Hi, I Need a new guitar. I have a crappy epiphone les paul, it plays nice bluesy music but sucks at anything else. I'm a die - hard metal and my type of playing is Metal Lead- Guitar. I went to the local music store and found a couple of LTD's i liked (i didn't try them out to little time) There was some ESP's to, but they were WAY to expensive. Here is a list of those i liked (Ranked from most liked):

MH-250 (It looks SWEET) http://www.zzounds.com/item--ESPMH250

KH-202(Kirk Hammett Guitar) http://www.zzounds.com/item--ESPKH202

Viper-400 (Cool looks but has no tremolo ) http://www.zzounds.com/item--ESPVP400

F-250 (Sweet looks) http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/ESP-LTD-F250-Electric-Guitar?sku=516663

Please make my choice easier and note i wont be spending more money on a guitar than these cost.

BTW! Does someone have a link to a American Guitar Store that ships internationally? (I save ALOT then)
the viper-400 is the best quality out of them all, but looks matter more to you, so idk
viper, the emgs are the most metal pickups you can get

I will have to disagree. I have an EC- 1000 and a M- 200. The 200 sounds as good if not better than the 1000, and it was half the price.
What if i put EMG 81/85 Pickups in the MH-250 Would that make it one of the best? i was thinking of doing that anyways :P
I just got an FX-260 (it's an explorer) which is pretty sweet. If you want looks you should check it out.

400 models or above. The tremelo systems on those guitars you are looking at are not worth it anyway. If you want a trem, get a high quality one. You will regret having a crappy trem.
