alex s advice sought from 12 string players (23) RE: advice sought from 12 string players 29 Jan 14


I've used my Takamine 12 electro for 34 years for pro gigs and it's still going strong. Lovely low action (so you can do lots of consecutive nights with no trouble. I've had Elixir 10's on it for years (not the same set..) and find they are well worth the extra cost. I DON'T tune down - concert pitch is fine - still no neck problems after all this time - so it's easy to switch to another guitar eg a 6 string for solos etc. Spruce top and rosewood back/sides - great combination of woods which keeps the lows clearly audible and prevents too much jangly top end. Plugged in, it's a dream.
Try one.
