I hate to tell you, but all you are going to get is OPINIONS.....this is pretty much a decision you have to make, cause we aint gonna be playin it
....but if it were me, I would change my preference to the white sm-1 and go for that!
OK EVERYONE SORRY FOR THE CAPS BUT HEY!
THIS IS MY FINAL LIST, OF WHAT GUITAR I WANT, WHAT I CAN AFFORD, AND WHAT I KNOW WILL ALL BE PLAYABLE AXES FOR ME, ALL OF THEM I ACTUALLY LIKE
SO VIEWS OPINIONS ON ALL, IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER THESE ARE THE FINAL LIST
1. KRAMER SM 1 BLACK ( AHEM AHEM NO BIAS)
2. JACKSON SLSXMG (GUN METAL GREY) (X SERIES)
3. LTD ST203 FR (ROSEWOOD FRETBOARD)
4. EPIPHONE PRO FX FLOYD ROSE
5. FENDER STANDARD HSS W FLOYD ROSE
6. FENDER BLACKTOP
GUITAR TONE WISE, I AM NOT BIG ON ONE ARTIST AS SUCH, I USED TO BE MORE METAL, BUT AT THE MOMENT IM MORE INTO AN 80S POP GUITAR SOLO SOUND ( E.G, CHER, MICHAEL BOLTON, RICHARD MARX)
IVE GOT A BEHRINGER PA, MULTI FX AT HOME, SO IVE GOT THE SOUND, WITH A NICE BIT OF CHORUS,
IT JUST NEEDS CLEARING OUT MORE SO THROUGH THE GUITAR.
BOTH THE JACKSON AND KRAMER ARE ACTIVE.
SO I RECKON, IM GOING TO NEED TO HAVE A HSS, I RECKON TWO HUMS WILL BE MUDDY.
SPREAD THIS MESSAGE, AND HELP ME OUT!!
Why say "SORRY FOR ALL THE CAPS", then continue to write in caps?
I'm with Bruce on this one...inevitably, this is YOUR decision.
I can only comment on the Fenders as I've played them...from your list, I'd go with the Fender Blacktop HH Floyd Rose. I've played a couple different Blacktops and have been very pleased with the playability to pricepoint.

I'd get a Jackson X series
