Affordable 12-String Acoustic Guitar? This Epiphone Is It!
Shoulder your Epiphone DR-212 12-string acoustic guitar, and get ready for the heavenly sound and distinct feel of 12 strings at your fingertips! This melodious axe packs quite a musical punch with its deep-sounding spruce and mahogany body. Each string lies comfortably close to all 20 frets, spanning over a smooth poplar composite fingerboard that welcomes your fingertips every note of the way. A secure bridge anchors each string down securely while leaving room for adequate sustain. If you've never played a 12-string acoustic guitar before, but feel that itch, then this Epiphone is the axe for you.
Mahogany and Spruce Body
Those chorusy-sounding 12-string chords will harness a deep and warm tone with lingering sustain. That's because mahogany does a great job of pushing the lower frequencies. As a tonewood, mahogany will really bring out the dark character of all twelve strings -- yeilding a big sound that'll fill the room quickly. Spruce will bring in a tight crispness to the scene. The pairing of mahogany and spruce is a popular choice for many acoustic guitars, and once you strum all the DR-212's strings for the first time, you'll understand why.
Sturdy Mahogany Neck
Aside from yielding a darker tone with more low end and middle end resonance, mahogany also provides a nice helping of sustain. A smooth and buttery poplar composite fingerboard provides plenty of space for your fingers to enjoy, and all 20 frets harness a comfortable and tight action -- exactly what you need when playing a guitar with so many strings.
Enhanced Stability for a Great Feel and Sound
Your Epiphone DR-212 12-string acoustic guitar utilizes a smart scalloped bracing design. If there is too much stress on an acoustic guitar's body due to string tension, then over time you'll have bowing issues, which will not only affect playability but also intonation. This acoustic guitar will stand up to the tests of time, leaving you with years to explore and see what a fretboard of 12 strings has to offer.
