Hi, everyone:

Once again, I would like to get some expert opinions. Does anyone own a 360/12C363 12-string guitar. If so, how does it sound when compared to the 360-12? I play 1960s Byrds and Beatles-- ringing 12-string chime, especially with my 370-12RM built-in compressor.

Thanks!!!!

Karl :D

Look up the old footage of the Beatles concerts in 1966. George used the original in the studio, but had a stock round-front 360-12 on the 1966 tour. You can then judge for yourself.

Personally, IMHO either will give you the desired jangle. I don't own the "63" model, but mine is a 1981 360-12 WB fireglo ckbd, which is very, very similar, and I have played the standard round-front 360-12's.

The one thing I've noticed on the C63 is it has a bit more resonance due to the internal X-bracing.

I think the strings used and the pickups have a lot to do with the jangle sound!

Check out the 1993Plus also, it will give you the sound you are looking for, and it has a wider, more playable(IMHO) neck!
