Yep Robert, I have a SG Entourage Rustic mini-jumbo and love it. I still consider it a "smaller body" guitar, but certainly not a "true" small body. Guess that's subjective to the beholder.


Mike, a buddy of mine has the GS Mini and it's a joy to play, sounds so good and plays so good to be so small.

Had a Taylor GC 12 fret I bought new in 2011. Never really liked the guitar much, but used it a couple times plugged in for playing  (for me) the very rare gig. It was gathering dust, so I tried to sell it and just couldn't find anyone very intersted in buying. I took it to Guitar Showcase here in San Jose to consign it. I was test driving some new Taylors, and picked up a Koa GS Mini. I ended up doing a trade for the little guitar which really sounded better that the GC and plays soooo easy. Anyways, now I have another decent small body that will travel well too.

I agree, the mini-jumbo (such as my Seagull NE Amber Trail are hard to classify as 'small' bodied. Despite the fact it has a tiny waist, the lower bout is wider than a dreadnaught. I can't even say it's thinner.

Couple of beauties Michael, welcome to the group.

Love the Martin.

the only other 000 12 string I know of was another custom one that I saw on UMGF. they have an interesting sound for a 12 string. Not the full, robust sound most of us are used to. Anyway, my Wife thinks they're "cute"

Welcome to the group Michael.

Two very nice guitars.

I have a Simon and Patrick parlour guitar, think it is great fun to play.

Wow - first I've heard of 000 bodied 12 strings - the Martin could be my Recording King RO-10 - with 6 strings added...think RK might have copied
