I like mine. It's not as easy to pluck as a 6-stringer. Not that I care, I just play my banjo now. Which has a convenient 5 strings.

12-strings are awesome. My Dad used to have an Ovation Glen Cambell Special Edition 12-String, and it was fantastic. I think I cried the day he sold it.

i love em. that's on my list of guitars to get. once i get my new electric, then it's going to be a 12 string martin, then maybe a concerto or grand concerto taylor or soemthing like that. give myself some tonal diversity to work from.

You kinda remind me of an guitar lovers add in a magizine. Its got a room with 6 guitars and an amp, and each guitar has a oneliner telling how it was bought.

Traded '88 Corolla for it
Another Student Loan
Lived off ramen noodles
hocked brothers computer
gave 253 pints of plasma
found in grandma's attic, how cool is that.

Then at the very bottom of the add it says in big bold print, 'WE UNDERSTAND'

My main guitar is a Guild 12-string (can't remember the model #) with mahogany sides and back and bookmatched spruce top that I bought used. It's very sweet, great tonal balance. I must say that the $25 I invested in Elixir polyweb strings was worth it, they have a great sound.

I played an Alvarez with maple back and sides a couple of weeks ago that sounded great, too.

I love the 12 string sound, but I'm not sure I'd buy one unless I was in posession of some expendable cash. It's not on the top of my guitar "needs", I suppose. I need electronics for my acoustic, then I want a nice digital multitrack recorder and Cakewalk or something, then I want a Parker Fly Deluxe

Yeah, I'm in the same boat as Shred. I'd love to have one, but I don't have the money for one. There's so much I'd like to get and a 12 is not really at the top of my list, but it's close.
