The seller is Zorro Sounds who is clearing out their inventory. You can buy directly from them for $130, on Amazon for $140 [amazon.com], or Jet.com with the coupon code to get it under $100. Regular price is $200.

These do not come with cases or accessories.


Oscar Schmidt is now a budget line for Washburn guitars. These are Chinese made laminate rather than large hunks of wood. Therefore, the soundstage will feature mids and treble rather than being bass heavy.


Quality depends on the year of production; some are very good, akin to Japanese made guitars, while other years have production lines that produce rough frets and other issues.



Do not waive your right to return just to save $2 in case you receive a bad production model. Otherwise, it is a very good value for a budget guitar.


FYI, 12-string guitars are played the same as 6-string. You get a "chorus" effect due to some strings coming in pairs with octave differences.


Introductory 12-string guitars start at about $230 with some Yamahas and Ibanez acoustic guitars, or $300 for solid-top to acoustic-electric versions. Oscar Schmidt 12-string guitars are usually $200, with Amazon carrying them for $150 to $180 from other sellers. Oscar Schmidt is usually carried by smaller mom-and-pop stores due to their low stock prices.

"You have entered an invalid promo code."

I also tried to use the Tripple15 code they tout on the site, but it won't apply it. It tries to get me to sign in, and although I have never had an account with or purchased from them, it says I already have an account. Tried to reset my password and it says I don't have an account.

So, Jet sux.

Good deal though if you can replicate it and thanks OP for all the additional insights.


Update: I just created a new account and wouldn't you know it? They are all sold out forever.

I'm so sorry, that was my fault: The coupon code was indeed "TRIPLE15", but it slipped my mind and I wrote "JET15" in the description.
