Choice woods for rich acoustic tone
Epiphone gave the DR-212 all the right tonewoods to achieve a rich tone. For a strong voice, it features a select spruce top with scalloped bracing, while warmer-toned mahogany comprises its back, sides, and neck. A natural finish gives the DR-212 a classic look.

It's affordably priced, but offers up excellent tone, so you can hone your skills and take your playing in a new direction.

A very nice instrument
by Terry Hoffman from KansasIf you're looking for an acoustic 12 string give this one serious consideration. I just recieved mine the other day and I was very pleased and not surprised because I own several EPI guitars and I en... read more [+]joy all of them. This is a beautiful and well made guitar as I expected it would be. I made a very LIGHT adjustment to the truss rod and, the action improved GREATLY. The strings that it came with aren't the best, most aren't but, I'll play them till their done, I've already ordered some D'Addario EJ41's and I'm sure these will improve the sound and playability to suit my taste. There aren't a whole lot of cases that fit this instrument just do the overall length but the one I'm looking at is the Gator GL Dread 12-string Lightweight Guitar Case

It appears to be the best choice for my needs. I have an SKB case for my Flying V that is this type of case and, it's perfect for my needs. Think I'll do a Seymour Duncan SA-3HC Hum-Canceling Woody PU to complete this purchase as I do not wish to install anything permanent or alter the instrument in any way. Great sounding,Great looking and, for the right price. close [-]
Playability of the DR-212
by Pat Costa from Lexington, VAI was pleasantly surprised with the guitar. I immediately changed the strings and slightly touched up the neck truss and started to play. Very good tuners, stay in tune with hard playing and after day... read more [+]s of non use. The neck is not too wide as many 12 strings are. The finish is as good as any guitar. If I have any criticism it would be it does not project quite as good as a $2000.00 guitar. But then I did not pay that much, did I? I would highly recommend this guitar to anyone of any playing caliber. close [-]

Highly recommended if you're looking for a "once in a while" or fill in guitar close [-]
