Not mine, but an interesting 12 string Adamas II for $1400.

Glad it worked out for you and I hope you enjoy it!  I did email the seller earlier today hoping to post more info about it, but didn't hear back presumably because you bought it. 

Congrats!

Well, if I didn't have my heart set on another special O that I'll get in about a month, I would have probably snagged this. I just don't want a 12 string to be my primary guitar.

Enjoy it Samuels!!

Yeah.  We want a report on how it looks and plays when you get it.

Will do Mark, can't wait to have you over!

And I will definitely let you all know how it turns out, I will try and make a video and post a link on here once it's all settled in.

It appears to be in mint condition too, I'm just so incredibly happy right now to finally be getting and Adamas 12 string. The only unfortunate thing is that it doesn't have a case, so if anyone knows where I might be able to find one for this kind of Adamas it would be most appreciated!

Man... what a rocket-ship that must be. You should have the X-15 airbrushed on the top. Congrats.

The model number is DS585. The DS means "D Scale", i.e. Baritone, i.e. Long neck. As opposed to 1585 which would be the standard 12-string Adamas II version.

right and wrong, there were a few custom orders with those fret markers.

 

You only know from the length of the scale. From the photo I cannot tell its scale, but the name DS is quite an indication that it is a longneck.

Congrats to the grabber! I would like to see more.....

It's already been said but the "DS" on the model number is for long necks,plus the fret markers design is most commonly associated with the longneck,what a monster guitar I hope he posts some sound samples.
Congrats on an awesome 12 string.

As far as cases go check the scale length but my long neck had a custom case so you'll probably need to find an DS768 case or custom order a case,

Correct, I don't think this guitar will fit in a normal case. Perhaps not even a longneck case. I think Stephen had to get a bass case for his.

You're welcome!

BTW, my DS585 finder's fee is getting to play that guitar if I'm ever in the Boise area. Or if you're ever in the Fort Collins, Colorado area...LOL!

Well I have an unfortunate update. Just opened the the box up and come to find that the girl who initially sold me the guitar lied about the true condition of it. I just got off the phone with the manager and she is very nice and willing to help. The manager actually knew the true condition of the guitar and asked the girl several times that I knew of the damage, which again the girl did not mention. Come to find out the girl was actually let go a couple days after selling me the guitar...

So I would really hate to return it, but if the cost to have it repaired is ridiculous then I fear I may have to. I'll submit pictures here in a bit, but any advice on the matter would be greatly appreciated...

The back of the bowl has a very minor bulge no bigger than a fingerprint. The real issue is the top. It is almost completely separated from the right upper side, all the way up underneath the neck.
