Merritt What is the best 12 string to buy? (23) RE: What is the best 12 string to buy? 08 Jun 17


Assuming you haven't already purchased your 12-sgtring...

+1 "..it all comes down to personal taste"

Been playing a new Taylor 150e at my local shop. $750 with a soft case. Dreadnaught, sapele back & sides, solid Sitka top, ebony fretboard, 1 7/8" at the nut, Taylor Exprssion System electronics.

I do a mix of percussive fingerpicking, some slide and strumming + vocals over that often plugging in for gigs; for my style and budget this is about as nice a guitar as I've found. Am on the fence about purchase; I have the $$ but have purchased 12-strings in the past, not played much, and wound up selling a few months later. I gotta commit. (Also, I think I'm reaching >my< (YMMV) natural limit on guitars and need think about what I get rid of.)
