Does anyone have any recommendations for what the best '335' type guitars are that are around £200-£300 second hand?

Thanks

You might get a Tokai for that price.

I highly recommend them.

I really want that AS80 and jamison knows what he is talking about. He is quite knowledgeable in terms of gear. Damn how I wish I wasn't broke...

I can't remember the specific model names - but if you can get a Japanese model for that price your laughing.

It's not second hand and its 'not Japanese, but its still a good guitar, I have this exact model and I love it to bits.

The Epi Dot's a fine guitar, put in some Gibby pups and it'll scream!

The Epi Dot and the ES60 are very very similar.

I just preferd the Tokai and I got a free hard case with it ;)

Schecter Corsair.

But if you think that any of them are as good as a real 335, you're dreaming.
