Fender DG10 12 string Guitar

This was an invitation from a real auction with a real auctioneer; granted I only logged in online for bidding but I had been to the dentist and had three teeth out earlier in the day! I was keen to attend the auction as one of the lots was a "white label" Kamaka and there were some other nice electric Guitars like a couple of Les Pauls and a 50th Anniversary Telecaster too. There were also some interesting less famous Guitars that I might be tempted to bid on too if any of them stayed at a bargain price...
Well the Kamaka and the big name Guitars didn't stay at a bargain price so I lucked out with them but a couple of the interesting Guitars did get invited and I say all of the "Big Name" Guitars didn't go for a bargain price but that's not strictly true. All of the big name electric Guitars weren't bargains but there was this one and it's certainly big, it's a 12 string dreadnought; and it's a Fender too. It may not be the best of the Fender acoustic range but it's above a Squire and I have been wanting a 12 string recently; I don't know why? Possibly the big crowded headstock, that always appeals and with all these Guitars it will certainly look like I can play the Guitar.

I may not have attended the auction in person but I did have to go up to the auction house the next day and pick it up; and it's very BIG!!! (and it's very dirty too). The trip up to collect it wasn't bad and the place was a veritable "aladdin's cave" with the place in full swing for a photographic equipment auction there were lots of interesting things so I didn't hang around otherwise I may have ended up spending more money. It's in slightly worse condition that I was expecting too, they said there was a couple of small holes near the neck and these were what I expected; a couple of not very successful attempts to put a button on for a Guitar strap. These are very elegantly done but they are not so bad as to be a problem, and there is a couple of attempts on the neck heel as well that they didn't mention, along with one of the tuner buttons missing. None of it is a problem, it just makes the Guitar slightly less of a bargain that I thought it was and these along with some "buckle rash" make the Guitar look very experienced. What I do need to do now is clean it, fit a new tuner button, possibly re string it and practice with the 6 string Guitars until I get a bit better because playing a steel strung 12 string is hard on my soft fingers but it does sound good when I strum it
