Sounds like an electric 6-string with single-coil pickups.

Hope that narrows it down for you.

... with heavy chorus & reverb... the chorus almost only wet.

Also some echo (and/or maybe predelay on the reverb).

I strongly suspect it's this aspect the OP was most focused on. The Cocteaus weren't the first people to feature such sounds, but they pretty much built their own sound around it.

actually, the processing is the least part of my focus.

chorus, detune, compression, mod delay? sure... im looking at what the source could be...

6 string with single coil pickups? doubtful... definitely not a strat...

Single-coursed Mandola, with Piezo pickups.

Too snappy to be an oud....

Maybe scour this earlier thread on Robin Guthrie's sound : Cocteau Twins/Robin Guthrie guitar sound

The first suggested guitar I see was Jazzmaster, which fits, perhaps a Jaguar or Mustang also would fit that. Similar sounds to those found in lots of of the more grungey/surfy stuff.

Probably a humbucker-equipped Jazzmaster - as they obviously aren't single coil transducers.
