Thanks Dave.

Just noticed my error, the neck width Is 1 7/8"! Looks like laminated mahogany sides. It's pretty light for a 12-string. Just running through my rep of 12-string tunes and having fun. Playing a 12-string does require more hand strength to play clean chords. Man, it's probably gonna make playing 6- string easier.

Congrats!  A 12 string is fun once in a while.

Well it's NGD For me. Made the trade for a Fender DG-14S/12. My old friend Ray had it set up pretty well, it's not got a 1 7/8" neck width, but seems to feel really well in my hands. Sound and build quality are pretty good for an inexpensive 12-string. Sitka spruce top, mahogany back and sides.

The label indicates it was manufactured in China. Don't know much more It sounds good to me, plays well, and I know I'll play it more than the banjo.

But - we can't tell how it looks... ;-(

I'll bet it has a nicely developed color in the top... ;-)

A hardshell case for my Giannini Craviola 12-string came to the lab when I was out yesterday (Monday)!


Seems to fit well...


Made by TKL in Canada - now I have a Brazilian guitar in a Canadian case! ;-)


And, my wife and I got new tie-dye shirts in Cocoa Beach!
