So a while ago I posted a thread about a new guitar, I tried all of the guitars and none of them satisfied my wants in the guitar. I was thinking of a new guitar a dean stealth guitar two tone. And switching the pickup with the MKH86, from trivium, because they are my favorite band. here are the links to all the other threads with the guitar stuff. I just need to know is this a good buy, should I switch the pickups, and that I am not getting ripped.

I addressed a lot of this mainly in the first thread but here it is, I play both rythym and lead in a hard rock/metal/alternative rock band.
Tonality:
I would like a nice tone but it is not a necessity mainly because I have a HSS strat and a PRS SE Custom. I mainly would like it to be play heavier music like Pantera, Trivium, Metallica.

Weight:
Because of the back surgery I had, my back can't support more then probably 12 pounds so that is about it, less is better.

Necks:
Thin or thick? Thin is more preferred but I can deal with thick.
Wide or Narrow? No preference
Radius, flater or rounder? Flatter is more preferred but still can deal with rounder
Frets, do you want 21,22,24? 22, or 24
Inlays, what kind if any do you want? doesn't matter

Bridge:
Anything but a floyd rose or double locking tremelo whichever you would like to call it, i change a lot of tunning so I need something that isn't a pain in the you know what to tune.

Pickups:
I really don't know that much about pickups, but as long as they can play pantera, trivium, metallica, AX7, etc. well and give a good crunchy palm mute, that is what I care about.
vvv What kind or pickup setup vvv
Preferably HH
Finish: doesn't matter
What kind of paintjob? doesn't matter

Budget:
How much of said currency are you willing to spend torwards this guitar? $1000 US dollars or less, but I can spend up to 1200 just would not really want to...
Also no shecter guitars.. or Flying V's

also to what I posted before, remember that if I get the dean stealth I would be changing the pickup to the Matt Heafy signature pickup.

No Schecters or Flying Vs?!?!?!?
Good because ive never recomended either.

http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Ibanez-RG120-Eletric-Guitar?sku=518870
Its a fixed Bridge, comes installed right away with true EMG 81 and 85 pickups.
Its also light as a feather.
The neck is nice and thin.
Neck-thru which essentially makes the top frets very easy to access.
24 frets, off set dot inlays.

Its essentially everything you asked for.

I tried the Ibanez and so far, it is the guitar I like most, however I want to make sure I don't make a mistake, so as far as the dean stealth that I posted up before, I would like to change the dimebucker for another pickup, preferablly the Matt Heafy one I posted before. However are there any other pickups I should try that would give me a sound that I want instead of that dimebucker. BTW the only reason I don't want the dimebucker is because it is way to muddy for my taste.
