12 String Lead Guitar

Colin111, 09.03.2016
This must be the only 12 string electric guitar that can be effectively used as a "lead guitar" as well as a "rhythm guitar". If you choose a melody or riff that can be played entirely on the top two string pairs or one that can be played entirely on the bottom 4 string pairs, it gives a truly fantastic sound. I have played a verse on the bottom 4 string pairs and chorus on top 2 string pairs. The options are many.

The pickup selections and tone controls are much the same as the usual three pickup Burns 6 string solid electric guitars, but with that great "12 string ring".

For the Rhythm Guitarist, it is surprisingly easy to finger chords on this guitar and it gives a great pallet of sounds.

The sustain is good and the guitar stays in tune. I turned up at an event with no time to tune up - but like other Burns guitars, it was still exactly in tune without retuning and sounded great throughout the event.

The tremelo gives a great shimmer to the sound, but you won't dive bomb on a tremelo holding around 1/10 ton of string force at the knife edge pivot.

The double six is slightly heavier than an equivalent 6 solid electric string guitar and has a great finish.

Burns Apache Double Six ... from reality!

Bernard440, 27.11.2017
After many researches I finally found the object of my dreams in this case, this splendid Burns Apache double six. The quality, fortunately, is up to the amount invested! The beast offers a game of comfort quite exceptional for a twelve-string. As soon as I took control, I played a good two hours without at any time I felt the need to rest or relax my hands. The handle is quite incredible and the bars are no problem on the entire length of the handle. The trisonic pickups are doing their job well and the sound color delivered is according to the legend. The violin is flawless and an irreproachable finish. Delivered in a suitcase of very good quality with premium leather guitar strap very well thought. In short that happiness and a choice that I strongly recommend to the followers of the twelve strings that would be tempted by the passage of the acoustic guitar to the electric guitar, the two being very complementary.
I could have put four stars because no key for the bag and traces of oxidation on the ropes (Thomann is not for nothing) ... I wait for the answer to my request.
