OK, I want to buy a 12 string electric and I have been told that the 12 string Ric is the way to go. I took a look at them and am now really confused about models. What is the difference the 300 series and the the 600 series, tonally? What is the difference between "toaster top" and "hi gain" pickups? I have never played a 12 string but have recently heard some 12 string stuff that was interesting and now, I want one. I respect the community here for all of the knowledge available and I hope I am asking the right questions. Thanks in advance for you help and suggestion.
