Overall Rating:
Cloud is best for beginning guitarists because she is so simplistic, and yet still has that great sound of an electric guitar. She's also perfect for rhythm guitarists, since it has a good rhythm in it and can hold great sounds without letting the noise get in the way.
Model Year: 2001
Price: $213.00 (new)
Where Obtained: local music store
Features:
A great guitar. Mine's all black with a dark maple neck. I don't know that much about guitars, but I'm learning. Since it's made by Gibson it was made in the U.S., or Korea or someplace like that. Their are only two nobs on the guitar, mine are see-through, and one stick to control treble and rhythm. I have a black leather strap around her, which fits in with her black body.
Playability:
I am a strumming kind of guy, and this guitar lets me strum no matter what. The way the strings are placed feel like their always below my fingers. The frets aren't too big, too small, but normal sized (even for beginers like me). The size of it isn't uncomfortable, and not huge either. With a strap, you could do almost any kind of trick with this guitar.
Sound Quality:
Cloud (name of the guitar)has a real rough sound when plugged into teh amp and played loud enough, and when I change the tune knob, the sound gets even heavier and darker. She sounds heavier than most hard rock bands these days. But she can also be soft, quiet, and peaceful. Since their is a treble and rhythm stick between the only two knobs on the guitar she could sound like a totally different guitar.
Durability:
The only real problem I have with Cloud is that the big E string sometimes rings against the metal frets on the neck. I tighten it harder, but yet it still does that. That's it. With a wireless cord I could jump around, perfect when your out doing gigs out there. Most of her parts are made out of metal, while others are wood. The only thing that really broke so far is her strings, in a month I had to get all of them replaced. I had a fight yesterday with my tuner, smashed that up as well....
