Yes.

Any Vintage guitar will be decent, Ibanez GRG170DX, Ibanez GRGR321MH, you can get decent LTDs and Jacksons for about £150, Squier Affinity guitars are good.

you can get a solid guitar for £200 (solid as in dependable but not dazzling) for something flexible look into yamaha pacifica 112's (preferably the old j-type as opposed to the newer v type) or a squier standard strat (these'll be on walls at about 220-230 but can easily be bargained down). i would avoid the affinity strats though as the wood in them is significantly less good quality.

Do you have stocks in this brand ?

Vintage V100's are generally better than Epiphone and Squier, though that is a very different axe. The Vintage SG's are not bad either. In Super Strat types the Cort X2 takes a lot of beating and in fat Strats there's the Cort G series or Yamaha Pacifica. Both well made but the Cort edges it on the pickups. The oddity is the Cort Z42 which is like a Les Paul after weight training. Or a les paul with body shaping curves. Stick with the mentioned brands and keep away from Encore, Stagg, Shine and most of the weirdo brands you see in starter packs and you'll be alright.
If you are in the Midlands, Richard's Guitars in Leamington Spa will look after you for Cort and Vintage.

one of my Jacksons is a lowest-of-the-range Kellys, which i got for £199.
i'd say it's pretty decent. it's definately giggable, and the pickups are usable.
not a bad guitar at all, and with a few mods done to it it can become a great guitar.

You can get a decent guitar for £200 if you're willing to go second hand. Really decent 1980s Ibanezes (aff whats the plural of Ibanez?!) go for about £100 on ebay. You should be able to pick up a MIK Tokai or if you're lucky you might find a washburn X50pro or an MIM fender for around £200 second hand.

If I was you I'd go and try out a bunch of guitars that retail up to £400, then when you know what you want start looking for one second hand within your budget.

Cort G Series.

depends on your definition of good, but you should certainly be able to get something decent. yamaha pacifica 112v is the obvious choice (should even be a bit less than £200), sometimes you can get good deals online on lag 200 series models, which i'd say probably does qualify as a good guitar, especially under £200.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Its just my bday soon and that the limit. I play mainly metal and rock. ive had the stagg for like 3 years and fancied something new maybe stick some heavy string on so i can play some heavier music.

the lag (jet 200 or roxanne, most likely) would be good for that if you're willing to take a chance and buy online. i'm not sure how the QC is, though, I've only tried a few.

are you near any decent guitar shops? the easiest way to see what you like and what the differences are in guitars is just to try a bunch head to head.
