    I'm looking at the twelve string but wondering why the six string versions costs so much more.

    The Bigsby adds a little and the extra tuners make a smaller difference on the other. Is there any difference in the build time or construction or complexity that would explain the extra?

    It must be S&D. Fewer people want a high-end electric twelve-string, AFAIK.
    I'd love one!

    My older brother was a typically broke young father of three for a while and only owned one guitar, a 12-string. He played it for years with only six strings.
