I have seen but one. They are from the same era I think as the early 70's models from the first generation of Electras but I think only PCM (pacific Coast Music a brother company to SLM) offered these. The one that I did come across suffered the same problems as the early hollow body models in that the neck stress was to much and they have severe problems with the neck joints etc and the 12 string model only seemed to double the problem as no structural changes were made from the 6 string neck joints. With all 12 strings tuned to standard the amount of pressure on the neck pocket and the bridge area is substantial and they were also very prone to warp if not very well cared for. I think they are cool looking but not well thought out in design as these were from the very early days of Japanese manufacture and also as the PCM side were usually cheaper and had less quality but not always. Still a good guitar if correctly tuned and cared for. :up:
