Re: Help on choosing a new guitar!
RG's are great for many kinds of music. I do Jazz Fusion and Maiden in the same setlist. The guits you mentioned are great. The bad news is that the pu's aren't top quality. You won't have to worry about this until you really start to dig in with your chops though. They're sort of thin. However It'll hold up just fine up to the point where you could go on a tour with them with a high quality amp. Take those into consideration, and if you aren't satisfied with these guits, go for ESP/LTD or Jackson.
