Much as I'm tempted by a Rick 660/12 the price (plus the idiosyncrasies - tuner configuration, dual truss rod adjustment) make me look for solid body alternatives but they're few and far between, certainly in the UK.
And as we know even Rick 'style' semis rarely appear on popular auction sites...
So I'm just wondering if anyone can recommend any electric 12 strings I could look out for or to avoid, for that matter.

Cheers, Dave.

Have you looked into Danelectro? I'd properly go for one of these.

Thanks for the suggestion, Emiel - I know these are rated, but I'm hoping to get something with a solid body like the 660/12.
