Well, my Christmas present had to go back, big crack on the headstock. ive been looking at these two guitars to replace it;

LTD Viper 407

Or

Ibanez Xiphos 7 string

Planning on tuning the 7th string to A, and i play mostly metal, on this guitar.
Suggestions?

I think the Viper is just beautiful so for looks I'd pick that one. The Xiphos also looks cool but a bit too much for my taste.

the new xiphos coming out in a few weeks is a beast! it has 1 humbucker and 1 single coil )both dimarzo brand name) and they also have 27 frets! and reverse headstock!
