Thread Name: 12 String Guitars - why?
Subject: RE: 12 String Guitars - why?
It wouldn't necessarily make it louder down at the deep end. That is largely a matter of resonance, mostly of the top, and ladder frames behave very differently from X-braced guitars. I keep all of my 12s up at concert, but only use light (10-47) strings.
