It's my first Takamine and my first 12-string, an instrument I've wanted for 50 years. Being a photographer it's always fun for me to shoot my instruments. The aesthetic beauty of the guitar provides many ways to get creative.

Thanks for looking!

Tom

Thanks WeaserP & Tacky.

She's a beauty and the workmanship and build quality is as good as I've seen on any instrument. I need to work on the action as it's a little high for my taste but there seems to be plenty of room for adjustment.

Lovely!
I am a firm believer in cutaways for 12 strings.
Both of mine are cutaways and I love the looks and sound and accessibility to the upper frets.

My 6-string acoustic is a cutaway also. I almost bought a far less expensive 12-string without cutaway and without electric. I realized that I would eventually not be happy with that purchase so I decided it would save me money in the long run. I think I made the right decision so far.

Hi Tom,
Great pictures of a nice guitar. The EG52312 is a very nice looking guitar with it's solid spruce top and flamed maple body. I owned this same model for several years and will vouch for it's good tone, playability, and bulletproof construction. My friend liked it also and talked me into selling it to him. Hope you enjoy your 12 string.

Blues
