If you want to have a lot of change from £800 and a decent guitar, then the Fender Highway One Strat is a good option. If you want a bit of back pocket shrapnel then get an American Standard Strat. Don't let people tell you that Strats aren't good for metal because 'Fast' Eddie Clarke uses a strat and Kirk Hammet used to llay one as well.

+1 to MIA strat.

A HSS strat might be more useful then a SSS one, but it's preference.

For metal, I'd guess at you wanting a locking trem, though.
Ibanez. Pretty much anything from the S Series. Or RG, if you'd rather. Approaching your price range, they're all pretty good.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

explorer or mia strat (hss)

edit: what amp because if you're using an mg or spider then forget about a £800 guitar and guitar a decent amp (i know i've got a spider but i'm poor and saving up for a new amp)

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Ibanez S series is pretty awesome. The ZR trem is IMHO the best locking trem unit out there. Pups can be changed out for something better (but I usually change pickups anyways)

Psh, S series? Get outta here. A nice Ibanez RG would suit you very well, methinks. Like a 550, 570, 770 something in that range, probably an older one with a nice maple neck. all have original edge tremolos(Ibanez's good licensed Floyd Roses) and pickups that will handle almost anything. If you have a high gain amp (I'm not familiar with ENGLs but I think their high gain?) then your set.
