Re: Which guitar next?
ESP Eclipse II or even an EC1000 for under $800 would work for your needs if you want an ESP.
i have a pair of Explorers and they rock pretty hard and make a great stage guitar for the looks and stability. really can't say Gibson is very spot-on with their finishing (frets mostly). once you have it touched up by a tech (leveled, smoothed, polished) you have a monster on your hands that screams ROCK.
Hamer has some amazing guitars that are by far the nicest i've played under $2000. check out their website.
don't forget to check out some of the banners at the top for customs - you might get the guitar of your dreams for a few cents more thru some of those guys. good luck and let us know what you decide.
