I have posted before on some guitars and was pretty set on an ESP ltd ex400. I was aslo looking at the Jim Root Tele, but it just seems like quite a bit for don't want to pay more for the sig. I like the feel of the neck and just don't know what to do at this point. I got a bit afraid of the EX for standing up and don't know if it's going to be unbalanced as I played it sitting down not strapped. So I was thinking about the EC 500.

Here's the list of guitars:
1. ESP ltd Ex 400
2. Jim Root Tele
3. ESP ltd Ec 500
4. Schecter C-1 Hellraiser
5. Schecter Avenger limited edition leatherface(texas chainsaw masacare, with EMG's added)

Feel free to add to this list
I really like the feel of the necks on all three, especially the Tele. I play metal and will be playing through a tube amp(need that too)Krank rev jr., ENGL fireball, or something else. My buddy is pushing toward a line 6 spider or B-52

Depending on the shop 950 to 900. A lot of places are out of stock at the moment.

I like slipknot but I am not one to buy something just for the name associated with it as the price is usally more as others have posted in my other postings. I like it for the EMGs and the simplicity of the guitar, as well as the locking tuners. The reason I am hesitant is the price, it's about 250 more and don't know if it's worth that much more than those ESP's?

esp , the tele is nice,nut for 250 u could switch the pickups,try them out tho,i think the tele is a bit overpriced,i dislike fenders because of the pricing they do

Look at an ibanez 320sz, there quite nice, not heavy, good neck. And my guitar teacher said it was a good price/quality guitar.

the tele has an EMG 81 and a 60 just like the ESPs. I liked the feel of the C neck, and the sound of the emgs. I think for a side by side, the tremelo, free case, and locking tuners are what you gain with the Tele and just don't know if the 250 or so can be justified with those items. I had also heard that mexico fenders are better quality than the Korean ESPs, is this true?

I love the LTD EC series. I used to have a EC-500 in black cherry but traded it for a EC-400vf in faded cherry. I love the PUP's in the 400VF and the heavier body.

I was thinking of the Avenger Chainsaw Masacare limited Edition, with EMGs. That tele is super hard to find, everyone is out of stock. Any other fixed bridge guitars that are awesome for metal, or opinions on those listed?

get the tele if you can find it if its feels good to you probable worth the extra
also advise youre buddy to get the b-52 they are pretty good amps better than the spider

What would be better between these two, Esp ltd Ex400 and Ibanez ICT700(white iceman, no floyd, just string through)?
