As pretty a 12 string as I have ever seen! The sunburst is perfect. Dave

You too, Mike, it will be great to reconnect at Tom’s shindig.

And thank you Tom, much appreciated. Yes, interest in 12-strings seems to come in cycles. We had the 12-string (that Vance bought) hanging around our shop for a while. I really love their sound, so when that other one sold, we got started making this replacement. And actually fairly close in specs to the one Vance got. Mahogany works beautifully for 12’s and we had this set of curly African mahog begging for action. So then we says, “Let’s take it to B.I.G.(er) this year.”
Maybe someone else is looking for some jangle!

It looks very much like the one I bought. Perhaps a little more yellow tint on the top, but color balance is variable in digital pictures.

The 12 string I bought from you with the same specs is, as you know, spectacular sounding. I am not usually a fan of 12 string acoustics, but this guitar is like another thing altogether. And it plays like a dream. If this one is comparable (and I'll bet it is), it will be a big hit at B.I.G.(er).

Hey Vance, thanks for dropping by. And for the very kind word. It would be a treat to have you play this one and do some A-B’ing with yours. Say, you could drop in at Tom’s in September....

Pretty! Does it have sides? Is that a honey colored curl infused oak?

Thanks Bob! It does have sides John, but my phone isn’t big enough to capture them. I’ll pull out the photo equipment soon.

And yes, honey oak.

Awesomeness!

The purfling scheme works so well with the oak color.

Looking forward to checking this puppy out!

Wow, look at the muh-DULL-arry rays in that top! Nothing else dull about this guitar! I think the binding and purfling are brilliant - perfectly ties it all together.
