Guessing game time again....

Hints:

12 strings (of course)

Non-offset, single cutaway body shape.

Semi-hollow, I think?

USA made

Never had one of this brand before.

hmmm...

Is it what I asked you about?
If I was a byrd, I'd be mighty sore every time they shut the door and I don't think I'd sing...

Nope- I haven't discussed this with a soul. (Except the seller)

I don't think Rivolta does a semi- or hollow-body 12 (yet) so- nope! (Plus, I believe those are made in Korea with the other Eastwood lines)

Definitely an established American guitar brand with quite a bit of history, although not discussed very often here on OSG.

Here's a photo-clue. I'm not sure why I took this pic, but it's on my camera so happy coincidence:

It looks like a Ric cateye, but the single-cut hollow Rics I can think of off the top of my head are rare and very spendy.

Charvel Surfcaster or Reverend Airwave me thinks... But that's no SC.

I was surfing Reverb yesterday looking for 12-strings it could be and found this Rivolta which is why I suggested it.

I've been looking at the Rivoltas- would definitely love to try one out, but haven't had the chance to bring one in yet.

Guild- Nope!
Rick- Nope!
Surfcaster- Nope! (made in Japan)
Reverend- Nope! (Made in Korea)

Another clue that might spark something- The top on this guitar is made of cedar- for a particular purpose. Some recent Fender guitars have shared/borrowed some of their innovations from this line of guitars...
