I'm buying a new guitar. It will largely be a backup for my Strat.

I'm working on a limited budget of around £250 ( ) so will be looking closely in the second hand market but also wondered if anyone had any suggestions for cheaper new guitars that are still pretty awesome for the price.

I'm a rhythm player mostly, and will need it for playing music that sounds something like Radiohead, Oceansize, Swans, Neurosis and Glassjaw in a barfight brawl.

Any advice appreciated.
