The first Stratocaster we owned.

Always loved the sound of a 12-string. Prior to this one we had a Rickenbacker-copy which sounded fine but was an absolute beast to tune, keep in tune and play. My fingers hurt thinking of it.

And then, during our honeymoon period with Guitar Center Cologne, we randonly picked this one up while visiting the store and were astonished: It was (and still is) so easy to play, and it has all the tonal flexibility of a Stratocaster.

Still, to this day, the most practical and enjoyable twelve string we know.

We have also learned that, where Bruce Springsteen believes that, no matter how dense a mix is, you can always fit in a Glockenspiel, in our house the same goes for 12 string guitar.
