A Perfect First 12-string Guitar!

The Epiphone DR-212 lets you say it in 12 strings instead of six, so you can enjoy even richer, stronger acoustic tone - and give yourself a new sonic palette to explore. And thanks to its affordable price, that signature 12-string sound doesn't have to be out of reach. The DR-212 features a select spruce top with scalloped bracing and features a mahogany body and a mahogany neck to balance its strong voice with warmth. With its blend of quality woods and superb tone, Epiphone DR-212 is the perfect first 12-string guitar.

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.

Perfect first 12 string.

I just got my DR212 today and I'm more than happy with it. First of all it came 2 days early. I was super pumped to see that fed ex driver pull up and get out with that box. Props to Sweetwater for that. The guitar itself is everything I wanted. I don't have anything to compare it to, but I was very hesitant after reading reviews online. There seems to be a large amount of people who think you have to spend at least 500 on a 12 string to get something playable. I've been playing all the Zeppelin tunes that I wanted this thing for and it sounds great to me. I can't wait to jam with it around a camp fire.

Great Guitar

This guitar sounds big and bright. I keep it tuned to e-minor and the action is still great.

The Best!

I can't thank you guys enough for the exceptional customer service I have received. I was a CSR,so I know what you have to deal with on a daily basis. I have gained a lot of knowledge from Ashton and he's been right there when I have a question. What I really like is the customer follow up. I'm loving my new guitar but I really want a Taylor guitar now, so when I'm ready to invest in another guitar, I will buy from Sweetwater. Thank you Ashton and everyone who got my guitar ready to ship. Merry Christmas!

Don't think twice, just buy it

This guitar is beautiful with a flawless finish. I was a little concerned as it isn't very expensive but I am totally blown away at the looks, the sound and the build quality. The tuning machines all turn smoothly and the neck is strong and (after a truss rod adjustment) straight. Action is surprisingly good. I especially like the compensated bridge, a nice touch. I had considered a different guitars that costs a few times more but I am so glad I didn't pay the extra money. This is without a doubt the best bang for the buck in for a 12-string guitar you will ever find!

Amazing value! Great 12 string guitar for an amazing price. If you always wanted to try out a 12 string then grab a DR-212 now. Quality and playability of a more expensive instrument at a very affordable price.
