Ever looked at your acoustic guitar and thought to yourself, “I want more?” Then our range of 12 string acoustic guitars are for you. Richer tones and a bolder ‘chorus’ like sound, the 12 string acoustic guitar has been used by many musicians down the years; From Springsteen, David Gilmour and Led Zepplin to The Beatles, Tom Petty and The Eagles.
There is also a fairly low skill barrier for entry, so there is no need to feel intimidated by the extra 6 strings. If you can play a normal acoustic guitar, like a dreadnought or a parlour guitar. Then you can play a 12-string acoustic guitar.
To accommodate for the extra strings, 12 string acoustic guitars are built with wider necks, longer headstocks and often have flatter fingerboards. For beginners - the usual experience of fretting, strumming and picking will feel relatively familiar, there are some differences you should employ in your technique, when playing a 12-string acoustic guitar.
The extra strings bring with them a lot more tension on the guitar neck, which means that playing with any sort of intricacy over a period of time will require fingers made of steel. However, the warm sound from the rich tones a 12 string provides sounds like nothing else.
