Product Description

Engineering a 12-string of this quality at such low a price is no easy feat. The perennial 12-string concerns of string tension and tuning stability all had to be considered, and with the DR-212, Epiphone has delivered on all fronts. Great for folk, rock, and country, the DR-212 projects bright, full 12-string tone to fill any room and complement any voice.

An Affordable 12-string Solution

Doubling the amount of strings of a normal dreadnought presents a series of design challenges for any acoustic builder. The added tension on the neck and body frequently results in untamed action on the fretboard and uncooperative tuning. Not so with the DR-212. Epiphone has outfitted this guitar with chrome die-cast machine tuning heads to enhance the stability of the strings. The solid mahogany back and sides with select spruce top have been specially braced to withstand the pressures of 12-strings, making this a durable and long-lasting guitar. Plus, the expanded projection and sustain achieved with this style of build helps this 12-string produce a bright, bold sound.

Features:

- Spruce top with scalloped bracing to ensure stability
- Classic look with chrome hardware and white binding
- Solid rosewood bridge to withstand extra tension of 12-string
- Solid mahogany body with set mahogany neck for excellent tone and sustain
- Epiphone limited lifetime warranty with 24/7/365 customer service

The Epiphone DR-212 clears the common 12-string hurdles of tuning stability and high action, and the result is a bold sounding and affordable guitar. Expand your playing options with a 12-string: the DR-212 is a great choice.

"Worth way more than it costs!"
Overall: I don't think you could find a better 12 string for twice the money.The money you save,you could buy a nice hardshell case for it.there wasn't any buzzing of the strings as you play up the neck.I was very surprised at the quality.I will not hesitate to buy another Epiphone in the future.
Style of Music: blues + rock

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great 12-string for the money!!"
Overall: Okay. It's not top of the line, so you won't expect much. You know how much you have to spend. But, let me tell you the instrument I received (a DR-212NA) is much more than I was expecting. After I had played it intermittently for about two years, I took it to a guitar tech who put in an L.R. Baggs bridge pickup for me ( I had a performance that I wanted to use the guitar for) and he was very complementary about the guitar. He worked on the setup for me after which it became an absolute pleasure to play! It is quickly becoming my go to guitar when I really want to enjoy playing and singing. Such an inspirational sound, man... I do not believe that you will be disappointed. AT ALL!
Style of Music: I play music that I enjoy. That includes all kinds of music, but I come from a Rock/Blues background.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
