I own one LTD that I never play because it feels cheap and the neck is chunky compared to my Jacksons. That said, I'm probably gonna give them another shot with the black metal series Arrow. It has a floyd though. Can't speak much for Epiphone, have an Explorer that's broken. I remember it playing fast, probably cause of the shorter scale, but I didn't like the neck shape. I have a Dean V that rips, plays great, but it's a discontinued model. V shape neck takes some getting used to, I don't hate it though. Based on the models you mentioned, I'd say check out the Dean select series or the Martucci sig.
This looks like a solid deal right here. BKPs and a comes with a case.
