Overall Rating:
Wasn't even in the market for a 12 string when I accidentally picked this one up. I couldn't put it down. I bought it the same day. It was one of those moments in life when a guitar speaks to you and says, "Buy me. I was made for you."
Model Year: 2000
Price: $2400.00 (new)
Where Obtained: Sam Ash, Manhattan
Features:
12 String Acoustic/Electric cutaway. Maple back and sides, Sitka spruce top, Ebony fretboard, Natural gloss finish. It has state of the art Fishman electronics, with it's own volume and tone controls, and a phase switch. The guitar is, from a purely aesthetic point of view, a true work of art. The finished maple grain that makes up the back of the guitar is striking.
Playability:
This guitar is easily the most beautiful 12 string guitar I've ever had the pleasure of playing. When I first picked up this guitar, the first thing I noticed was the most incredible sound I've ever heard come out of a twelve string. The second thing I noted is that I've played 6 strings that were more difficult to play. It played like a dream. Plugging it in, I found the sound was lush, full, exquisite. (was going through a Fender Acoustasonic Jr.)
Sound Quality:
See above.
Durability:
Like other hardwood guitars, this one needs to be humidified in dry climates and during dry winter months. But comes in a heavy duty hardshell case. Very well protected.
