"Agreed, that looks gorgeous Jason.  Never even thought about changing the pickguard on mine... until I saw that picture!"

"Hi Logan, Sorry to read that your Framus isn't worth repairing. I met a guy who repaired one with a block issue himself, but I think doing so he wasted the time that should have used to play on a better one. I can't give advice on recent…"

Your Telecaster weighs more than your Lead Paul? That is different. Your Teli must be rather old. I've never saw a heavier guitar than a Lead Paul.

Just a thought - I did this with my daughter's guitar - Jud actually went to the Walden dealer (very close to him) to check out the T550 for me. I'm sure he'd check out the S12's at Quarternote as well - he found them because he's got 12 string GAS as well - mine is in remission (for now...) ;-)

Logan -

I don't know whether you want electronics or a straight acoustic but, if you'd be willing to have one shipped to you, Quarternote Music in NC has 2 Seagull S12's - one straight acoustic, one with the Q1 electronics - for good prices.  Supposedly 2010 models, but brand new, the acoustic is in the $300's and the Q1 is in the $400's - leave a comment for Jud Hair (who posted about them) for more exact prices...

Since you loved the 6 string, you'd probably love the 12-string as well... :-)

You are quite welcome :-)
The cedar-topped Seagull Coastline Cedar 12 has a satin finish - shop in my town has one w/QI electronics - I played it recently - beautiful sound, a bit warmer than my Giannini, which is solid spruce-topped, laminate pau-ferro/morado (Bolivian Rosewood) back and sides. Spruce/rosewood, typically, is a slightly warmer combination than spruce/mahogany, IMHO...
Also, you could look at the LAG Tramontane T200D12, which is a nice-looking solid cedar topped instrument - I've never played one...
Good Luck!

The Art & Lutherie 12 is about $500 with electronics - sorry...

Logan - just read your comment about your Framus 12-string - sorry to hear about that...

But you also asked for recommendations - so...

Are you looking for spruce or cedar topped?  My recommendations include:

Seagull S12 - solid cedar topped, laminate wild cherry back and sides - about $400 street (w/o electronics)

Norman B18-12 or Norman B20-12 - the 18 is cedar topped, the 20 spruce...

Simon & Patrick Woodland 12 Spruce

Art & Lutherie 12 Cedar Antique Burst - about $500 street (w/o electronics)

The 4 above are from the Godin family of acoustic guitars - made in Canada!

Also, Walden makes a good 12 string - the D552 - solid spruce top, laminate mahogany back and sides - about $370 street - here's a link to one at an online dealer I respect in NC (I bought my daughter's Walden T550 from him) - http://holeinthewood.com/acoustic-guitars-dreadnought-c-1_6/walden-guitars-d552-12-string-natura-series-dreadnought

Finally, I would strongly suggest that you try to find a Giannini Craviola 12-string to play - I have one, and they are extremely comfortable to play, and have a fantastic tone...

Enjoy the hunt!
