FD 14 M 12-String Dreadnought, with Cutaway & EQ

The all mahogany budget 12 string by Framus. 

Strumming on a 12 string guitar is fun but may be challenging as there are simply more strings to press. The standard size 1.87″ / 48mm nut width of the Framus FD 14 M NS CE 12 makes things a little easier as you do not need to cope with a too wide nut and the relatively slim neck shape helps too. The FD 14 M NS CE 12 is deep and kind of dry sounding thanks to its all Mahogany body. The Natural Transparent Satin is elegant and well made and the on board Fishman Isys + preamp and Sonicore piezo combination is a great addition which makes the Framus FD 14 M 12-String Dreadnought, with Cutaway & EQ a great 12 string choice for your collection.
