Hi everyone, thought I'd share threads and pics of my Brisbane Australia Guitar Show outing with you, had a nice time. Because of limited download with pics in each thread on the forum, I will instead post a few threads with pics of various brand of guitars. This thread, I am posting pics of 'Cole Clark' guitars, made in Australia. Hope you like it
cheers

How about a review of the tone on these Cole Clarks.  I know everyone raves about the plugged in tone as 2nd to none with their pickup system, but what do these guitars sound like unplugged?

Sorry Bluesman, I did play the Cole Clark but didn't quite get to hear much. There was so much commotion from amps and other electric instruments, it was to hard to get the real sound and feel. The guitars were made of all Australian wood, 'Blackwood' etc, etc.

I was curious because there are dealers here in the US that sell these guitars.

I'm not very familiar with these guitars, to me they are very much like another Aussie guitar, 'Maton'. The style and wood are very similar, and thats probably because Cole Clark was a ex Maton luthier. Don't get me wrong, It is definately a beautiful guitar. And has a nicely balance feel when I held it, very solid, but as for the tone I can't help you there.

Hey check out this you tube video of this guy with a cole clark and stomp box.  Pretty cool.  It's not an unplugged song, but I think it still shows off the cole clark well.

Cole Clark is definitely a pioneer in making a full line of guitars with alternative woods that sound wonderful.  Yes other guitar makers have branched out and made a few guitars here and there with other tone woods, but Cole Clark is one of the first to truely use other woods with the focus of conservation in my opinion.  I do agree though that other guitar makers that use conventional tone woods are trying hard to be eco friendly in their selections.
I believe in the next 10-15 years we may see the guitar market swing around and possibly use new tone woods exclusively.  We'll see anyway.  Cheers!
