Welcome to the 12-String Bass Encyclopedia!


Our journey to document everything there is to know about the ultimate bass guitar, the 12-string, continues to take us in new and exciting directions. In our first 8 months of 2019 this new website has grown from 25 pages to over 330, plus for the first time ever we now have our own online store! The store includes 200 different items to start including some 12-string bass guitars, plus we still have tons of stuff to add so check back often to see what is new.
