Is the bands in your sig what you play? If so, the BC Rich would be best IMO

^-1. Unless you pay a lot, you're not gonna get a good BC Rich. What's your budget?

Are you really deciding a guitar based on the brand?

Your question could be taken like which is best? a $400 BC rich or a $3000 jackson. You need to specify price you are paying.

I wouldnt buy a BC Rich anyway. The <1000$ models suck, and the USA models are overpriced (3000+)
So choose between Jackson (my favorit), ESP or epiphone based on your preferences. If you mostly play metal, care for good balance AND good upper fret access, go for Jackson or ESP, If you play also rock/blues, the epi's might be more interesting for you.
Be aware that ESP's are expensive. Both Jackson and Epihone have models from 200-1000$, ESP starts at 1200$, but they have a budget production line in Korea called LTD, which has guitars in the cheaper pricerange too. Edwards is also a daughtercompany of ESP, and from what i hear, they make some kickass guitars under 1000$.
If you want to spend ALOT of money, go Jackson USA or CS. They just rule the universe.
