Just found a neat little way to recover the phone from the same situation:
-Phone won't boot past sony logo (mistake with CWM)
-Can't get as far as recovery screen
-Phone not recognised when connected, in regular, fastboot or flash mode
-Bootloader is locked
-Can put phone in fastboot but still not recognised (devmgmt.msc doesn't show anything)
-Install the right drivers for your board, plus fastboot and flashmode.
-Extract the kernel.sin from your working stock .ftf, put it somewhere I guess.
-Remove battery, give phone some breathing space. Tell it everything will be alright.
-Insert USB while holding vol up *and* holding camera button right down
-Phone will be detected
-Hit the lighting button in flash tool and choose fastboot
-"Select kernel to HotBoot" and locate the kernel.sin from your stock rom.
-Flashing this has the side effect of knocking the phone into *flash* mode.
-Don't unplug, not go flash your stock .ftf, and grin menacingly.
