I have been playing for 3 years and have been playing non stop so decided to buy a high-end guitar. I had my mind set on a Ibanez electric until I played the Cole Clark FL1.
I got the Cole Clark FL1 at the local store in my town for pretty much 1000$, At first i had my mind set on an electric but as soon as I played the Cole Clark FL1 it just blew my mind. The sound on it is just INCREDIBLE!! Especially for the price, i played my guitar teachers 2800$ Hohner and much preferred the Cole Clark. It also works for many types of music, blues , classical, pretty much everything you can think of.
The action is perfect, the sound is perfect, the neck is perfect, the body is perfect (indian rosewood), the whole thing is just great, please just try one and you'll want to buy it the next day. In fact I went into the store to order my Ibanez and just decided to play it and then i bought it about 2 hours later and never regret it!
Since the wood is Indian Rosewood, it makes it sound much better but loweres the durability, so it straches easily. But they offer a 5 year parts and labour warranty so it should be all good. They are also very good (the company that is) because they usually send you a completety new guitar if something happened to it.
VERY GOOD explained above abit. Very high quality. You cannot imagine the sound!!!
You cannot live until you try one, please try one and you will not regret it.
Made in Australia is between the range of from Cole Clark, but it is at an appointment. Anyway, on mine.
It yadbat electro acoustic version (FL1-A) I have not tried: see review above, it parat very flat sound, and excellent when it is plugged.
Mine as purely acoustic, I chose it for her. And frankly, I just want rtable the reputation of this guitar, which suffers from the polemical FL1 A.
It is a dreadnough, very simple and unadorned, the table is bunya (Australian pine), the bottom and are fishplates Saddle solid and the neck - Grover: Mechanical, and Elixir strings a roll.
very pleasant (and believe me, I have small hands and big fingers ...)
The agreement moves very little, it is fairly easy rhythmic mastery by picking I'm too bad for me to realize, solo is very pleasant all over the neck.
It is trslgre, in fact, it is especially the case which is lgre, so that the balance surprised at beginners, we feel it looks ct of the handle, but we made it fast. The sound is very
is also balanced to some I have taken: no oversized bass, no treble so-called crystalline brief no fluff.
I play mostly in agreement on songs, it suits me parfaitmeent.
I use it for 6 months, always with pleasure. In the price range (between 850 and 1100 euros) I tried the Seagull, a Takamine, a Taylor and a Martin D15 same (the mahogany). Martin the silent very pleasant, but seemed less versatile.
The Cole Clark has two versions for the body: Maple or Blackwood. I have long hesitating but I ended up taking the saddle, a bit clearer.
I am much paper I made two test sessions: for now nothing makes me regret that choice. Nothing
