Hi all =)

I'm just wondering, are there guitars out there that are similar to a PRS, the SE 22 type. I've always wanted to eventually own one in the future but I currently live in London and the only PRS I've seen around here are mainly the high end ones(over a thousand pounds).

To narrow it down, I'll list what I'm looking for:-
-HH guitar, nice smooth tone
-22 frets ideally
-similar shape with good high fret access(the prs neck joins the body at the 21st fret)
-a trem bridge

Thanks!

They don't make the SE custom 22 anymore, but the SE CU24 is a nice guitar. You can get the Cu22, but you'll have to go used.

You can check www.andertons.com and guitarguitar both are located in the UK

I checked out Fame guitars and I must say they have to be rebranded (like their amps are) or custom made by PRS, they look so similar, No wait, EXACTLY like PRS. Hell, the Fame category even shows one PRS, Tremonti 10 model, for some reason. *edit* Apparently they are not. Fame guitars are made in Poland where PRS guitars are not AFAIK.


Usually I dont take some music store inhouse brands too seriously but this one has all kinds of guitars priced from low midrange to other side of 1000€. Interesting.

Not complaining about not enough guitars, just not the specific one I'm looking for at affordable price. I've yet to see a PRS 22 under 900/1000. While I'm not completely opposed to 24, I just prefer the 22 better

Well you have not been looking that hard or your looking at the PRS CE22 which is more expensive and a USA made PRS while the SE is MIK

The differences between a 24 and a 22 fret is the neck pickup position.

Carvin does ship to the UK, but I hear that the import costs, etc. basically nullify much of the bang for the buck Carvin usually means.

those fames look interesting, but I haven't tried them. musicstore isn't my favourite online shop, let's leave it at that

if you're wiling to go used, pre-~2000 patrick eggles are pretty nice. not clones but in the same vein and really nice guitars (pickups are mediocre on some models, but other than that).

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.
