I purchased this at Guitar Center (they gave me a great trade in on some old 'beater' guitars I had lying around) Paid $689 w/ case after trade. I have always wanted another 12 string (my brother got my original 12 stomped on 25 years ago -- I've finally forgiven him). Tried this at the store and knew that I was going to get it.
The construction and appearance is fantastic! The glossy black finish really looks good. As far as playing, this guitar is a dream. The action is fantastic! Acoustically this guitar sounds great! Plugged in is when it really shines. The Takaminie Electronics really add to the sound.
Haven't found anythin yet!
As I said above this is a very well constructed guitar. The finish is fantastic,
I wondered why I waited so long to get another 12 string -- This one made it worth the wait!
