I've been pretty happy with my '69 GIbson B-25 12, but I need to do some work on it. It has an adjustable saddle which is doing a lovely job of robbing a significant amount of sound. I keep it tuned down to somewhere around B. Sounds huge. Only paid $599 shipped with a nice TKL hardshell case, too.

I used to play Kottke stuff on a Yamaha beater....it was good until it went back to unplayable. It was a gift...

Still sound like it's worth the 100.

What a hundred now a days????

Anyways..I've hardly touched a guitar and have been playing mando. Today I wandered in to my local shop and they had an old late 70s early 80s Yamaha 12-string with a slot headstock. The Yamaha FG312. I haven't had a 12-string since 2002 and have wanted a beater.

It is an all laminate instrument but it is solid and is REALLY loud. I was impressed. The action is kind of high as the instrument has started to belly on the top. You can tell that it had not been tuned half-step down with a capo and had been left strung in standard for quite awhile. The action could be lowered at the saddle and nut and a quarter-turn adjustment to the truss rod should bring it back. Everything else is solid.

Does anyone have any experience with this line of acoustic?

Here is one I found online. Harmony Central gives solid reviews. This one went for $60. It is on consignment for $100. What should I offer the guy?
