Thread: 12's out of Oxnard

  1. #1

    12's out of Oxnard

    Discussion with the Sweetwater people about the new 12 strings at summer NAAM. No playing, but interesting and encouraging nonetheless. I laughed at the "Dripping with bad-assedness" comment. Don't think it will replace "Made to be played."
