With this one a customer was really eager to push it to the limit. We built the very best 12-string guitar not only from noble Brazilian Rosewood, no, we also equipped it with all the modern features luthiery currently has to offer.
The basis for this custom order is our Ambition 12. This model features a neck-body transition at 12th fret to give the bridge a particularly favourable position in the centre of the top. In addition, the top has been adapted to the increased string tension by means of a sophisticated bracing system. With Gotoh 510 SGi super smooth-running mini tuners, we have saved weight in the head area so that the guitar fits snugly and balanced.
Of course, this 12-string guitar comes with all the basic features of the Ambition series such as Spanish neck, lightweight construction, arched top and comfortable neck shaping. The low string action combined with the 12-fret concept ensures minimal effort when fretting, making it extremely easy to play for a 12-string.
The bevel adds another element to the comfortable handling. Thanks to its rounded shape, the arm can rest comfortably without any edges cutting into the forearm.
Brazilian Rosewood not only provides an outstandingly beautiful appearance, but also a little more volume in the low-mid range than East Indian Rosewood.
Twelve steel strings combined with this masterful sound box generate a fantastically beautiful bass and, with the help of the triple sound hole, conjure up an almost infinite abundance of tonal colours. The sound is incredibly powerful and present without irritating the listener's ear with frequency overlaps.
