Much more than the usual ‘six string model with a few adjustments’ design so often employed by guitar manufacturers, the D-16N-12 is a perfect example of Farida’s individual approach to each new guitar.Every aspect of this model’s design and construction has been conceived to enhance the increased dynamics of the extra strings, making a huge difference to the resulting tone. The soundboard is a higher grade of solid Sitka spruce, giving an extra boost to the higher frequency range of the octave strings, and producing a truly massive strumming sound. The rosewood back and sides balance this brightness with a rich bass response, equally rewarding for the enthusiastic strummer or the light-fingered picker.The mahogany neck is expertly set to accommodate the extra tension of twelve strings whilst still keeping the action low, perfect for the player new to twelve strings.
