Hey guys,

Im looking to buy a new guitar, and hopefully you guys can help me choose

To give you an idea of what sort of music i want to sound like:

Architects: http://www.myspace.com/architectsuk
Johnny Truant: http://www.myspace.com/johnnytruant
Killswitch Engage
As I Lay Dying


Im looking for a hard tailed guitar, and im not a fan of "V's"
EMG's look look/sound pretty sweet, not a must have though.
My budget is around £400/$800

What do you think to these?

Washburn X50 Pro FE (the guitar looks brown in this photo but its actually trans black : http://www.richtonemusic.co.uk/guitars-1/electric-guitars-2/washburn-x50-pro-fe-electric-guitar-199.html?currency=GBP

Jackson DKMGT : http://www.reidys.com/index.pl?submit=View_PLU&PLU=1335

ESP LTD Viper 400 : http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/en/viper-400/66330

Any guitars you can think of?

Cheers guys
schecter c-1 hellraiser w/ or w/out floyd rose its a great guitar. picked mine up for 700$ i believe its 850$ with a floyd
Vipers are very sweet guitars. I played one about a week ago and the sound was great. Not top heavy like SGs and felt really nice
My metal is more br00t4lz than yours

Squier Strat
ESP B-10 Bass
Peavey Backstage
All 3 of those guitars are great. They are solid in terms of specs and generally good craftmanship. Really, it's up to you to decide what shape you like, and whether you want a bolt on neck or not (DKMGT has a bolt on).
