Hi UG

I'm looking to get a new guitar probably in the new year and im just starting to do some research on some stuff. I've been playing for 4 1/2 years and have had the same guitar since i started. although its an amzing guitar (Epiphone LP custom Midnight) im looking to get something lighter ie. an Esp Viper or a Epi prophecy SG.
(I play mainly hardcore, metalcore, grindcore, deathmetal (in that order))

My wants are.

Lighter then an lp.
Active EMG pickups
NO TREM BAR
maximum price probably $1000 AUD
Would like SG shape but not needed.

Suggestions please


EDIT: should mention it dosnt have to be a really good quality guitar... my LP is perfect. Just need a midrange light guitar to gig with.

Why not drop a pair of EMG's into a Epi G-400? I'm not sure how AUD exchanges to USD, but maybe even a low end Gibson G-400. Both are great guitars.

Edit: btw, the ESP Viper isn't that great... at least to my ears. It has too much bite and not enough beef.
