Finally! The RT452 is MINE! Anybody else have one?

Ever since I had one come through the store I was working at years ago, I've wanted an RT452 12-string. I've always regretted not picking one up back in the day, but...I can say that about a LOT of things (i.e. $700 PMC or Rainforest JS anyone?)

But, after a LONG time of watching EBay for one to come prayers were answered! Picked one up last week for $405 from a pawn shop in Mississippi. Might have been a few bucks more than I would normally have paid, but...I REALLY wanted it! arrives, and it's just about perfect! The ONLY thing wrong with it is that the low "E" machine head is broken (aside from the nasty ammount of rust/tarnish on all the hardware), but I've already got a replacement on the way

The guitar is perfect! NO dings/dents/scratches or anything else, aside from some swirling on the pickguard. It was strung up with an acoustic 12-string set, so the neck is still acclimating to having the right strings on it. But, the action isn't bad at all! Great neck, great tone (although the stock pickups will be replaced this weekend).

Definitely a great, usable electric 12-string! It'll make it's live debut this Saturday at a big outdoor gig.

Has anybody else had any experience with the RT452?

I had one last year that I picked up from a pawnshop.A really comfortable 12str. to play.I was going to change the bridge pickup.After a few rounds of "the song remains the same"and me not playing it too much,I decided to sell it to someone who would use it more.A really cool instrument,congratulations Mike
