I am looking for opinions from people who have owned or currently own a 12 string. Is the new Chandler Tom Patterson model that good? Is the Hamer "acoustic look" better sounding than the standard Hamer 12? I want to get my Kings X and Cheap Trick jones satisfied, so want to buy a 12 sometime soon. However, not that many stores carry 12's in their normal inventory, so trying them out is a challenge. Thanks in advance for the replys.
