Well the title is pretty self explanitory, I'm in the market for a new guitar, having a custom just isn't doin' it for me....... and I'd like to hear what you guys have to say about a new guitar for me.

Amp: Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier

Bands: Lamb of God, The Devil Wears Prada, Avenged Sevenfold, All That Remains, As I Lay Dying, Bring Me The Horizon, Bullet For My Valentine, A Day To Remember, but I would also like it to be able to get realllly good cleans.

Pickups: I don't care between active and passive, it has to have a coil tap knob. Preferably I'd like to not have to replace the pickups.

Body/Wood Preferences: I really like the Superstrat shape, Ebony fretboard, Set-Neck Construction

Budget: Probably about $800, possibly willing to go used

Bridge: Either Floyd Rose or Set Bridge, Possibly String Thru

Tunings: Drop C# to Drop C

I know it's very specific, have fun

this is absolutely, 100% correct.
For example, Dave Mustaine has a signature coffee mix.

Good Morning, Black Coffee?

This guitar should fits your needs perfectly, on the downside, Michael Kelly's are hard to find. You can buy one new on eBay for $650.
Wave goodbye to the past.

I'd tell you to look for an Ibanez 550 used or go for an ltd.

I can't find a Ebony fingerboard in that price range. The LTD M-401/LTD M-1000NT (if you go online on musiciansfriend for the sale, otherwise it's out of your price range) has everything you want except for the Ebony fingerboard.
