I've owned both and would go with the SLO if I was ever to purchase either one again. In the end the SLO would be the Beast Master General Both are built like brick **** houses though - the Cornford was very impressive
The Cornford Hellcat though is one I want to investigate. The Guthrie Govan clips are pretty killer with it:
Id have to agree with steve here....I just bought an SLO after (stupidly) selling mine on ebay. I played the mk II at MAE in Fort Lauderdale FL and thought it sounded good but not better than the SLO for the money and versatility.
