    This showed up yesterday, to my excitement! 20180612_184138-1.jpg I played it alot yesterday, now i'm just diggin in today and its a blast. Ive never owned an electric 12 so it's all new. The Monel strings just do not work on this ( don't balance well) so i ordered some Slinky's, i will try to put up a demo when i get them. It's a killer guitar and E man did great with some junky old stuff i sent him:D. 20180612_184149-1.jpg 20180612_184207.jpg

    Very cool. I’ve been getting the jones for an eman guitar with all the cool builds he’s doing. I’d love and electric 12 string

    Right on, the big Astro body really works well for a 12. No neck dive with this slab.
