Guild F512 Description:
The quality and ubiquity of their jumbo 12-strings have garnered Guild a permanent place in guitar history. As historians Tom and Mary Anne Evans once wrote, "the basic virtue of Guild 12-strings is that they are very loud and [have] a clarity and definition of sound not normally associated with 12-string guitars."
One of the keys to achieving that clarity and definition is the solid construction that Guild's craftsmen employ. While the body size and scale length are the same as the 6-string jumbos, the 12-strings are 1-13/16 in. wide at the nut, feature a double truss rod system and Guild's time-proven jumbo bracing pattern. All Guild guitars are accompanied by a deluxe archtop case.
Designed in the late 1960's as Guild's first jumbo 12-strings, the F412 and F512 are some of our most enduring and popular guitars. While both share many of the same features, the F412 has an arched curly Maple back and solid curly Maple sides, while the F512 has solid Rosewood back and sides. Painstakingly true to their vintage roots, these new versions of the F412 and F512 are the essence of what a 12-string guitar should be. These powerful beauties feature the same body dimensions as the originals: they're 17 in. wide, 21 in. long and 4.8 in. deep, with solid AAA Sitka Spruce tops. The high quality Ebony fingerboards are detailed with Abalone and Mother-of-Pearl block position inlays. Both sport Guild's famous G-shield headstock inlay and gold Grover Rotomatic® tuning machines.
