Well, I'm probably gonna get a new guitar in a few months.
Its a long time, but I'm trying to make sure I get the perfect choice.

I play metal, metalcore, southern hardcore, a little alternative-ish stuff.

Basically stuff like

Darkest Hour
Anberlin
Coheed And Cambria
Parkway Drive

So basically a guitar that can do metal great, but still pull of the mellow stuff/normal rock stuff like Coheed And Anberlin, spitalfield, etc.

I'm considering

Shecter C-1 classic
Shecter Hellraiser
ESP LTD EC 1000

still not sure, seeing its awhile from now, but any ideas?

Budget - 900, or around

do a epiphone explorer. I played one in guitar center and the first thing I played on it was "A Favor House Atlantic" by Coheed and Cambria. It sounded totally tubular!

Go see U2, then you can say you contributed money to Bono's giant Irish tower built out of the blood, tears, and the hopes of African children.

Don't listen to anybody about Epiphones, I spent 300 dollars on one and it sounds amazing. If you spend 900 dollars on one it should be flawless, and they are good on many of the genres.
No means maybe

I've never been huge on Epiphones. My friend has an Epiphone SG which I despise, the feel, the tone, just eh, I don't like it.

I'll try some at GC though.

Still taking ideas haha

Epi Explorer. The SG's neck is unbalanced, that's why. The rest of the Epi's aren't.

maybe an ESP Ex-400?

it's got the explorer shape,
problem is it's got an emg 60/81 set

but claudio From Coheed uses an 81/85 set

so maybe a problem? maybe not
