||This epiphone has an azmniag sound for under [...] bucks. I've been playing off and on now for about 7 years. I'm not the most experienced or talented guitar player, that's for sure, but I'm no slouch either. This is my first 12 string that I've purchased and I'm pretty happy with it. It has a great full, rich quaulity sound. It's going to take time to get used to picking it after playing a 6 string, but azmniagly the action isn't too much different from a 6 string and you don't have to press as hard as you might think for bars chords or just plain old chords. It's a great looking guitar too. It's a 9 out of 10. I'm sure there are better 12 strings out there, but not for this price.
