NO LONGER AVAILABLE!!! Gibson B25-12 12 String Acoustic Guitar with Pickup, 1965

In the 1960’s, 12-strings like the Gibson B25-12 were very popular, and the 12 was found on many recordings, in Canada especially Gordon Lightfoot’s. Here we’re looking at a Gibson B25-12 from 1965, with some very practical modifications that make it a practical, gigging 12 string with a great vintage sound.

❌SOLD❌Fender Electric XII 12-String Sunburst, 1966

Here’s a rarity from early CBS-owned Fender days – an original Fender Electric XII 12 string with the distinctive ‘bent’ or ‘hockey stick’ headstock! The Fender Electric XII uses the typical Fender approach to guitar construction. The body is Alder in a shape derived from Fender’s offset-waist guitars – the Jazzmaster and Jaguar. The split pickups feed through a rotary four-position switch, allowing a phase reversal in one of the combined positions. The rest of the controls are master volume and master tone.

❌SOLD❌ Taylor LKSM Leo Kottke Signature Model 12 String Natural, 2000

❌SOLD❌ Taylor LKSM Leo Kottke Signature Model 12 String Natural, 2000

The Taylor LKSM – the Leo Kottke Signature Model – is now discontinued but is one of the best choices for fast, articulated 12-string guitar styles. Based on a Jumbo body with an Venetian cutaway, the Taylor LKSM pairs a Sitka Spruce top with Tropical Mahogany for the sides, back, body blocks and neck. The fingerboard and bridge are Ebony, with Indian Rosewood for the head plate and body binding.  The tuners here are gold-plated Grover mini Rot0-Matics, though the specs call for Taylor branded tuners.    As stock, this is a fully acoustic model with no electronics.

❌SOLD❌ Martin D12 20 12 String Guitar Natural, 1968

❌SOLD❌ Martin D12 20 12 String Guitar Natural, 1968

The Martin D12 20 was a slope shouldered, 12-fret 12 string guitar built from 1964 to 1991 with a Sitka Spruce top and Mahogany for the sides, back and neck. Here we’re looking at a Martin D12 20 dating to February of 1968 and built at the Martin plant in Nazareth, Pennsylvania. As a ’20’ model, it is very close to an ’18’ and the key differentiating component is the ‘zipper’ back strip. The top is Sitka Spruce – Adirondack Spruce had been overharvested during WW2 and it would still be decades for recovery. The sides, back, and slotted-headstock neck are Honduran Mahogany and, by the time this post-1967 guitar was built, Indian Rosewood was used for the head plate, bridge and unbound fingerboard.
