Yes! I tested and played one in a shop, and it came home with me.






Thanks. Yes, there is always ''a risk'' as stepping in to music shop.

I think I will call few bigger music shops in Copenhagen (Denmark) to check if they have those on sale ... and go there to test one. This is a guitar which I will not gonna buy from any huge Germany/UK net shops.

1000euros is still already lots of money.

1/3 cheaper there would be Guild Starfire I-12 CR

And about half price (just 549euros) Danalectro 59 Vintage 12 String (different colors)
danelectro_59_vintage_12_string_vwh.htm
danelectro_59_vintage_12_string_vwh.htm


Or at 599euros Danalectro 59x12



I'm planning to test all of these.

PS - this is a good case that fits:


Mine needed some work on the nut slots, otherwise some of the strings would stretch sharp when fretted in the first few frets and when using a capo. After the nut slots were cut properly, it works great.

Those are nice colors and believe there both available in the States as well . The Dano's are a nice 12 . Ibenez also makes a 12 string . Anything used in your area ?

Hello,

I noticed that Gretsch has published this kind of guitar. Does anyone here have one these or at least tested/played one in music shop? Personal feeling/opinions?


I've had one of these for a few months now. I'm very impressed with it. It's easier to play than the Rickenbacker 12-string I had been using. Very nice tone...bright and chiming. These are really a bargain, if you ask me. I sold the Rickenbacker for three times what I paid for the Gretsch.
