Select Spruce For A Select Instrument
The DR-212 features a Select Spruce top. Spruce is a rich and complex tonewood that begins to breath and improve with age the more its played. So play the DR-212 everywhere! The body is made from solid mahogany and the bridge is made from solid rosewood, properly sized and braced for the extra tension of 12 strings tuned to standard tuning. There is a lot of stress put on a 12-string guitar between the nut and bridge and rosewood has proven to be both a long lasting and a perfect compliment to a Select Spruce top. The classic black vintage style pickguard is easy to spot on stage or across the room and has the iconic "Epiphone" E.
