Product Description

 

There is a story of John Lennon being given one, when really it was intended for George Harrison of the Beatles.

Own a piece of American Musical Instrument Heritage & Sound

Considered to be one of "The Secret Weapons" of The 60's sound. The Electric 12 String.

 

This unique instrument sounds & plays even better than it shows. Both onstage and in the studio. Is a real "wow factor" audience magnet. 

 

The sound from this instrument cannot be sampled, processed or simulated to sound authentic unless you play the real thing. Believe me. I've tried. Why ? because it's analog. Something is lost in the attempted translation to digital. When it comes to wanting a 12 string sound, the pro's really play a 12 string. We know, good listeners can tell the difference !   

 

What sets The Starfire apart from my Ric 360/12 & Gibson ES-335/12 ?


It is warmer, fuller & jazzier than the Ric. But brighter than the Gibson. A great hybrid. The guitar was factory wired in "stereo" as an option in "67"  This means that each pickup can come from 2 different amps or both at the same time controlled by the toggle switch on the guitar. I attach a Roger McGuinn "Jangle Box" th the bridge pickup line and chorus in the neck line. I can't describe that sound ! Or, you can play it clean in mono through one or two seperate amps for Wes Montgomery stuff.
