    Oh I thought he meant just use a regular 9-42 set
    I was thinking that would hork the intonation

    Your response makes more sense
    Thanks

    Am I the only person who dislikes the plinky sound of piezos?

    Have you considered putting graphtech ghost saddles into one of your electrics? They have piezos built into floyd rose saddles, strat saddles, etc. Sounds Like an electroacoustic with undersaddle piezo.

    High E and B strings tuned to pitch, low E, A, D, G strings tuned up one octave.

    Digitech Mosaic.

    But nothing beats a real 12 string.
    Tuning and changing strings 12 string is beyond painful, though. I like using a guitar in Nashville tuning and layering it with a standard guitar. Doesn't sound like a 12 sting, but doesn't NOT sound like one. The intonation differences beteen the guitars causes subtle phase shifting that sounds really cool.

    Acoustic simulators don't do what the name says it will. You're better off just using the clean channel on your amp (set really clean) with maybe a bit of chorus/delay if you want to simulate a 12-string. Some amps will do these crystal cleans better than others - most of the classic Fender amps or Vox AC's. Perfect excuse to buy yet another amp.

    Hey, I actually had a good sound out of mine ...

    Guitar --> AC-3 --> Behringer ADI21 --> mixer

    I used the ADI21 to do a little tweaking on the signal and it sounded quite convincing.

    Yamaha apx 500 ii
    Neck is thin and electric like
    Action is low


    The lower the action on an acoustic
    The less tone
    There may be some trade off

    I heard Daughtry using a Semi Hollow and one that sounded pretty good. Probably a Roland Midi based modeler….

    Acoustic simulators suck, straight up. To get them to sound half decent you can't use them with a regular guitar amp (my best results were with a keyboard amp) and you need an electric that already sounds very acoustic. Plus you still can't dig in and hit the strings the way you would on a real acoustic. I'd rather play a beat to **** pawn shop special than spend much time with an acoustic simulator. . . Which is why I traded the Boss AC-2 for an acoustic.
