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.
