I bet the answer is GAS?
I have tried to solve that puzzle with this .... ''making'' one.
Not happy yet ... lets see after these.
Great question, yes there was a high strung 6-string called a Nashville, which as you would guess had Nashville strings, (Normal B and High E, with lighter strings used for the :Low E, A, D and G.
This was sold by Wechter Guitars around 2009. It uses different nut slots, has a different neck relief, and lighter bracing so that the top can resonate with the light gauge E,A,D, G strings.
I have the Mosaic and it’s good for live.
I have a Burns Double Six for recording.
I have a Mosaic pedal that I received as a gift. It's pretty great. I keep thinking I'll sell it at some point, but then I plug it in and enjoy the heck out of it.
It's better than some of the DAW plugins I've used for the same effect, and better than any of the modelling pedals I've used that have a Whammy-style effect that can give you the octave/12 string effect.
It's reliable, sounds good and sits in the mix well, and it's much less work than tuning and hauling around a 12-string for a song or two.
What comes to 12 string ... this is pretty nice:
That sounds great ! I'm a 12 string freak myself , owning 3 of them
I am very tempted to get one of these.
I think if you keep your expectations realistic (some of the people above are really missing that point), the Mosaic may be the perfect solution to avoid schlepping your 660/12 to a gig and/or jam session.
Ideally, I would have a Rickenbacker 360/12C64---but that's at least 3,000.00 USD. But I believe a Mosaic would tide us over.
I recently put up a post about the C4 synth. I can't help but wonder if it would be possible to tweak it to get what you want or download a patch someone else already created. Certainly not plug and play but way more versatile. about 40-50 dollars more expensive. Just a thought.
Yes, yes, yes. Thank you.
The Roland MIDI processor:
heck, I think the Roland processor can even do different tunings as well.
While I do have a 12 spring (Reverand), for my pedalboard I use a Digitech Mosaic with a JangleBox to achieve a vey realistic 12 string effect when using a six string.
The latest release of the Helix firmware includes a 12 string emulator.
I've got two 6/12 doublenecks (neither one of them the SG style). Both pretty much sit under the bed in huge cases. Both are heavy , and honestly, I really haven't found a really good excuse to haul them out, except to show off occasionally. But they're definitely cool.
Another option you probably haven't thought of: get a Variax. The Variax guitars all have both electric and acoustic variants built in, and you can switch from those models to standard mag pickups (on the newer versions) and/or to other guitar models (LP, tele, strat, SG, 335, etc.) pretty quickly. If you have a Helix or an HD500X, you can run the Variax through a dedicated VDI cable that not only powers the guitar, but also allows you to change guitar models in user presets (along with the usual amps/cabs/FX, etc.) with a single stomp.
And since we're mentioning the Helix, it's worth noting that the 3.0 version of the firmware does a helluva job emulating a 12-string with guitars other than the Variax, too.
I had a Mosaic, and even though it made some interesting sounds, I could not get it to sound even close to a 12-string.
The best pedal by far, if it's a Byrds /McGuinn/Rickenbacker sound you are looking for is a Janglebox compressor.
I have used one for years and my 12 srting guitars are a Burns Double Six, Ibanez AR3212 and a Dean Boca with Rickenbacker toaster pickups fitted.
Here's a couple of sound bytes from Janglebox's site : -

I've got 2 of them , JangleBox and JangleBox JBX......awesome pedals for both 6 and 12 string . Was going to sell the Janglebox but deciding against it now .
Wow that janglebox sounds good - I might have to dig one up. I used a Danelectro 6/12 for a while as they sound great and are light. At least until my manager sent me a photo of Ace Frehley's space boots - basically saying it didn't suit my vibe very well lol. Then I found my Hofner 12 but as there's only 2 of them it's not on anyone's list
