Ive always wanted one of these, but i have a slight delema. The strings are eventually gonna need replaceing, which is fine and all, but i noticed, its not just 2 sets of regular acoustic strings. Do you have to buy a special 12 string set, and is it alot harder to tune? Tanks in advance!
you can buy 12 string sets. it shouldn't be harder to tune, although in theory the added tension could introduce dimensional fine tuning problems for the lighter strings.
they sell 12 string sets of acoustic strings. they aren't proportionately more expensive (i.e. twice as expensive), but they are slightly more expensive. they aren't any harder to tune. it does take longer to tune because you have twice as many strings, but certainly no harder to tune.
