Default NGD Danelectro 12 string

Nice little electric 12 string. Been playing around with it today. Should add some fun character to my music. Stock pics below, real pics to come soon.

i have a Dano 12 too, great sounding 12 string electric. Love the burst and the F hole. Mine is Black w/no F hole. Good luck with it

I've had my eye on that model for awhile, now.

I'll be looking forward to your review once you've played it a while.

Congrats Todd! Something we don't see too often in the electric guitar world are 12 strings. Have fun.

I've been having a lot of fun with it. The setup is quite good and the tone and playability are great. It really is quite different from a standard 6 string electric.

I haven't researched that, but I'm assuming light gauge, maybe 9s.

I played one at my local GC and I think that they are 9s

Thanks.

I have a real love/hate relationship with 12 strings. Love the sound, hate changing strings.

Enjoy your new one.

Yeah, I have an acoustic Guild 12 string and it's a pain to change strings, so I always use coated strings on it to last longer.
