Great guitar for every cent. I bought this thing not expecting much, but an majorly over-pleased with it. This guitar can easily contend and most likely beat guitars twice or three times its price. I am in love with this guitar. It has all the qualities of more expensive guitars except for a laminated spruce top instead of a solid, no big deal. excellent playability and sounds like a dream.

You can't beat this guitar for the price. The nut was a little sharp on one end, but an emery board took care of that problem. It has stayed in tune for a long time. When I needed to retune due to the cooler temperature, one of the strings broke.

      The 12 string is among my collection of acoustic guitars. I use them to practice with so that I don't need amplification and my hand strength and dexterity will be really good when I play my electric guitars.

          Comments about Epiphone DR-212 12-String Acoustic Guitar:

          This is my Long Term Review. I have had this guitar for a bit over two years now and can give a more complete picture of it.

          First, the good. This is a very well made guitar. Under the pros, you will notice I mentioned Good Construction. This is particularly important in a 12 string. The biggest issue with all 12's is that they tend to come apart very quickly. You will have bowing, warping, separation of glueing, etc. All this is because of the tremendous extra pressure 12's suffer. After 2+ years, this guitar is still solid as a rock, and I leave it strung all the time. So I would say construction and bracing are very good on this instrument. Along with this is the fact that it Stays In Tune. This is another major issue with all 12's. Again, that extra force tends to make them go out of tune quickly. This one holds tune very well, and that is important as tuning a 12 takes some time.

          As for sound, I would say Not too Bad overall, and Really Good for an budget level guitar. It is a little thin for my taste, but there are ways around that. First, throw on a set of decent strings. I prefer Martin Marquise on mine, but personal choice. Second, I like to play through an acoustic amp, and I put a Seymour Ducan Woody on mine. When adjusted correctly, I can get a really decent, full bass sound, lots of body and still keep a nice jangle expected from a 12. Will it sound like a Martin or Gibson, no, but it gives a really nice sound for such a low price.

          As for the negatives, very few. First, keep in mind when Epiphone says "Select Spruce Top," they really mean laminated, not solid. But I suppose there varying qualities of laminated woods as well, and this one is great - really good resonance and sustain. It could maybe do with a better set of tuners, but as said before, it holds tune exceptionally well.

          Overall, for the price, Epiphone makes a really nice and playable guitar. Now am just praying they come out with a Masterbilt version of it.

              Great guitar over all. The tuning keys aren't real responsive. You have to twist a lot for little tuning. The E on the pick guard fell off first day I had it and the stock strings were garbage, actually rusted in spots. Other than that the sound is fantastic and worth every penny. Just throw another set of strings on it.
