Just curious if the guitar has more of an LP tone than the cobra. I am NOT looking for opinions on it's looks. Just on the tone unplugged and plugged. Thanks
Thanks Thomas-I hope you're doing well too. I'm seriously considering the atom regardless of aesthetics. I'm just hoping other people who've played both could give me more feedback.Originally posted by Big Country
Your reply on that cobra post really got me thinking about it. If the cobra can't get the thick low mids and chunk of and LP maybe the Atom would. I'm impartial to the look of the guitar if it sounds right. I guess it's going to take some time for the guitar to make its way into heavy circulation.
Good to hear from you as always! Hope things are well in HI.
You should definitely ask to play it. Even if you aren't thinking about buying it you never know what might happen when your fingers touch the fretboard and strum it for the first time. You might fall in love. so that makes you a potential buyer. I'm going to try one out at Garret Parks in MD this week and there is about .05% that I buy it. (mostly cause if I'm going to get one it's gotta have a dark bluish or red top )Originally posted by Marty Horne
Express Music here in Seminole, Fl has an Atom in in Burnished Orange and I've been meaning to try it out. Sometimes I feel funny about asking if I'm not seriously thinking about buying it (I want another Cobra).
Sounds like you are describing a PRS Singlecut (except for the clarity).Originally posted by DaveK
The main difference I found was the Atom has less maple in the tone than a LP. It's very fat and darker than a LP,but it still has great defintion and clarity.It has plenty of balls and chunk,kinda thick and chewy,too.
