Does anyone know of any good PRS copies? obviously there's the SE range but I don't like on Custom 24 how the body isn't arched. I looked at Tokai PRS copies but I the the measurements of the body is a bit off. The closest looking one I've seen is the Vintage copy but I dunno how it sounds.

Carvin CT series isn't exactly a 'copy', but it's pretty darn close. It'll cost you anywhere from $1100-$1800 (depending on model and options) but that gets you soo close to real PRS quality.

The vintage i had didnt sound that great and unsurprisingly felt very very cheap.

indie guitars do a half decent look alike though?

I've played a few Hamer PRS style guitars before. They were pretty good sounding, but felt cheaply made.

The Vintage models are technically the closest if you want to get into specific dimensions and such. Of course, being standard made-in-Asia copy guitars they are of absolute average quality and they'll need a little work if you want to get the best out of them; even then, of course they can't compete with the real PRS guitars, but that's why the Vintage costs £300 and the PRS costs £3000. Personally I find the Vintages to be a betetr choice than the SEs as they have the arched top, the rest of the guitar is the same quality and they cost less. Just don't fool yourself into thinking you're getting professional quality at a tenth of the price because obviously you're not.

The Tokai copies are a little better quality and the differences in the body shape are too small to really notice. Most people couldn't tell the difference until you actually got your measuring tape out. However, they're still not quite up to full PRS quality.

The Carvins seem to be almost on-par with a full PRS, at least going by the one I've tried. Of course, that one could have been a fluke, maybe it was a little worse and most are as good as PRS, maybe it was a little better than average and most Carvins are inferior. I wouldn't like to say based just on one guitar. But for what it's worth, the one I tried was good, everyone else loves 'em and although they cost quite a lot, they're still cheaper than a PRS would be.


EDIT: just saw you're in the UK. Forget Carvin then. Carvin recently tripled their prices for the UK (not including import duties). Why? Literally just because they can.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

Are the Agiles PRS copies or copies of ESP/Schecter models that look like PRS designs?

I have one of these from 2007. I'll tell you right now that if the contrast between my guitar teacher's old tele from them and my 2009 tele from them is anything to go by, you'll be more than satisfied with this thing.

You should go with an original PRS and not a copy. But thats up to you and your bank account.

Yeah, what I was thinking with the vintage is if I just got new pickups for it, possible PRS ones.

Well, I can't find the exact model anymore.

They make lots of Rickenbacker copies, that kind of look like some PRS guitars. Other than that, this is the only model I can find that resembles a PRS...
