looks to me like Paul nailed it.
It's a 360 new style silhouette that's double bound.


If you simply replaced the typical rounded-over top edge with a double-bound square edge, that's what you would get. Interesting, though I also like the sharper horns - and the 330 shape better than the modern 360 shape.

Did you end up with this guitar John? Or is this another example of this odd WB 360 12 string? :D

BTW I recognize the strangely modified 620 12 from a Craiglist ad about three years back....

From April 1980 as I recall... :-)

if that is the same guitar then the lower scratch plate got some damage somewhere!

You know what it looks like, right?




A single-neck version of a 362/12.

Carry on.

Maybe Kenny had "single-neck 362/12" on his brain because of his adventures with the goofy 12-string neck that had to be re-set on the 362/12 that he just scored!

Does anybody know which Artist this was given to as part of the endorsement deal? Anyone recognize it?

It was listed as such in the first post of this thread. I am not saying it is true or not, but repeating this statement and asking if anyone knew of the artist.
