Yes! I tested and played one in a shop, and it came home with me.
Looks like they have this guitar in two colors in Europe:
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)
Or at 599euros Danalectro 59x12
I'm planning to test all of these.
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?
