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.

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.
You've got your whole life to lead.

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.
