Excellent Buy

By Torchure

from Madison, CT

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

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.

Great Value for Great Quality

By classicrockr2112

from San Diego, CA

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

I own a few guitars, one of which is an Epiphone. I often like to go to Guitar Center and check out all of the cool equipment. My friend asked me about getting a twelve-string and I invited him to go with me one weekend. He was a bit deterred by the high prices on the guitars he saw. Then I saw the Epiphone DR-212 12-String Acoustic Guitar and started playing on it. The sound was full and had a surprising good quality. He started playing playing it himself and figured that it was at least 400 dollars. Well, the second I showed him the price tag, he found an employee and asked him to get one from the back so he could buy it. The actual feel and weight of the guitar is good and it plays very nicely. I'm considering getting one for myself and I don't know why I haven't gotten it yet considering the price. That is usually how much a six-string costs and the quality is usually lacking. This guitar probably offers the greatest quality for the lowest price around. I highly recommend this guitar if you're looking for a twelve-string and you are low on funds.

One Great Acoustic

By aerozeppelin14

from Nampa, Id

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

Over the years, i have played many different 12 acoustic guitars, but the Epiphone DR-212 12-String Acoustic Guitar is by far the best one that i have ever played. 12 strings always sound better and fuller than the regular 6 string. But for the price on this guitar, you can not pass it up. This guitar is so great, you practice blues, you can play cords on it. when you play cords they sound richer and fuller than on a 6 string, if you play guitar, you have got to get this epiphone 12 string acoustic. You simply can NOT go with out it. Every guitar player has to have a 12 string acoustic somewhere in there collection. Make this one that 12 string and you are bound to become one great guitar player. Get one today!!! You will thank me later!!!

Epiphone DR-212 12-String Acoustic Guitar

By fRETbURNER750

from Lake Forest, Illinois

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

When my old Epiphone 12 string reached the end of it's reign, I knew I would need a new guitar to replace it. I chose this Epiphone becaues I was pleased with my old guitar's preformance, and I was in need of a cheap price. I 've been playing for 8 years now and this guitar may not be the nicest on the market but the quality of the sound is definitly worth it.

amazing value

By vince

from san francisco

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

I purchased this guitar two months ago, and I have not been able to put the thing down. The action and quality of this guitar is just remarkable. Not to sound redundant or cliche, but it plays like something that cost two to three times more. I really love this guitar and it is one of my favorite instruments to play. It is one of the best sounding guitars I've played, regardless of price...

New 12 String in 1969 and time for a new one in 2009

By Carl White

from Midland City, AL

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

I bought my first 12 string in 1969 when I was in the US Navy and it was great for moral. I enjoyed playing a 6 sting and a 12 string. When I purchased the Epiphone DR-212 I got that old feeling and excitment of playing a 12 string again. It is easy to play and the feel is great! I have played some very expensive 12 strings at various functions and the DR-212 plays as good as any of those. In fact it played better than some that were priced at 3 or 4 times more than the DR-212. My other 12 strings have aged gracefully, but over the years with different climates, traveling and storage the necks have begun to have play in them and tuning them and keeping them in tune is becoming more of a problem. The DR-212 is very well constructed and is lighter weight than the older ones I have. If my wife would let me, I would buy two, one for the music room and one for my workshop (dog house) where I spend a lot of my time. The Gig Bag was a very good buy and it is just right for the DR-212!

Epiphine DR-212

By Scott

from Baltimore, MD

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

I play Breedlove guitars in my acoustic band, but they're very expensive so let me say that this is a very nice guitar for the money. I bought it as a gift for my father, a casual player who wanted a 12 string. The DR-212 is surprisingly well balanced tonally. It's not boomy and I suspect will only get better sounding as it ages and "opens up" The fretwork was quite good but the action was a bit high so I took a little off the bottom of the saddle. The factory strings are not of very good quality so I would order a couple sets of your favorite brand to go with your new guitar.

Great Bargain

By cjh

from Enid, OK

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

Great action, but with a little bit of fret vibration at the stock settings. Not enough to be a real detractor, though--definitely a beautiful, rich, full sound for a great price. I highly recommend this guitar for anyone wanting to add the sound of a 12-string to a small-scale music production.

Great Value

By Johnny Rebel

from Fairfax, Va

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

I have an acoustic 6 string and an electric 6 string. I decided to get a 12 string and bought the Epiphone DR 212. My first reaction when opening the box was surprise at the quality of the construction. I started playing the guitar and was amazed by the full rich sound. It holds its tuning well and is very easy to play. I paid less than $150 for this guitar and am very happy with the value. As others have said, it sounds and plays like a guitar costing much more. I highly recommend the Epiphone DR 212

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

I bought this guitar to learn how to play 12-string before I went out and bought a super expensive one and I am glade I did. This guitars action is as good as my ovation. If you looking to learn 12-string you can not go wrong with this guitar.

Great First 12 String

By Clyde

from Marrero, Louisiana

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

Hey All: I purchased mine from the store in New Orleans and got a great deal on it. I had it professionally set up at the store and had a MiSi Pickup installed in it, and let me tell you that pickup really brings out the beautiful sound that this instrument makes. It sounds like a choir of angels singing in harmony to me. The sales associate was very helpful and knowledgeable of all the guitars in the store. My hats off to all of Guitar Centers Sales Associates.

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

    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.

    Really Nice 12 string Guitar

    By Won

    from Maryland

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

    I feeling love with the 12 string when my guitar instructor played with his Taylor 12 string ($3000). Well, I couldn't pay for that for 12 stings. One Sat, I parked myself at Guitar Center and play the entire guitar on display for 3 hours until the guy give me a look. Make the story short; I love this Epiphone DR-212-12. It plays like Taylor and sounds even like it. Stay tuned and sound great. I am so glad I got it. Only on issue, not related to guitar. Finding Guitar case is mess. It cost as much as guitar to find a nice case.

      outstanding

      By Frank Castle

      from Gate City, Va

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

      All right you 12 string lovers, I recently bought one of these DR 212's. I was a little skeptical about buying a guitar without being able to put my hands on it first. But I went ahead and ordered one and believe me I am more than satisfied with this guitar. For the price, you can't go wrong. Right out of the box this guitar was ready to play with a tuning job. Strings are close the fret board which was a concern before I got my hands on it. I had a 12 string years ago and you just can't get that sound out of your head. This guitar is beautiful and sounds great. I would highly recommend this guitar to any one who is looking for an economical 12 string. I would also like to thank Davy for his help with my order, he answered my questions honestly and made a suggestion on an other guitar that I purchased at the same time.

      LOVE IT! highly recomend!

      By Shai

      from Idaho

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

      I bought this for my husband, I don't know anything about guitars, but the reviews were positive and the price is great, so i figured if he didn't like it we'd return it. there will be no return for us, this guitar sounds amazing! First time i have ever heard a twelve string, it's an awesome sound! I was also a little worried it would be difficult to play for him, being so used to a 6 string, he picked it right up, not dificult at all. great buy!! i'd recomend to anyone.
