The surrounding sound of the 12 strings
As the name suggests, these guitars have 12 strings, in which the two lower pairs are usually tuned within an octave and the three treble pairs in unison. Although there are slight differences depending on who plays and your personal preference.
This type of setup gives you a full, enveloping sound, producing a natural chorus effect that makes it very attractive especially for strumming, backing up, or adding to the overall sound of a recording or live performance.
Guitars with History
12-string guitars began to become popular in the 1920s and 1930s, being a fundamental part of the folk movement. But they soon became part of the history of rock and pop, thanks to the fact that many of the great songs of these genres have been composed with this type of guitar. Some examples are Hotel California (The Eagles), Stairway To Heaven (Led Zeppelin) or Wish You Were Here (Pink Floyd).
