Help me choose

I’m buying a guitar for my 11-year-old daughter. She has been playing a cheap small guitar (it is a Jackson) and has outgrown it.

Right now I am trying to choose between a Music Man Silhouette and a Kirk Hammett 602. The Music Man I am looking at has DiMarzio pickups instead of the stock ones.

My kids like to play metal. (My son has a Majesty. I’m not in a position to buy one that expensive right now.)

Which is the better choice?

The 602 is active, and neck through. But the Silhouette is much lighter and more versatile. Also, the Silo would be used, and the KH would be new.
