OK, here are my options:
1. Put New pickups in my LP and buy a line 6 pod effects
2. Keep the LP, and Buy a schecter hell raiser
3. Buy the hell raiser and line 6, and sell my LP
My LP's neck pup is not working, and I want to either replace both and get a line 6 podxt, or forget it and get a hellraiser. What I want is to be able to play shred and metal, while still being able to clean things up without much distortion...

I assume you're playing just open strings, so not to scratch your frets.

I absolutely hate the POD...
but what specific sound do you want?

A "shred and metal" sound can be alot.

Ibanez RGR320 with Lo-Edge Pro bridge and scalloped fretboard

Hellraiser with EMG's doesn't sound the best totally clean, I got rid of mine awhile ago - I'd put in a JB/59 combo in the Gibson Les Paul Special, and get a PodXT Live (the floor version), I personally like the Line 6 stuff better than the Boss GT stuff, but that's a never-ending debate here.

I'm personally getting away from Chinese and Korean made guitars across the board - people like us typically don't hang onto our gear forever, and that stuff has such lousy resale value (typically 50% of the new price, more or less), whereas American and Japanese stuff (Gibson, Fender, real ESP, Ibanez Prestige, etc.) seems to hold closer to their value for years.

Agreed, ditch the pod idea and get a sweet amp.

Your Les Paul's pickup is fine - the problem is either with the wiring or one of the components, the selector switch is the most likely culprit withthe pots a distant second.

Whats the budget? If i were you, i'd get the Hellraiser. That Mesa is a great amp. No Line 6 though, they sound so sterile.
