Very cool!!
12 string bass always make me think of Dug Pinnick / King's X

or PJam's Jeremy.
Current Carvins:
2010 Bolt (Candy Red Metallic)
2013 Bolt Plus (Koa)
2016 Black n Blue VSEVEN

Wish List
Some sort of multiscale 6 HSS with RAD ASH
JB Numbers Guitar (July sale has given me the itch!)

In terms of sound, we could actually make use of that. A little bit. Maybe. Sometimes. But in terms of technique, I would struggle, I think - playing only fingerstyle as I do. The overall sound reminds me of a chorus/octave a bit. For some bands and players I get it.
