In my almost never-ending search for new and 'different' guitars, I have suddenly delveloped an interest in a Les Paul 12-string. (I had the opportunity to pick up a goldtop version a few years back, but never pulled the trigger.) It appears as though there has not been a discussion on these for over a decade, so I thought that I would try to see if there were any updated experiences, observations, thoughts or comments.

Thanks!

im shopping luthiers right now as I want a double neck les paul..Gibson wouldn’t make it for me…
anyhow, I want an eds but a carved top lester…with custom split diamond multi ply headstocks on both…it’s gonna be bananas…and, yes, it will Have 6 pups and 2 bigsbies lol

i think I’ve found the guy who made me a beautiful les paul as a dry run…

but It’s a long project and I’m still in the infant stages…I’ve only just stained the test one and pore filled it…gotta start the nitro when it gets a bit less humid in texas

I love how 12 strings sound, but I would never play it enough to justify getting one haha.
There have been a few times I almost took home a cheap 12 string acoustic, but even stopped then.
