Description

This is the prototype 12 String design from upcoming luthier Rod Schenk and debuted at the Newport/Miami Guitar Festival. Rod is close friends with Kevin Ryan and has been mentored a bit by Kevin so it's no surprise that the level of craftsmanship in this 12 string is superb and that it plays very easily. The combination of Mahogany and Engelmann Spruce give this a warmer voice than most 12 String guitars. It's also nice and lively. The body is bound in Rosewood and the headstock and backplate are Ebony, giving this Schenk guitar a clean and natural look. The string-through bridge is very unique for a 12 string as well.

Rod Schenk made this prototype 12 string and offered it at the Newport/Miami Guitar Festival where the current owner purchased it. While the gent loves the guitar, his wife was less than thrilled. So it is offered here as like-new, just months old and still in perfect condition. This is a very easy playing 12 string with a warmer voice due to the combination of Mahogany and Engelmann Spruce. Here's a chance to have a prototype guitar from an up & coming young maker.
 
This is a great 12-string. It's easy to play at standard pitch and it sounds great. It's also a beautiful instrument to look at. The workmanship is flawless.
