didnt say floyd rose man. I dont care whether it's got a decent floating trem on it, even if it's not a floating trem but it still has the locking nut (and so presumably fine tuners) I would block the trem, I just like the locking nut for the stability.

As for budget, Id be hoping to buy second hand no more than £200

Try these Godins:

http://godinguitars.com/godinfreewaysap.htm
http://godinguitars.com/godinprogressionusbp.htm
http://www.musiciansfriend.com/guitars/godin-velocity-electric-guitar

Of those, the Velocity is probably the shreddiest HSS, but it has been discontinued. That linked one is one of the few new ones out there; used ones can be found @$500.

The Fernandes Retrorocket Pro:
http://www.fernandesguitars.com/retrorocket/retrorocket-pro.html

It's HSS, comes with fairly hot pickups and a Sustainer, but only has 22 frets.

G&L:

Fret-King:
http://www.fret-king.com/gregg_wright.html

There are several Fret-King "Strat" models, but I thought the aesthetics of this one might really appeal to you; only 22 frets, though. It is also not HSS, but P90SS.

Malden has a couple of their prototypes for sale:

http://maldenguitars.com/MISC.htm

That Stiger is only HH, but it does have coil-taps.

Well in that case, search for a used Korean Ibanez.

edit: oh wait, you said a strat copy....
