I always wanted a 12 string rickenbacher but just never got round to it. Anyway I went in a local guitar shop just for a browse and I tried out some acoustic 12 strings. I expected them to be terribly uncomfortable to play, but one was surprisingly good so I walked out with a£150 guitar. It happens to be a Fender but that was irrelevant, I took it back a month later and had a pick-up fitted. I'd show you a picture but it's currently back at the shop having a loose wire fixed and a re-string (I just couldn't be bothered to do it myself). Anyway, just to echo everyone else I love it, and I'll always own a 12 string, but think of it as a rhythm guitar in the main.
