    I have always felt that Taylor was making some of the best modern 12 strings available. Congratulations on yours.

    I've been at it for about 50 years. The desire to own one has always been there, lurking in the background. This just happened to be the first time that the desire, the money, and the right one for sale at the right price came together.

    A bit over 15 years ago, I bought an acoustic 12 (Takamine F400S) on a whim, and I’ve never regretted it. It’s on the “cold dead hands” list. Never tried a Taylor 12, but I am willing to bet it’s amazing.

    Congratulations!

    I bought this one several months ago. It was, by far, the most money I've ever spent for any guitar, but it was worth it.

    Taylor 12 strings are great - more jangle than Leadbelly, if that's what you're aiming for. I've got a 12-fret 552.

    Congrats. That’s nice.

    Taylor 12 strings are great! Guild used to make a great 12 string as well.
