Although named the same, The Painted Lady 12 string contains some pretty distinct differences to the 6 string. The first being the poplar body which comes with a single mini-humbucker pickup installed for a fuller, warmer sound.
Philip has always wanted to make a 12 string that was stylish, affordable, and had a great sound. For years, Philip’s favorite amplifier has been the Roland Jazz Chorus 120. The 12 strings on The Painted Lady provide a natural ‘chorus’ sound due to the fact that no two strings are ever perfectly in tune.The maple fretboard allows each note enough high end to stand out despite the humbucker pickup’s warmth.A beautiful, clear sonic pallet is provided by this instrument’s appointments ensuring you’ll want to pick it up over and over again.
