  • Johnson 12 String Guitar

    Has anyone any information about the Johnson 12 String Guitar.
    I believe they call it the Songwriter Series. Its the only one that Johnson makes. I know its an inexpensive 12 String, but I'm looking for experience just the same.

    I would say that the try-before-buy advice you always hear REALLY applies to 12s. I was 12-shopping a few years back and I was amazed at the differences--neck width, thickness, playability, tone--a more profound range of differences than I have found with sixes. I rarely "hate" a six that I pull down and play, but there were some 12s I did not like at all. And then there was one I adored, and bought--a used Tak F395.

    I've not seen or played the Johnson. But if you're going low-end for price, consider the used market too. I found a very playable Fender 12 at the local pawnshop recently--I think they were asking $150 and probably would have taken less.
