Like I said earlier, try out an Epi Les Paul standard. Then pimp it out with whatever pickups you want. It's got grovers tuners on it, but I don't know if you like the color and everything. You could put some money into that and have a great metal guitar (may I suggest the EMG Zakk Wylde set, although many people fear active pickups). So a Epi LP standard with EMGs would cost you around $600 USD. Or you could go for a Epi Lp custom and pimp IT out for and even nicer axe. That one with EMGs would be around $800 USD. Or maybe if you want the word Gibson on your headstock you could go for the Gibson sg Special or get the Faded special and then put some awesome pickups on that one. Those are my MAIN suggestions so far.

By the way, all of those have stopbar tailpieces and TOM bridges. String changes can't be any easier with those.
