81 Cole Clark

At Cole Clark Guitars, we've applied a new understanding to an age old art. Like you, we appreciate the sound and feel of a great steel string guitar, one that reflects and projects the emotion you put into your music.

Great guitars require great tone woods, and we select our timbers with care. Even our most basic model acoustic is made from all solid timbers. Our patented manufacturing method applies the finest of control to each instrument we make, so that every instrument can be loud and lively and subtle and soft.

Play one at your local dealer. Whack it! Caress it! You'll find that it responds in kind to your touch. String response and articulation are excellent. You can option your guitar with our new pickup system. We believe this to be the best pickup yet offered. Big claim? Listen to it, then tell us what you think.

I admit I fell in love with the look of the Bunya pine and Blackwood (trees I can see outside my window) even before my fingers picked the strings. Used to play a Fender and an Ovation but for beautiful tone and a heavenly sound when plugged in you can't beat a Cole Clark guitar. Yes I am proud that the best guitars are made here in Australia (Matons are awesome too)

Own three, culprit 1 and 111 Duncan pups standard, plus a Guardian, quality woods and components, well made aussie guitars, more bang for my buck compared to my American made telecaster.

The best I've ever played A++

I was bought this guitar by my father, it is a nice shape and sound, but, I am not sure about the make, has anyone heard of it before or knows anything about it, thanks

Have been using them for quite a few years, and I have to say they are good value for money, reliable and good customer service if needed.

Bought my first bass a lindo, Fine make, great sound. Love the enameled birds down the neck.

85 Stratocaster

This isn't a brand, it's a guitar made by Fender

This is Fender.

Great tone great price. It has potential and with just a few tweaks it can be a great guitar. I have one and I live it.

What the hell is this? this is a guitar made by Fender who would ever think this is its own brand?

86 Jixing Guitars

I love jixing guitars most

Super starter guitars..

87 Fletcher Guitars

Fletcher Guitars is one of the most professional acoustic guitar brands.

The Indonesian-produced Fletcher guitar is as good as New York.

Fletcher guitars are so underrated. I have one and it produces a brilliant sound and has a mahogany finish. I bought it last year and it produces a better sound than it did before.

Better than my 214ce. - Tigomusic

90 Framus

Amazing guitars, I found them better than Gibson.. Probably one of the most underrated guitars of the last ten years

I own a Framus Tennessee the best, mellow or hard its up to you. Quality! Quality! Beautiful fast neck, superb hollow body, great humbuckers and tremm bar. Very good value for money.

It's like an old Mercedes Benz... Excellent built, solid, nice sound, finest materials, expensive... Was the perfect gift for myself... You will have to try one to understand what I'm saying...

German made.Impeccable quality

91 Freedom

Freedom is one awesome guitar, how do I prove that? Well a good guitar has high frets, comfortable neck, thick and hard body, and awesome strings. Freedom also rocks when it comes to designs, so this is something I recommend for all kinds of guitarists.

I think freedom guitars have a great sound and its got a comfortable action. I would recommend it for any guitarists

Feels good and sounds great. I have many guitars and this is probably one of the best. Freedom guitars are also excellent with their stunning looks

Better than Gibson and fender combined

94 Zachary Guitars

Quality and underrated. Should be tried!

95 Caparison

In mostly all other companies you pay closely 5000 - 8000 $ for a guitar like this. You can compare them with the best guitars out there and they maybe even still are in front. A quote from Wikipedia: "They are generally considered to be one of the highest quality instruments on the market. " And they are still cheap, for the quality they deliver.

Come on. Seriously they are the nicest playing and sounding electrics made. Ashamed something of this superior quality is this far down

Absolutely agree with You.
Under rated, and not so famous, but they sure kick the ass of other higher brand in this chart.
Get one. I have my Horus for about 4 years, and even if I play other instruments sometimes, I still keep comin back to her, and enjoy playing it.

Unbelievably wonderful instruments both in design and playability.

97 Saint Guitar Company

Saint Guitar Company, is a custom guitar manufacturer in central california. Saint Guitar Company makes some of the best guitars ever!
Just check one out and play it... You're going to have a very hard time finding a better guitar.

- alexei

I played this past 2years and seriously its tone is good.

I am proud of my fletcher guitar.

98 Steinberger

Steinberger guitars are the most innovative instruments I've every played. no head stock, a transposing tremolo and a graphite neck for lots of SUSTAAIN! - nausea_87

Kept the 66 strat and grestch 6120 but...
Rediscovered the early steinberger GM (headless neck, strat style body) and now have three. these are what I play now for many reasons. Not hung up on the guitar must have a headstock mentality, obvious they don't - and they are great instruments. Really wish they would reissue to early design specification... Might get a few more. Think I am the only one seen with steinberger guitars in my entire state and certainly adds to the uniqueness a guitarist should strive for.

Excellence with tuning stability. Really like my Early GM body (strat style) guitars. Balance is outstanding,
Put on a Les Paul then one of these... You tell us what's up.
Materials are top quality. Original and intelligent in design. Although wooden guitars have served other instruments well for decades the graphite neck material is an evolution that really makes sense. "Wood Tone"... Whatever they sound like a Steinberger and I like it.

99 Crafter

Crafter guitars are so underrated. I have one and it produces a brilliant sound and has a mahogany finish. I bought it last year and it produces a better sound than it did before.

I have a 12string with crafter electronics and it is amazing I wouldn't trade it for any other

Purchased one this year great sound plays great got fender but seam to pick this up much more love it

Crafter is underrated but it produces one of the best sounds. The craftmanship, quality is just amazing

100 Godin

I own a Godin Session electric guitar.I love it the quality is very high I am happy I purchased this guitar over the made in America Fender Strat. And paid less money for same quality. Musicians need to take a look before they purchase Fender,Gibson. Godin has more hand crafting in their workmanship, than many custom shops.
