Ric 12 - what strings ?

Post by StrummersOfThunder »

So it's occured to me after breaking the high e tuning my Ric 360/12 that it's possible I've not restringed it since I got Glynn to do a set up shortly after I bought it.
Now that would have been...2014?

I found that the local RS and music works did not stock electric 12 string sets..

Can anyone reccomnend a good set ? Guess I'd try local but don't mind ordering something in from yonder .

For playing the usual 12 stuff (petty, Beatles etc )

Thanks

I'm sure RS Dave would price match it, but supporting the little guy is important too :)

Just surprised at the degree of the price disparity?

It's probably not a big seller for the RS so therefore priced high, and not a big seller for Cheeseboy so low price :rofl:

I use a bog standard set of Ernie balls. I prefer flats on 12; but mine has not been set up for those.
