Alvarez 2551-12 Rosewood.

I own it, and play it professionally. It was a 1997 Model, and plays beautifully. I have recorded with it, and use Medium gauge D'Addario strings. There isn't another 12 string anywhere like this one.

1997 Alvarez 2551

I own one and it has a beautiful tone with amazing sustain. I upgraded the guitar with bone nut, saddle and bridge pins and it makes a positive difference to the tone. It's also easy to play, unlike so many 12 string guitars. Built to last. If you see one for sale buy it, you won't find a better 12 string guitar, unless your willing to spend thousands of dollars.
