1967 Epiphone Bard

As part of the emerging folk-rock boom, every major manufacturer of guitars in the sixties took a ride on the 12 string train, doing their best to appease those that wanted to jangle away the days.

This Gibson-made Epiphone is a rarely seen model from the era that was made in very limited quantities. On top of that, the immense pressure that 12 strings puts on an acoustic guitar has insured that even fewer have lasted through the years.
