Shop built 00-size, 12-fret, 12-string in ladder-braced mahogany/maple, 2” nut, 2 5/16” string spacing, deep, fun, small body 12-string with nice voice


Nice combination of Kay body and luthier made mahogany 12-string neck, this guitar sits very comfortably in your lap and should get along with your right shoulder rather well. Sound is full and resonant. Neck is real easy to play, think Gibson small body 12-string. Affordable 12-string that you’ll just love to show your friends.
