right, i went to my local guitar store asking if they could order in any Epi G400s but they said that Gibson stopped using their supplier and they have to apply for a Gibson licence...which costs loads.

So, im looking for something around the £200-£250, humbucker guitar which can handle the AC/DC, Aerosmith, kinda crunchy chords to a Metallica-Master Of Puppets thing. Im not interested in the cleans at all, because i have a Squier for that.

Amp is a Peavey Backstage at the moment but im thinking of getting a Vox AD30VT or AD50VT or saving up for a Valveking soon. Sorry for asking so much >.<

Take a look at the Ibanez RG321 as well as the ART120 and ART320.
To be honest, you require your guitar to cover a broad basis of styles here, but those three should handle all of them (and anything in between) well enough. The RG321 has a thinner neck and more frets, while the ART guitars are heavier build and add more 'oomph' to your tone.

EDIT: Check out these two as well:

The Pacifica has a slightly different pickup configuration than the other guitars, the middle pickup gives you a lot more sonic possibilities. It can do pretty much anything.
The RGX is extremely light and comfortable. I know the looks are sort of love or hate, but it's definitely a design you don't see any day. It sounds excellent, too!

Oh sorry i forgot to mention this in the first post. I can get 50% off all ESP guitars because my sisters boyfriend is endorsed by them. I dunno if that helps or not

I tried one of those today actually through a Line 6 Spider (i cant remember which one, it was 100 watt i think). It was quite nice, neck was great and it sounded really good. Only complaint was sometimes it went quite for a few seconds which was a bit weird but otherwise i did like it.

That's just a problem that occurs when the wiring is damaged, nothing tragic. It can be fixed easily. But it was rather the cable you used I think. ESP's tend to be quality build, you usually won't have any problems with them. Think about the tremolo though, if you don't need it anyway, you're just wasting money on a useless feature. Those Double Locking trems are a bitch to set up properly.
