    I just picked up this little beauty. An Ibanez 12-String! Love everything about it. Size is comfortable and love the on board electronics. It has a wonderful acoustic tone as well.
    I tuned it down a half step and it plays like my old Martin D12-20.
    Here are some pics. Have a great day everyone!

    There’s a hole in my heart that can only be filled by playing a 12 string on a Southern Night, have you ever felt a southern night?

    Man that is a nice one, awesome figured grain you have there! And the mother of “pearlfling” is great!

    Nice. Had an Ibby 6 string acoustic that I liked a lot. It was my beater guitar but I have a hangup about beating guitars so it stayed pretty pristine. 12 String acoustics are fun. Throw a pickup in and the sonic range becomes quite orchestral. Enjoy!

    That looks fantastic. Another example that shows we're in a golden age of guitar building.

    Archtops, Congratulations, knowing it is a 12 string, gives +1 bonus, having it being an Ibanez with multi-wood bracing makes it a workhose +2 , understanding that Ibanez guitars can be set up to play amazing +2, knowing that it has a Fishman system +2 points, looking at that beautiful woodgrain gives +4, that gives it an 11 out of 10 in my book. Thanks for sharing your NGD with us.

    Congrats. A real beauty. That grain is killer. I had a a 12 string acoustic at one time in our gospel band. A real lovely full sound...still don't know why I let it go.

    I did know that. We’re 12-string kin!

    I’ve never seen that before. Is that the latest trend in acoustics?
