I started out trying to emulate a 12 string, which is one of the things I don't think the HD series does well. What I did get is a cool twist on it. Using the Whammy, I set it an octave up and panned it slightly left, with a Flanger after it to give a delayed bit of slight wobble. Is it a true 12? No, but it IS a very cool (IMO) shimmering tone that can sub for an electric 12 live. Try playing anything from the Stairway intro to Tom Petty-esque jangle to 80's Cure and even War-era U2. Think New Year's Day. This won't be your main tone, but I think this will stick in the rotation.
