Combining the timeless appearance and enduringly popular tone of the "0" body style with a 12-string configuration has resulted in this unique new model. With a sound that belies its small size, the 0 12-String has exceptional note separation with a quick attack and beautiful harmonic complexity. The smaller body dimension and short 24 7/8" scale also imparts a percussive quality to the note attack that makes this an exceptional finger style and recording guitar. With a sound and feel all its own, the 0 12-string brings something new to this classic design.
*Instrument is shown with optional maple back, sides, and neck.
