Well it all started in 1964, Chris Curtis and I felt we needed something different for the next single release "When You Walk In The Room". Then I saw George Harrison on TV with his "Rick", I just had to have one - that sound!! The rest of course is history. The 12 string is without doubt my (second) love!! From "Walk In The Room" onwards, my Rose Morris Model 1993 12 string was used on all recordings and all performances, until it was stolen!! I still have the 456/12.
