I bought this AE 185-12 less than a year ago. It's beautiful, plays well and sounds huge.. So do my 3 other 12 string guitars. I just haven't used this guitar. It needs a home where it can see some play. The guitar has been kept in a climate-controlled, smoke-free environment. It's in great condition. Not dings or noticeable scratches. It is used but not a ''player's guitar'' so it's in great shape. I'd give it an 8 or 9 of 10. I play a lot of other guitars (Collings, Martin, PRS, Telecaster, Gibson, Taylor etc); the fit and finish on this one is as nice as it gets.
The review below captures the guitar very well.
Product: Carvin AE185-12
Carvin's AE185-12 is a semi-acoustic electric 12-string. The instrument was made in year 2000 in Carvin's plant in San Diego, CA. It has mahogany side, back and neck. The top is spruce with a flamed, bookmatched, quilt maple overlay. The headstock is overlayed with quilt maple to match the body. Pickups include two Carvin C22 humbuckers and a piezoelectric imbedded under he saddle bridge. Controls for the ACTIVE electronics include a Les Paul-like 3-way switch for selecting one or more of the humbuckers. It has one volume control, a treble boost/cut, a bass boost/cut, and a ''pan'' control that allows infinite blending of the humbuckers and the piezo (or either the humbuckers or piezo alone). It has three small toggle switches that allow ''splitting'' of either humbucker (to a single coil config), and a phase switch that throws the humbuckers out of phase with each other. The finish is clear-lacquer over a deep red stain
