DESCRIPTION:

Can an acoustic 12-string guitar be sized other than jumbo or dreadnaught and still deliver the goods? Versoul's Buxom Minor 12 shouts an affirmative 'Yes!' It's not like there's no precedent; Lead Belly's guitar wasn't as big as it sounded. But like Versoul's Buxom Minor 12, the king of the 12-string's 12-string had extra scale length (26" here) helping to broadcast its bark.

Not only is the fullness of the Buxom Minor 12's sound stunning, its bright tonal clarity focuses each note sharply. User-friendly size and playability make this an exceptionally attractive instrument for any 6-string player feeling intimidated by the tendency of 12s to be giants. And the burnished look of this beauty is a further bonus.
