So...I've been playing for 35 years or so and have owned a few dozen 12 strings including acoustic, electric, and acoustic-electric. There's ALWAYS compromise with a 12, and this one is no exception. The pros: sharp looks, a superb neck, decent gig bag, great price point. The cons: The electronics are super basic - volume only, and the country of origin - China. This one will suit my needs for acoustic 12 string recording while plugged in, but not so much when mic'ed up, as it is a tad, just a tad, bit tinny to my ears. The beauty of this neck profile made this one a keeper for me. I can EQ out the tinniness with an EQ when recording when plugged in and that was it's primary function for me. It's not going to have much in the way of resale value, but that's ok due to it's low price point. I'd buy it again, it suits my needs perfectly. Haven't needed manufacturer support, so can't comment on that or warranty.
