Value For Money : Excellent
The guitar was made in Korea.

The handle has a 24 frets and a binding. The key is in Rosewood

There are two types of microphones "EW-Retro Humbuckers. They can be adjusted by two knobs volume and tone (a tone Knob microphones, it would have been the top). The switch allows three types of positions (neck, neck / bridge, bridge).

I find rather ugly pickguard. Otherwise, I knob one that came off but fortunately after delivery of my shovel.

UTILIZATION

The handle is it nice?
The handle is nice but it is a twelve string, it is a particular game.

Access to acute (last string) Is it easy?
The access to the last frets is easy.

Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?
I think the guitar is well balanced. I find it takes much note (no need to retune too, which is rather a good point when we know that to grant a twelve string is necessarily longer)

SOUNDS

It's great for a lefty who want to play the jangle pop or take to the Byrds. I recommend the neck position is one that gives the dreaded 60's sound.

Otherwise, the micro-retro hambuckers are excellent and I sometimes use this guitar to record myself when I play only in agreement because the sound is better than one of my six-string (my epiphone sheraton with microphones Factory).

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for some months.

Did you try many other models before getting this one?
But not the choice of left-handed 12-string guitar is rather limited (if it exists??)

- What is your opinion about the value for the price?
Excellent. When I think about the price of a used rickenbacker 12 string, is unbeatable

- What is so special that you like best?
Sound, sound, sound

- What is so special that you like least?
Rie, I do not find anything wrong. It's just a type of game that must be tamed (not even how to use his pick, not the same pressure on the frets, no bend) but this relates more twelve-string guitars in general than this in particular.

- Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? ...
Yes, yes and yes

I want to emphasize that, to my knowledge, the only twelve-string electric left-hander who is still in production.
