The LTD 50s series are quite good. I own a M50 and it never disappointed me so far. It's 200€ new, so I guess it's about 150 pounds or so?

More like £199.99?

In UK you could do worse than a Vintage V100 Les Paul (from about £220) or V6S SG type (around £140) or a Cort X2 (£200)
The V100 would be best at the blues end, the SG a nice all-rounder and the X2 more towards the heavies. The only problem with Vintage is that they sometimes come poorly set up.
Would be worth telling us what your prime guitar is and what gear you play through ('cos we're nosey)

i have an epiphone les paul custom with seymour duncan sh4jb and bigsby
good quality cheap reliable well rounded set up
i run it through a boss me 70 to a small amp that i mic up or run it straight into a pa depends if im feeling lazy

its very digital lets put it that way but it sounds good if you set it up properly.

yeah i dont mind if the guitar has a crappy stock set up i will change that my self and put better PUPS in it
OH and ide rather prefer hard tails cheers

Well you need to spend a bit more, and on an Agile.

The Vintage will knock spots off your Epi, even with the stock pups, but a pair of Hot Slags is even better.
Sorry Bandana but £150 shipping for an Agile is pointless as Vintage are better anyway.

You expect to be able to spend 220 pounds, and get a guitar that can do the amazing variety of mellow cleans to BRUTALLZZZLASLAKJDHN and then hot blues at the same time?

mate, either your incredibly cheap or just uninformed.
