    Wah-lah! In these instances instinct works best.

    Of course, that doesn't mean your instinct is always right. :)

    What type of metal? Metallica/Anthrax type metal would lean more towards the LP. Whereas Megadeth type metal would lean towards the Schecter.

    I'd maybe choose the Schecter if it wasn't for the extra long 26-1/2" scale.

    I can deal with 24-3/4" or 25-1/2" scale necks just fine, but my reach isn't that good, so I wouldn't want a longer scale.

    Seems like the Schecter would be better for that. YMMV.
