Title: I "strayed" NGD Eastman E6D 12
Post by: markj on July 30, 2017, 07:13:04 AM
Was on the hunt for a solid wood 12 string and was pretty set on just ordering a Larrivee LV-03 R 12.  I wanted a cutaway, but for the actual songs I will use it for, it really isn't required.

I found this beauty at Dave's Woodstock Music today. for a price I could not refuse.

It sounds amazing. So full and rich. I had previously tried a Taylor 150E and lower end Martin as well as a vintage Gibson from 1966 and a Vintage Guild. None of them even came close to the tone and comfort of playing of this Eastman. The fit and finish are very very good. It really sings!

The action is perfect and Dave told me, it came from the factory like that.

So, I have another brand of acoustic guitar now.   :whistling:

Congratulations. I hope you are delighted and extremely happy with your non-Larrivee guitar. :mad: :mad: :mad:... :crying:... kidding, of course.

A lot of us have a few other logos on the headstock of our other guitars.

Finding a 12 string you like is not all that easy in my experience.

                 Enjoy it.

I kick myself for selling a Takamine rosewood 12 string prior to my discovery of Larrivee guitars.   Now I can't even remember what I bought with the money
