    I went through this process a while back, @Cadgirl .

    I found 2 things that decided my choice. The first is that 12 string guitars are almost exclusively dreadnoughts or jumbos. I already did that experiment and decided I would never again own a dreadnought or jumbo. The only 12 string I found that is smaller is the Breedlove Solo Concert 12 string. I believe the Concert is equivalent to an Auditorium body size.

    The second factor is the playability. Breedlove uses a bridge truss rod, which they invented, that makes this 12 easier to play than most. And the headstock design, which a few others have something similar, also helps with playability. Here is the Breedlove webpage where you can get all the scoops on this guitar;

    These have become difficult to find as they are made overseas, but here is a link to a store that still has one at the same price I paid;

    I only provided this information for you to consider. It won’t bother me regardless what decision you make. I would be interested in what you choose when you reach that point.
