12 String

If you could have a 12 string acoustic, or a 6 string electric-acoustic what would you pick?

Trying to decide between an Ovation acoustic electric, or a Walden 12 string.
I have been playing for nearly 4 years now, and I prefer classical or finger picking.

Is it to be your only guitar? In that case, go for the 6-string. Twelves are great, but not particularly versatile, and may not adapt well to all the songs you want to play. Incidentally, I've never heard of Walden, and for a twelve to sound acceptable, it needs to be a good one. Cheap twelves are horrible out of all proportion to their cheapness, compared to a cheap six-string. If you want a 12-string, you might as well save your money for a Guild.

Ovations also sound pretty awful unamplified, but they're OK if you plug them in. They incessantly slide off your lap, though. Many guitarists hate them with a passion, others love them.

Good luck with whatever you decide.
