So yeah i'm going to get a guitar for my birthday for around £400 for playing Garage/Alternative/Indie such as Dirty Pretty Things, The White Stripes, The Wombats etc.

At the moment I have a harley benton ES-335 copy and a cheap £80 Epiphone les paul junior.

So if you could suggest a guitar for me that'd be great. Thanks.

Not much for 400 quid around nowadays in the Fender/Gibson area so your best bet is probably a Washburn.

For that much you could go with one of the guitars in the Fender Classic Player's line they have going (Jazzmaster, Jaguar, HH Jaguar). They run for about $800 but then again shipping could bring it too much over the top (or local distributors across over there might want to overcharge you). Though theres also the '65 Mustang Reissue, that might be within your budget.

i'd say a Jazzmaster, Jaguar or a mustang. they're not as mainstream as strats an teles, but they are just as kickass.

Can you get Mustangs, Jaguars or Jazzmasters for £400?

they are a little bit over but will give you the sound you want
they are around 480-500 if your willing to go used 400 shouldnt be too hard to find

andertons music store are doing a mim strat for £269 get one of those or even better they have a telecaster for the same price.

I would recomend the telecaster to you for sure, and for £400 you can get the baja telecaster and thats a beauty.

£400 USED will get you a great buy on ebay, check tokai love rocks, you can get a hand made japanse guitar to rival the usa gibsons for £400.
I bought a 1963 melody maker for £370 this year on ebay, all original except from a refinish.
so bargains can be had.
