Cozart Tobacco Burst Electric 12-String

You have probably seen Cozart guitars pop up on your eBay searches, but you've probably been skeptical about the quality and the prices--because the price is so low on them. I took a chance on one about a year-and-a-half ago and got one of their electric 12-strings. With a little bit of easy tweaking (adjust the truss rod and intonation, pickup height, etc.) I had a great sounding and playing electric 12-string. This was great because, I don't play one all the time. Some songs, it can be just the thing to add sparkle to a track.

When I played in a band once, I happened to have an electric 12-string that I'd play for just about three songs a night: the Beatles' "Happy Birthday," Mary Chapin Carpenter's "Passionate Kisses," and the Eagles' "Hotel California." Whenever people heard the sound of that electric 12, they'd almost run for the dance floor. There are way more songs than you can imagine that have electric 12-string--stuff by Led Zep, Rush, the Beach Boys, Supertramp, Bon Jovi, etc. Put a clean 12-string on a track doubling a heavy distorted guitar part and it sounds HUGE!

However, for most players, you're not going to want to spend a grand on a guitar you play three or four times a night, or maybe just to record with occasionally. In that case, the Cozart is perfect--and cheap! Check this one out today. Click on the link below.
