Carvin Cobalt 980 12 String Reviews
After much research and time, I traveled around the corner from my day gig to Carvin's showroom in Poway. I have been searching for a good 12 string for over 2 years. I had previously purchased a Taylor 12 but quickly returned it as it had no bottom end or fullness to it. Too bad! I finally found a great sounding, playing and very affordable guitar in the Cobalt 980-12. I walked out the door with my new guitar (w/hard shell) for $978.73. You seriously cannot touch such a quality guitar out there for anything less than $1,500.
With the amount of importance that I put on having a fine instrument that is not only affordable (yet finding an inspiring instrument to play is priceless) but also inspiring to play, I have found it all in the Carvin Cobalt series 980-12 string. There is no guitar that I have seen or played from the Taylor,, Guild, Larivee to the Yamaha & of course Takemine, there is no guitar that can come close to matching the overall value of the Carvins!Robert J.
