First off, I didn't know where to put this thread so if it needs to be moved, please feel free. I was on Zzounds website yesterday and I ran across two gorgeous 12-string guitars - one a Gretsch & the other was an Ibanez 12-stringer. All I can say is that the Gretsch is absolutely gorgeous and it's affordable ($949.99) & the Ibanez is $499.00. I can't afford a much-wanted Rickenbacker - that's why I'm trying to decide between the Gretsch and the cheaper 12-string. The Gretsch 12-stringer is much more beautiful than the Ibanez. The Ibanez 12-string looks like an ES-335 HELP! LOL!!!
