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.

The perfect first 12-string
Twelve-string guitars have a signature voice - one that's particularly well suited to solo acoustic performances, whether that's onstage or in the living room. If you already play acoustic guitar, but don't yet own a 12-string, the Epiphone DR-212 is the perfect first instrument. It's affordably priced, but offers up excellent tone, so you can hone your skills and take your playing in a new direction.

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.

Extreme Value!

When this showed up, I put on a great set of ultra-lights, tightened the truss rod and I am super impressed. At this price, I was keeping my expectations low but I got it to play so nicely and I love the sound. I have never owned a 12-string before so I had to go the the interwebs to learn some of the finer points of tuning one (and no, if you want to get some of the most interesting sounds out of it, it is not as simple as just using a tuner to find A440), but once I learned how to tune it, I can't put this thing down.

My Epiphone Experience

I bought the Epiphone on a whim and want. It arrived as promised, the guys at Sweetwater kept their promise. I pulled it out of the box, tuned it up, and it sounded a little flat. However, I was not disappointed. All the reviews I read had recommended changing out strings and doing a set-up. My local music store, charged me 45 bills, plus strings. Once my purchase went through a set up and changed out the strings, it sounds phenomenal. So don't let the price fool you, drop the 200, get a set-up, and you will not be disappointed. I also think that Sweetwater can do a set-up as well. Silent Lucidity sounds awesome...
