Christmas is on its way and my birthday is in 3 weeks time.

Im going to Music Live next weekend with a wad of cash to fund both.

Im looking for a new guitar, a set neck Les paul shape would be nice (Not epi) and the Tokai Love Rocks look pretty sweet..

I'll have around £200-250.

Suggestions for alternatives?

I play rock, metal, blues etc

And id like it to be able to handle Zakk Wylde stuff

Cheers

^ not for £250 in the UK...

If you can get up to around £300, a washburn x50 pro, or if you can find one, wi65 pro, might be a good idea. Yamaha aes 620 is probably also worth a look.

MIJ tokais are very nice- the korean/chinese ones, which you'd be looking at at your price, are alright, but not as nice as the MIJ ones.

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.

When I went to Denmark Street a couple of days ago there were a lot of nice range of Tokai guitars in the shops there. I'm pretty sure there were some decent ones for that kinda price.

If you can get to London, I recommend it dude. It's an easy to find street too, just off of Oxford Street and approaching Soho. You could probably get some of the guitars a lot cheaper on the internet, but that place is great for trying stuff out.

Ive been to london 2 years running for family holidays and been to Denmark Street both times :P Each time spent my holiday money on a pile of crap that has been sold very shortly after :/

Im using a J&D brothers LP copy atm, had it 5 years and looking for an upgrade

^ agreed, denmark street is a great place to try, but not to buy.

duncan custom custom in the bridge, and a '59 in the neck. pretty sweet for a £300 guitar. the yamaha has a bridge JB... not just as nice, IMO, but again definitely a bonus for a sub-£300 guitar.

yeah, the washburns have that voc to get single-coily tones. The x50 has a push-pull switch, which IMO is better, as that means you still retain your tone knob. Of course, if you never use your tone knob anyway, it doesn't matter.
