Re: 12 String Guitars
I own three. A Taylor jumbo, a Takamine and a Yamaha. I've been cycling through them as of late. Right now the Yamaha, which is a fourteen fret dreadnaught, is my 12 of choice, sitting on a stand right behind me. I've decided over the past few weeks that this is the one that's easiest to play and sounds the best. I'm a finger picker and this one is the easiest to pick.
George Grove's post on the Rob Reider thread got me thinking-how many of us here are 12 string aficionados? They don't seem to get the love right now that they have in decades past, but I suspect they'll come around again.
I got my first 12 when I was 12(ironic, eh?). I've never been without one since. I dig 'em! I know Rick likes 'em, too.
What say you?
