Reminds me of my Samick ST92
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
First off, let's get the dimensions out of the way; for some reason, finding these basic dimensions on a lot of guitars and cases is close to impossible; just try to find the dimensions of the DR-212 on the Epiphone web site. Length: 43", Bout length: 19-7/8", Lower bout thickness: 4-3/4", Lower bout width: 15-1/2" So now you can look for a gig bag with the full knowlage of what size guitar you are trying to squeeze into it. The only thing that is out of the norm with these dimensions, is the 43" length (Most bags are 39"-41"). You can always opt for the Epiphone hard case: EDREAD, or World Tour RWG20D, or GBA100 (thinner of the two). Now that the hard part is out of the way (finding a case), on to the review. As my title says, the guitar reminds me of my Samick ST92 which is a VERY well made 3/4 Spruce top acoustic which is also made in Indonesia. I have played guitar for over 40 years, so I have a collection of over 100 guitars, and 11 of them a acoustics, but this is the first 12 string, and I bought it just to have it around for songs like Hotel California, Etc., and was not willing to drop a lot of money on a guitar I would rarely use. I am very impressed with the build quality of this guitar for the under $170.00 asking price. It tuned up with no problems, even though the tuning process is arduous compared to a six string, and you constantly think you will pull the bridge out due to all that string pressure. The bridge plate on these 12 strings must be huge! I found that when tuning, you should up stroke the small strings so that you don't hit the large one right next to it. I have no fret buzz, finger rash, or problem areas with the fretboard on my guitar, and the strings sit low which I like. The nut is a bit sharp on the edges, but a file or sanding will take care of that. The strings are not that bad, and will do until new ones come in for the first change out. I have seen a wide range of reviews on this guitar, from terrible to fantastic, but the one I have is the later.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
This is a very high quality (made in Indonesia) guitar.
Feel
Was it easy to reach the strings? How comfortable was the playing position?
Playing a 12 string takes some getting used to, even though when you do play it, it has a much bigger sound and even small riffs sound exceptional.
Tone
Is the tone well balanced? How does it project?
Great tone from the guitar. A lot of it comes from the bout being wider at the bottom.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
As far as I am concerned, Indonesia has the best finishes on any guitars available today.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
A great value. Much more than expected.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
12 strings take some getting used to, but the strings sit low, and I am not having any problems playing it.
