    WOW!, there's literally hundreds you could chose from..

    Search eBay for stuff like:

    Encore
    Hondo
    Westwood
    or just search "electric guitar" and set your price parameters low.
    Personally, if I were buying a guitar that I was going to play but wanted to keep the price down, then I would look for something like a Yamaha Pacifica 112v. They're actually pretty good guitars and are very cheap considering the quality. Danelectro's are also pretty dirt cheap too and we all know Jimmy Page can't be wrong.

    Ive actually been scouring ebay but not finding much (outside of things like first acts) that's under 150 or so. Its interesting to see how high people are pricing some very questionable guitars

    I've always had good luck in sourcing parts for very little money. A while ago I picked up a genuine Fender Strat body for £8 and a Kramer 'beak' neck for £15, so you could always try to build your own 'parts' guitar. It's a great learning process and very rewarding too.

    Craigslist.

    You'll be surprised what you can find. I bought a Beretta and sold it for much more then I paid on Ebay.

    Mexican strats that people bought and gave up go for pretty cheap on there....

    I recently bought a Peavey Predator for $169 and it sounds and plays fantastic. I'm sure it's just luck of the draw. But it is an outstanding guitar for the price. Plays like a $600 guitar.

    Not sure if you can get it over there (I assume you can) but Cort is a good company.

    I've owned four Corts in my time, and all of them have treated me well. Solid guitars, IMO.
