Which one is better? I want a versatile guitar that can handle metal, hard rock and blues.

Are there any other options besides these two? I can shelve out $1500 or slightly more.

Also how does the Boss GT-10 measure up against individual effect pedals? Do you think it's a good buy?

I don't think the EMG's of the ESP will do blues very well but im sure it will work for the other 2.
