This is the same general body as the 000-14 fret but with more area above the sound hole and the bridge is moved down a bit to accommodate the neck joining the body at the 12th
fret. 12 fret guitars are nice for blues and ragtime and usually are played fingerstyle. Great for slide work. You can specify a wider nut if you like the old ones that have a 1-7/8” nut.
