Rickenbacker fireglo (red gradient), manufactured in the States (like all the brand Rickenbacker). THE guitar!
Superb finish, we will say enough good, you feel immediately that it was a great hands. I played before (and always) on a Fender Tele, but here the difference is clear. Channel 24 fret (two octaves, it does), 12-string for a wealth of incredible, it's revisit what we play for when to use the scraper, because the disont outright, this type of sound will be not at all the pieces.
2 humbuckers, 2 tone knobs for each plus a fifth which is the balance between the two microphones. The characteristics are the same as version 6 strings anyway.

UTILIZATION

Only problems: the handle, very end. Request an adjustment period, for the fingers are welcome. But otherwise the game on 12-string is not a problem in itself, access to the boxes is more acute aisémment.
Another good point: a super light weight, when you consider the microphones, with 12 keys, it's pretty impressive. A lightweight concrete for sound.

SOUNDS

12 strings: absolumment superb. As mentioned above, it is not used for all the songs (from my point of view), but the sound is a precision and richness to fall backwards. I use a Fender Blues Deluxe amp (40 watts), we get very fast, powerful sound, accurate, great. In seeking longer, the sound is fantastic. I play with the medium, not too sharp or too fat, I usually put the selector in the middle to péchus sounds, and above are more suitable for the rides, play calmer.
In any case, in its wide range of perspectives.

OVERALL OPINION

I for one month, it took me a few days to get used to, but I do spend more. 12-string sound is exactly what I wanted (Jeff Buckley forces ...).
But the disont on any suitor: to have it, we must seek, and to try it, it will Pigalle in Paris. It is located between 1600 and 1800 euros, come with hard case. I saved for, and I do not regrtte.
