Price paid: $ 500

Purchased from: Fret Mill Music Co.

Features: I just recently got this 2004 12-string Dean Exotica, beautiful laminated wood. 22 frets, cutaway with a sort of tiger maple/koa look to it. It is an acoustic/electric and has easy controls on it. // 8

Sound: Awsome sound, gives an extra kick to the acoustic sound by give it double the amount of strings. It sounds good amplified, but not with distortion. With distortion any second you aren't playing, you hear feedback. // 10

Action, Fit & Finish: As with most 12-strings, the strings are harder to push down. No flaws in the whole guitar. // 10

Reliability & Durability: This guitar is a twelve string made for road playing, everything is solid, and built very well. // 10

Overall Impression: I play Floyd and Zeppelin among others like Rush and it sounds terrific. I love everything about it, playing, durability and how it holds tune fine. I would reccomend it to anybody. // 10
