X7-12 Woody Sapele
Doug was looking for a compact 12-string to use for his gigs on cruise ships. He wanted it to be compact for travel, yet still have a full sound and strong visual impact to catch the attention of his audience. After discussion we settled on some highly-figured Sapele veneer for the face which has a beautiful deep golden quilt. For the body size we chose the X7 and modified the neck and headstock to create the 12-string. To amplify it we went with an LR Baggs Lyric which offers great versatility and a rich natural sound. We have made a few X7 12-strings now and we find the short scale makes it very playable, while the small body keeps it punchy.
