BALDWIN produced the 712R MODEL between 1967 and 1970. It's the 12 string version of the 706. At first glance the Italian made 712's pickups look like humbuckers, but despite their double pole-pieces they are single coils with a jangley 60s retro sound.

The tailpice has a "B" for Baldwin, and the pickguard also bears the Baldwin logo
