    First off, a big shout out to dmcintyrelee. He posted this geeter for sale and we quickly texted, I sent the payment, and wham bam it was on it's cross country trip from Santa Cruz to good ol' Cumming, Georgia. No fuss, no muss, no BS, fast shipping, the guitar is exactly as described. I haven't tuned it or plugged it in yet but I have zero worries

    Folks, this is how a guitar sale is supposed to go!

    Nice! Use a good tuner, you'll find tuning a 12 string isn't near the chore it's cracked up to be. I just restrung mine (Guild F 412) for the first time, that was a bit of work, but still not that bad. And oh, that sound!

    Wow, that box is in good shape. The only time I got an instrument via delivery that didn't look like everything inside was busted was when I picked it up at the UPS center!

    I'm not that fancy. I'm not even that good of a player, I just have fun.

    Right now I'm on my front porch in some surprisingly great weather for North Georgia June weather (humidity is way down, sunny, 76), plugged into a Pocket Pod (set to Tube Clean with default settings) and annoying my neighbors.

    Dunno why but my fingers kinda hurt lol

    Jack Straw by the Grateful Dead, a beautiful and strummy song.

    I have an old Sigma 12 acoustic I rarely play and admit I had to look up if the Gs are an octave apart or in unison.

    I know...and using aa
    I know :)

    Even using a tuner one of the high Es blew on me. Defective string I suppose, and I had another .010 on hand. No biggie.

    To be honest, out of the three guitars I've had shipped this box was in the worst shape. Knowing the guitar was in a hardshell case I didn't bat an eye.

    It sounds wonderful, but y'all knew that already.

    I reckon I need to see how to fuss with the compressor function on this Pocket Pod.

    WOOHOO is right!!! You're gonna love it. Had a 12 string acoustic once and have been cursing myself for selling it. Lovely full tone...takes a bit longer to change strings and tune but it's well worth it. Have fun and congrats on a great transaction from both sides.
