Robert Hancox replied to Martin van Dooremalen's discussion A/B/C on the 12's I was considering in the group 12-String Guitar
"I know you're looking towards a higher end 12-string, but if you can find one, give the Yamaha FG720-12 a listen. You may be surprised. Maybe not, but worth a listen for $350. Here's a link to a recording I've made with it: "

"I had forgotten that I'd even posted this. Thanks for the reply and the offer. However, I actually came up with a melody about 6 months later. I was messing around with the tune and the melody just came to me. I even added lyrics and then…"

Robert Hancox replied to Mark Eldridge's discussion Looking For A Budget 12-String in the group 12-String Guitar
"Check out the Yamaha FG-720S-12. It sells anywhere from $300 to $350, typically. Yamaha makes a quality instrument, so you can't go wrong there, and the tone is quite satisfying. Many will tell you to be aware of "affordable"…"

"I just use my regular Shubb for a drop E tuning.  Put it on the second fret from the treble side so it covers the first 5 strings."

"The Sabine capo.  I have one of those that I got in the mid-seventies.  I took the little springs out in the first week I had it.  I still have it, but like you, don't use it much."

Adriaan N Roggeveen replied to Robert Hancox's discussion Capo Gallery in the group Capo Users Group
"Kyser for 12-string and my old 'clamp down' in need of repair. Now that hte neck has been reset on my 12, the Kyser 4 12-string might even work. Peace, Adriaan"

Adriaan N Roggeveen replied to Robert Hancox's discussion Capo Gallery in the group Capo Users Group
"Still have this one for my MArtin 12-string and while I have rebuilt it over the years it works better than the Kyser 12-string and my first rejected G7. I had a double stretch which finally disintergrated. Now that the 12's neck has been reset…"

I have a book from Guitar Player on how to build and fix guitars.So I followed their advice on using super I took a tube that had the long pointy end and cut it on the bias.1st I put tape around the whole bridge and I had two clamps that where long enough to reach the bridge.And also a piece of wood alittle larger than the bridge,with a soft cloth between the piece of wood and the bridge.I quickly put in the glue in under the bridge I used a thin peice of a metal shim I had to help it get in there good, then I put the clamps on and tightened it up and the next day it was perfect.But now I tune down a whole step.

Hey Robert,
Nice recordings. I haven't heard any Dave Mason in ages. That's one of my favorite all time songs.

Hey Robert,
Thanks for your recent comment on my "Watching the River Run" video!" I appreciate your kind much so that I put your quote on my website on the "People Are Talking" Page.
Here is the direct link to the page to see your quote! I added it to the "In reference to seeing "Watching the River Run" video:" about halfway down the page. Thanks, Edward

Hi Robert,
I picked up my FG 720S-12 yesterday. I've enjoyed it quite a bit. The action is lower than I was expecting and I really like the guitar's neck. You are correct about the sound having a sweet middle & high. Thank you for confirming my guitar choice with advice and the videos you've posted. Take care.
