Default Anyone familiar with Goldtone’s F-12 mando-guitar

So, I’ve been a 12 string player for a long time and several years ago starting branching out to other 12 string instruments and needed up acquiring a Deering 12 string banjo (awesome but crazy heavy) and recently came across Goldtone’s F-12 “manditar” which has me intrigued ..... and so I’d love to know if anyone else has played one of these and what their opinion is - https://goldtonemusicgroup.com/goldt...struments/f-12

almost seems like a tiple -which has 4 sets of three strings ( 12 strings but not doubles- triples )
Looking like a minature 12 strings seems to me it would be a Pain in the behind -with the narrowish neck and all those strings .
I have a Yamaha guitiele -which is basically a 6 strings uke- which at times drives me nuts - hate to imagine it being 12 strings rather than 6 -
Id like to see this in the hands of a decent player and see what they can do with a 12 string mandolin . id probably be all fumble fingers.
Oh yeeah -just tuning a 12 string guitar can make someone insane -imagine getting this tuned up !

Yeah, I’ve seen the YouTube videos but would love to have a regular player’s input ...
