I love 12 string accoustics. I have never bought one cuz I dont play accou that much, plus I figure the 12s are somewhat limited to just strumming unless you really have skill.
But, Ive been looking at them alot lately. today, I played a Taylor grand auditorium 12 and it played like #$!%! butter.. The action was lower and lighter than my accoustic. Ive never looked at the GA line cuz of the smaller body and no electronics, but it still put out a nice big sound.. Definately want!!
Any drawbacks to that size?
Just a side note, I only went to the shop to look for a cheap accou for one of my daughters. found a nice sounding and playing Ibanez for about $180
BTW, Im guessing the model was probably a GA-3
