The best 12-string guitars 2021: our pick of 12-string acoustic and electric guitars

by GuitarDomain

The best 12-string guitars are arguably unbeatable when it comes to adding an extra dimension to your playing. Yes they are niche instruments, but whether you prefer acoustic guitars or electric guitars, a 12-string guitar’s doubling quality lends your chords a choral sound that you just can’t quite replicate with pedals or overdubs. 

With the bottom four strings doubled an octave higher, and the top two doubled, the 12-string guitar has a wider frequency range, adding textures and overtones and a top-end that glistens in a mix. It can also add an ethereal quality to your solo performance.
