    Does anyone know anything about this discontinued model and how it differs from the 620/12?

    IIRC, the 610 does not have binding or stereo output. It also has dot inlays. The 620 adds both, plus triangle inlays.

    I just got a 620/12 two weeks ago...oh what a dream. I previously had two 660/12's...should have never sold them.

    I had a 620/12 and a 6. Sold em and missed them both. Bought another 12 to replace it a couple years ago. The 6 is great as well, but like the 12, you won't use it for everything. Nice guitars, when you're carrying more than one!
