This time I found a 12 string, the J-12-16GT.

What that all means in Martin-speak is a Jumbo body, 12 string, 16 series with a Gloss Top. Not sure what year it was made, but it's a(nother) discontinued model.

Got it for a very reasonable price (assuming everything is okay when it arrives, pics look good, and it's a one-owner). If all is well my Takamine 12-string will be sold, and I'll recoup most of what I spent on this.

Another Martin Jumbo in the house - that makes 3. This one I wasn't looking for, it just popped up on Reverb. I'd still really like to have a Jumbo with Maple back and sides...but that will have to wait awhile.

I have never played a 12 string. Is it hard for the fretting hand to get used to? I would guess that there would be a more lush and full sound.
