    Your budget will have a lot to do with the selection. There are many out there that are good.

    I really like my Fender CD-100. It seems sturdy and has great tuners.

    If you have the budget for it, the Guild F-512 is magnificent in every respect.

    Yamaha makes some nice ones for a reasonable sum like the APX700II, LL16-12 or FG720S are worth looking at.

    I used to own a Takamine 535 and it was very nice for the $550 it cost me. It had good electronics, a nice shape, and good tone woods.

    Be careful with 12 strings. They have a lot of tension on the neck, so cheap ones can often end up with the neck cracking. My best advice is to buy a model and brand that's been around for lot of years and has a proven record of being solid.

    Taylor. Take a look at the way they mount the necks.

    I have an old Alvarez 12 string that is very good for a cheaper model. I also keep it tuned down to E flat to reduce the tension. 12's are known to pull the bridge saddles up off the body over time.
