Yamaha FG-412-12 12-string guitar

I bought this Yamaha in the summer of 2000 to fulfill my wish of about 20 years to own a 12-string guitar. I always was taken by the rich sound of a 12-string, having this built-in "chorus-like" sound.

I don't play or plan to play it in a band, as it mostly used in country music which is not my style. I use it at home for playing ballads with finger-style.
