This Guitar is an incredible buy!

By LesPaul72

from Texas

I recently purchased this guitar after much research and reading many reviews. I had never played it before my purchase. When it arrived, I was blown-away. The quality and sound are incredible. I never expected this much guitar for the price, but I was pleasently surprised. I own a Strat, Les Paul, and a Yamaha accoustic, so I am used to playing a fine guitar, and believe me this is one "fine guitar". A 12 string is a little hard on the fingers at first, but with just a little practice, it becomes very easy. It took me a long time to make up my mind on which brand to buy, but since I own a Strat, I knew Fender quality would be high. I just don't know how they can make this guitar for such a low price. Believe me, you won't be sorry with this purchase.


PERFECT 12....

By HawkeyeMartin

from Greensboro, N.C.

I've had this guitar for a couple of years now and it is still amazing. The tone is beautiful and the electronics are some of the best for its price.I picked the black one simply for the white binding, and the little things like the snowflake inlays are what make this guitar so great. A breeze to tune and action that is unmatched this is a must buy for fender or 12-string fans.P.S. unpluged this is one of the loudest acoustic guitars I've Played in my 11 years of experience!


Very Good Buy!

fender 12 string

By jesse jones

from ontario

i was looking to buy a 12 string for 6 months. i was set on the normon b-20, which has the same fishman preamp and is made of the same material. however the fender plays better and is a better looking guitar. i definatly made the right choice with the fender.


A Great Guitar, Certainly Made For The Stage

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

This Fender is a more than a great guitar. In fact, you'll want to take it out and play with it every moment you can. The sound is robust and pleasant, and the feeling it evokes is certainly impregnated in every note it plays.I'm a professional musician, and I have played a lot of excellent options that I also love so much (Martin, Gibson,... ), and I can say that this is a guitar that I'll be bringing with me to every tour date.

Great 12 String sound

By KC_Soloman 5000

from DeRidder, LA

See all my reviews

This is full bodied so it has more sound than the cut-aways I have played. I played this once and bought it! The only issue I have is that the action is higher than what I like. I am adjusting as I change strings. (not the fun part of having a 12 string)But the tuner is great and makes tuning a breeze. The pick-up sings through my amp and the build quality is flawless. Definately a good intermediate 12 string! A True Must Buy!
