Fazool has a good point. There is incredible variety in the custom built world. Lots of builders making great guitars but they each have their own take on it and as a result the characteristics of the guitars vary a lot. As an example, go to the Dream Guitars website and search for 12 string....amazing variety, with small factories and many single luthiers represented.

So I'd rephrase Fazool’s comment and suggest that if you want a custom build you first find the custom builder(s) that make the style of guitar that you really like, and then talk to those builders about a 12 string.

If we knew more about the guitars you currently like to play we could maybe be a bit more specific with our suggestions.
