Yeah I could do research on my comp here, but this place needs more posts. Fire away.
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.
breedloves r pretty good. and their usually around like $500
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.
If its your first I recommend an epiphone dr 212 it's got good action and the necks not to wide I got one for £100
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.
