    Thanks all.

    Have been into the shop in Guildford a couple of times and it's always been rammed so haven't had much chance to monopolise a member of staff's time and try lots of different instruments. Doesn't help that the current budget is a bit low (200 max). Also they seem to only have 1 (poss 2) of each model in stock.

    Will keep looking, ta!

    (how long does it take for the buzzing/numbness in your finger tips to fade??)

    Just in case anyone is interested...

    I've gone and bought myself a Crafter FX550EQ:


    Picked it up yesterday after finding it on Gumtree. It's about 10 years old, not used much, very little evidence of prior use!
    I changed the strings to some Martin extra lights that I happened to have (they may be a little too light tbh), and although I've only had it 1 day I am very much enjoying it.
    (still can't play much though!)

    I started guitar class but gave up half way. My fingers were too numb to switch the keys. I think the thing is not at all for me. Maybe I should just work on developing gross motor skills

    Guitars with keys are the best.

    I quite liked the sore finger feeling.
