Thanks guys .. I'm so tempted by that platinum SE at Andertons - I love that colour, reminds me of the old Clapton signature strat (in 'Pewter').

My primary guitar is a PRS SE Custom 24. It's a very close call between that and my Epiphone Les Paul Plustop Pro Fx as to which is the best guitar I've ever owned! I think the PRS beats it as I haven't had to customise any of it.
Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind. Withering my intuition, missing opportunities and I must feed my will to feel my moment drawing way outside the lines.

Quite tempted to invest in one of these

A bit like the PRS EG of old (as featured in the RTB video). No fancy finish or figured wood, scratchplate-mounted electrics. Would be nice to have a US-made PRS again. I will say that the looks don't really appeal, though.

In the end I bought a Tokai 'Love Rock'.

A touch less than £350, and without a doubt a nicer guitar than my last Gibson Les Paul.

Nice one, those Tokais are excellent. Did you buy it new James, where from?

Yep it's a new one, from an online retailer. I have the receipt lying around somewhere, will update the thread when I find it.

I also did a rubbish YouTube video to compare the humbuckers and general tone with my Tom Holmes-equipped Sid Poole.

I will redo this at some point, you can barely hear what I'm saying.

The PRS SE Angelus Alex Lifeson semi-acoustic has just been reduced in price by about £300 to £499.

Er...so I've just ordered one (hardcase included).  ::)

I now have three PRSes, an SE SC245, an S2 Standard 22 and a CE24.

Although the CE24 is a bit fancier with a figured maple top and costs substantially more, the S2 is my favourite. Absolutely brilliant guitar - beautfully precise, beautifully made, rings very sweetly and has a rather nice refined character.
