Hi:

I have been watching a few YouTube videos featuring the George Harrison 360/12 C63, but it is still difficult to see (hear) how its X bracing sounds different from the McGuinn 12-string model.

Some of the Forum members here say that there is more "resonance" with the C63. Would anyone wish to add his/her two cents?

I would also love to know from the experts here how the two 12-strings differ!

Thanks,


Karl

You can't really tell from a video, you have to actually play a C63 to get the resonance thing. It's a very acoustically resonant guitar, apparently due to the internal bracing. It seems to give a slightly more spacious sound, not really more output from the toasters but inherent jangle. I've not owned or played a 370/12 RM but it has a built-in compressor for a tighter sound and more sustain. They're both wonderful guitars. The 660/12 is very good too, with a wider neck and a great sound.

Thanks, ricslinger!!!

Now, I have a better idea of how the C63 "resonates." I own the RM 370-12 and, as you say, it is tight and has lots of sustain-- especially with the compressor!

I would love to hear from anyone else who has played or owns a C 63. :D

You should also check out the Ric-1993Plus model. It has the wider neck and sounds great!
