Musicvox MI-5 12-String Electric Guitar

This is a rare, mint condition Musicvox MI-5 12 string with a 3-tone sunburst finish. While this unusual guitar boasts a lot of Sixties-style features, it’s a thoroughly modern instrument that is much easier to play than the classic models it is influenced by. Simply put: This is one of the easiest playing electric 12-strings you will ever play.

The MI-5 combines an asymmetrical double-cutaway body, finished in three tone sunburst, that looks something like a slimmer, more stretched out Mosrite. The hybrid solid/slotted headstock is similar to a Rickenbacker’s, but oversized, in typical Musicvox fashion. The guitar also sports a pair of vintage-style chrome-cover humbuckers with pole-piece cutouts, similar to Gretsch Filter’trons.

The Maple neck has a shallow, flat profile and is bolted to a lightweight Mahogany body, which features rear-mounted controls (master volume, master tone and a three-position pickup selector), a triangular pickguard, a Tune-o-matic bridge and a stop tailpiece. The body top and headstock are surrounded by three-layer (black/white/black) binding, while the Rosewood fretboard is bound with single-layer white binding and features block pearl inlays.

The guitar features a 24 3/4–inch scale, 22 medium-jumbo frets, a wide fretboard and a flat neck profile that makes it extremely easy to play. Even bending notes is not as much of a challenge, although it still takes more effort that playing a standard six-string. The vintage-style humbucking pickups provide an attractive balance of chime and sustain that retains outstanding clarity and definition when played through an overdriven amp.

This affordable guitar offers a great combination of 60s flair with solid modern worksmanship and playability.
