Sihan - thanks! - not sure, they're out there, they show up every once in awhile.
Certainly not a high-value guitar, but man - feels good, sounds good and makes me
smile just to look at it.
One of my long-time guitar techs who I brought it to as soon as it arrived recommended
replacing the stock tune-o-matic bridge on the 12 to better unit with individual saddles for
each string - we ended up with a Duesenberg 12-String Bridge.
Intonation is spot on now - and the guy who worked on it, a seen-it-all,
done-it-all grizzled veteran with decades in the guitar-fixing biz, said it might be the best playing & sounding
12 string electric he's tried - asked for 1st dibs if I ever decide to let it go!

Just did sold-listings search on Reverb, six showed up - among them, something
I'm now going to have to keep on eye out for - natural finish with white-faced pickups.

Not to forget the Crimson Red Transparent S-73-12:

I believe the green one was called "Teal Transparent", and also came with both black or white versions:

I have a green 12-string that sounds great, but that I struggle to keep in tune; thanks much for the bridge suggestion.
