Ok, so I decided to do a little A/B test.
Guitars:

1st clip: PRS Custom 22
2nd clip: Tokai LS-92

AMP: Same settings for both (in the interest of trying to maintain scientific validity  Tongue )
Fractal Audio Axe Fx Standard
Marshall JCM800 Model
Mid boost pedal in front
Some reverb, delay and a peaking filter at about 900Hz to bring the whole thing "forward" a little bit

Listen to the PRS clip first so you can appreciate the difference.

Backing track used:
Sweet Child O' Mine Backing Track (Eb Tuned) with Vocals!!!
(converted to mp3 and reduced volume to try and get rid of clipping)

Recorded in Audacity in about an hour (so please don't shoot me about mistakes/volume differences - I tried to mix it all down to decent levels but was limited because of the backing track)

Thoughts/opinions?

The PRS has always sounded great to me, and clean or with a modern high gain setting it still kills - squeals easily, plays like butter.
But this A/B really gave me a bit of a shock  Huh?

Bridge for the leads

Well, thats quite interesting. Seems to me I'll have to get a Tokai then. Really, in my opinion, in that song in just sounded better
