Show me your electric 12 string guitar

Postby Disarm D'arcy » Sat Oct 08, 2016 5:02 am

I've looked through the forums with the search even though I swear I've seen this thread in the past, it didn't came up. Or maybe I'm wrong.

Anyway, show me :cool:

The teardrop is a Kapa Minstrel (though I think mine is labelled as a "Challenger").

The bottom is a Sekova. Unsure about the model, but I've seen it referred to as a "Mentor".

So I saw this on a Facebook page for Jazzmasters, not sure if the guy's a member here, if you are, kudos, and please give me your blessing to do this myself. (Also sorry it's not *quite* a twelve string.

Here's the guys post, with a vid link:

I've just finished (well partly) a prototype of an idea I've had for about 15 years. The idea is to have a 12 string, where 6 strings are fixed in a tele style bridge, and the 6 others pass the bridge to a Jazzmaster tremolo. I was hoping for a manually controllable chorus sound.

For this iteration, I got a cheap but decent Harley Benton Jazzmaster copy, and installed the tremolo and a half ashtray bridge. I had to raise the bridge with a piece of aluminium to get the right angle for the strings. I could easily fit 3 extra tuners, so at the moment I settled for that.

The result is less exciting than I hoped for, but I'm starting to figure out what to play to make it sound the way I dreamed of. Maybe I will experiment with having the D, G, and B strings doubled instead. I will also install a pickup behind the bridge for more atonal sounds.

If anyone else has tried this, please share your experiences!

Sorry for the hum in the video, I haven't connected the ground wire to the bridge yet. Also for the guitar playing, haven't touched a guitar for a couple of years ;)

The Sekova is HOT & Japanese.

It's a great guitar. I can't remember if it's shorter scale than a normal 12-string or what. It balances really well and is very comfortable to play. It sounds really great too. Unfortunately, I haven't played it in a while. It's in need of some major repair and I've had it in storage for too long.

Haha I've been doing this to the SG I've been building for the past year and a half.
I thought I was so original, oh well. Good to hear it works though.
Although I'm doing it with a TOM and a teisco vibrato
