An Affordable 12-string SolutionDoubling the amount of strings of a normal dreadnought presents a series of design challenges for any acoustic builder. The added tension on the neck and body frequently results in untamed action on the fretboard and uncooperative tuning. Not so with the DR-212. Epiphone has outfitted this guitar with chrome die-cast machine tuning heads to enhance the stability of the strings. The solid mahogany back and sides with select spruce top have been specially braced to withstand the pressures of 12-strings, making this a durable and long-lasting guitar. Plus, the expanded projection and sustain achieved with this style of build helps this 12-string produce a bright, bold sound.
