I picked up a cheapo Rogue 12 string recently with the 20% discount from WWBW. @rocknrguitars gave me a few suggestions to help "bump it up". This is what he told me to do: How is the action on it. In my experience with the 12's was the strings were high but easily corrected. Put a capo on the first fret. Measure the gap between the bottom of the low E at the top of the 8th Fret while depressing the low E with your right hand where the neck leaves the body. In you left hand you can use a feeler gage. Should be between 8 and 12/1000. You can slowly tighten the truss rod to lower the strings to 10/1000. Give it a try and raise or lower until you like the action and are not getting a buzz. Easy... lol A minor tweak, and it's playing really nice now. Actually, it's my preferred instrument at the moment. There's something nice about the ringing tone and wide neck of a 12 string. I also thinks it improves my playing on a 6 string. Basically, I don't have much time to play ... but 30 minutes before bed, I grab the guitar and run some paces. The 12 string is really a lot of fun. If any of you guys don't have one ... think about snagging a 12 banger for the holidays. I really, really like it.
