Hey!

I was looking at possibly buying a 12 string. But... I have a few questions.

a) is it harder to tune?

b) is it harder to play

I was looking for a 12 string around the $250 mark.

Any Suggestions are welcome

BTW, i am a noob. so please take it easy

Thanks guys =)

It will be harder to play because you have more strings to fret, but it will get easier in time just like playing a 6 string did. As for tuning, I doubt it will be harder, it'll just take twice as long.
Main Gear:

ESP Eclipse CTM I
Dean 'Shards' Razorback
Chapman Guitars ML-1
Ibanez AEL40SE Acoustic
Blackstar HT-5 Mini Stack
EHX Metal Muff
EHX Small Clone

I wish I had an extra sensitive third nipple, and a girl who was into that sort of thing.

Any twelve string under $400 is a waste of time. Save up a little more, or you'll risk having a garbage guitar or worse, one that pulls itself apart after a few years.

That depends on how much finger strength you've built up.
