    Yep me too! I have a 1971 Epiphone 12 string and a 1979 Rick 330 12 - both great guitars.

    I have a 12 string Grestch on the way lol.

    I learned they made their first 12 at the request of the Monkees, specifically Nesmith.

    Nice 12 strings. Think I will try playing or carrying a tune in a bucket, before I try a 12 stringer.

    You're correct , no case on the D'Angelico 12 Stupid Deal of The Day . That deal is the Premier Fulton . The one I posted ( photo ) is the Excel Fulton ( comes w/case ) which I played at their showroom in NYC . If anyone gets the chance to go to the D'Angelico Showroom , you'll love it ( call ahead ) . A great staff and so many guitars . They've really come a long way

    I owned a double neck Mosrite for a couple of days back around 68. Never again.

    Thanks, man. I got it used back in like 88 or so. I never knew much about it, but I dug it out a few weeks ago and looked up the serial and model. Turns out it's a mid-70s model and aside from one ding just below the bridge it's pretty mint. It's the only acoustic i've ever owned, oddly enough.
     
  17. That is cool . . .

    fwiw, Ian Bairnson was a session guitarist before joining with David Paton to form Pilot . . .
    and in the band's hit single 'Magic' (#5US #11 UK), Ian uses mostly the 6-string side 'cept for the cool interlude riff up on top with the 12-twanger.
    Bairnson became "one of the core members" of The Alan Parsons Project.

    Yeah, not a 12 I know, but I just stumbled on this yesterday. Certainly a novel take on double neck guitars. fwiw, enjoy!
