    Default Vorson / Clearwater Les Paul Electric Tenor - REVIEW

    Depending on whether you are UK or USA, these are either Clearwater or Vorson, but otherwise are identical.

    Been looking forward to featuring one for a while

    I picked up a Clearwater, (red with white pick guard), second hand, & it's been fun to have around, I use a Micro Cube amp, which gives me some nice effects.

    Fun instrument, at a reasonable price.

    Edit: I bought an Ashton gig bag for mine, fits it nicely.

    Take a look at the Risa LP.

    You will that it is much better made, has better quality components, is finished better when compared to the Vorson.

    Yes it costs more, but I can say with all certainly a Risa is the one to buy

    Yes, I have done. I reviewed it and mention that in the reivew of the Vorson - https://www.gotaukulele.com/2019/03/...le-review.html

    But I don't think it is as clear cut as that for everyone. Yes, the Risa is the better instrument in most departments. It's also 4 times the price. I'd still take the Risa myself, but not everyone can reach that sort of budget. So that makes this an attractive cheaper alternative.

    Saying that it is the only better option assumes people have limitless budgets. A bit like saying that the Ohana SK25 has no place being sold because people should just buy a Kamaka.

    Horses for courses.
