Thanks in advance for any replies ��
I did once, it was a 12 fret - like a Martin D12-20. I can't show you a picture because it imploded in weeks and the luthier gave me my money back ... long time ago.

12 fret dread 12 string ? Look for a used D12-20 and pay a luthier to make it good - this is mine, a '64 rebuilt by Martin in '98, and "blinged" up with a x35 trim.
