Picking this thread up after a few months - last year I went looking for an acoustic 12 for my son. I tried Guild, Faith and Taylor dreadnought 12s in an 'affordable' price range up to about £800, and a couple of Vintage 12s in other body shapes.

Viator tuning, string suggestions?

Hi all - I just found an apparently unplayed Vintage Viator in a pawn shop, which made it about twice the astonishing value it is in guitar shops - it looks like a toy but sounds and feels great (unless you must have bass...).
