but is solos harder to play on a 12 string?

That depends on what sort of solo you're trying to play. Of course you won't be shredding on one...

I think it feels very pleasant to fret a 12-stringer...

I thought it was hard to press 2 strings down at the same time, but after going to GC sometime ago. It was just like playing a 6 stringed guitar. Feels weird at first, but then you get the hang of it.

You can do solos on them, it's just a slightly different feel.

I have a Dano DC12 and I can solo on it fine, it's just a little more difficult to get it perfect. They do make amazing slide guitars however.

Yes. Yes it is.

Unless you're going to completely ignore bending as a whole and not do anything too fast anyways.

Uhh no. Do you own one? I don't have strong fingers and can get a decent semitone at the top of the neck, and around the middle of the neck a 2 step bend is easily possible. Then again bending on the E/A/D is noticeably tougher than on the lighter strings.

I don't see what the big fuss is tbh. They end up playing just like a normal acoustic, but slightly different. Theres no big thing it can't 'do'. If you've got the skill in your fingertips you don't need ask your question.

This.

You play it exactly like you play a six string.
