NGD vintage Coronado XII CAR! (Unboxing pics Pg 2!)

Post by SignoftheDragon » Tue May 10, 2022 11:44 am

12-string quest level unlocked! I've never played one of these before, though I've often dreamed of owning one.

Hints:

1) Vintage.
2) Not Offset.
3) 12-string electric.

It'll arrive this week! I'm supersupersuper excited!

Care to guess?

The cool thing about fretless is you can hit a note...and then renegotiate.

Awesome! Report back on how the pickups sound. I have two of the 6 string versions - a 68 with what I guess you'd call a trem and a very clean non-trem '67. The pickups on the 68 actually sound amazing, very close to a Jazzmaster. The pickups on the 67 are as close to worthless as you can get.
