J12SO Sing Out 60th Pete Seeger

The Basics

The Martin J12SO! Sing Out 60th Pete Seeger Custom Artist 12-String Edition is inspired by the iconic folk singer’s personal 12-string, an instrument almost as famous as his long-neck banjo. Martin’s Grand Jumbo body style is paired with an extra-long 27.5” scale length on the mahogany neck, a unique triangular soundhole, and 15 frets clear to the body, meant for the dropped baritone tuning that Seeger prefers.
