    I've never seen one live and in person. With that price it seems like they're a tad proud of it.

    That looks light a nightmare. Almost twice the string tension on a one piece neck with a 17 degree headstock.

    Not to even mention the neck dive, although, heavy as an LP is it might not be an issue.
    I recently bought a Classic 12 from Eastwood but ended up sending it back because the neck dive was helatious.

    Interesting, but I wouldn't buy it at a third of the price. Love the sound of a 12-string. But I hate playing one and I would loathe tuning it or changing strings. So when I weigh the positives vs. negatives, it was never a question for me.

    In the late 1970s (showing my age) I had a 1965 12 string Vox Phantom (teardrop a la Brian Jones). It actually played very well. Kicking myself for having got rid of it - might be worth something now! But that LPjust looks a bit of a monster.
