Hi

Hi All.
New member here. Getting a Wasburn D10 12 string from my better half as a Christmas present (I'm spoiled at last!!) so thought I'd trawl the web to get details. I've been looking for a reasonably priced 12 string for quite some time now, and we bought this yesterday at what we consider a reasonable price of $135 ($219). Looking through the forum I noted that the 12 string on the site is shown as a cutaway model fitted with an on-board tuner. Is the one I have an old model perhaps?
I've been allowed a sneak preview today and had an hour or so playing, and it is fantastic!!. Its been returned to it's box ready for Santa now (boo hoo) Going to be like a little kid on Christmas day!!
Any suggestions on alternative strings, strap fixings (only has the strap button on the lower bout, none on the neck), etc, etc.
Thanks for taking the time to read this, and Merry Christmas to you all.
