Sound, looks and playability are excellent. My Taylor's and Martin's welcome the "new kid on the block" !
Happy with the Cleo live however, as I own an Echo live at half the price, I expected the Cleo to be a noticeable upgrade but I find the difference minimal. I have a Larrivee in the same price range so I was hoping that the Cleo might rival that but the Larrivee sounds/plays better. I did notice that the LR Baggs is a better pick up than the Echo. I do love the guitar however, looks amazing, but I will be changing the strings today. Performing tomorrow and am looking forward to playing it live :)
I’ve had them all. Just sold a Collins to a good friend. The Cleo is right up there with the best. Nice action. And I love the shape.
I got mine a week ago. I love the look and the trimmings. A real beauty. But the sound is definitely muted relative to other mid range guitars, particularly the higher end, while the low end is good. It sounds good but quiet. My $400 Eastman dreadnought is more resonant. Actually so is my Baby Taylor which is parlor size and was $450. When I play on my deck I have a little trouble hearing myself. It's still a very fine guitar though.
