Any other guitars?

I’ve got a Gibson 12-string. It’s like the 335 but it’s really narrow at the nut so I don’t like it much. Unfortunately, there isn’t much choice with 12-strings because I’ve looked around and I couldn’t find one electric 12-String. Nobody seems to stock them. It’s OK apart from the narrow neck. It’s narrower than my Strat and it’s got twice the number of strings! I don’t suppose I’ll be playing it that much. I have an Ovation acoustic guitar. The only reason I bought that was because it’s amplified with that bridge thing. It’s much better than the Barcus Berry. You can get more volume without feedback. I’ve also got an Ibanez L5 copy and that’s beautiful. It’s the best acoustic I’ve ever heard. I used it on the album. I’ve finally found a guitar that I can play my own way. It’s not very loud but it’s really nice for recording.
