Wow! Beautiful Instrument ... Beautiful Sound!
What is your opinion of this product?
I have wanted a 12 string for quite some time. I was browsing and this caught my eye. Very affordable price point and a very nice looking instrument. So, I took the plunge and ordered it. I was actually surprised at the quality. It seems very well made and has a great feel. It comes tuned way down so as not to stress the neck out too much during shipping. After four rounds of tuning, it was ready to go. I took it to rehearsal and everyone was impressed with the guitar's looks. Then, I plugged in and we started on the song I bought it for: You've Got To Hide Your Love Away. You could hear the sound of everyone's collective jaws hitting the floor. It was gorgeous and full and made the song (which I had been using a 6 string on with a 12 string emulator pedal). The guitar is awesome, the sound is awesome, and the carrying bag is great too. It is surprisingly light, but seems very sturdy and has a brace for the neck. Can't beat the value for the price!

Love it
What is your opinion of this product?
At this time I own three twelve string guitars and a bunch of other six strings. I've been playing for about 50 years. My other twelves are decent guitars but this thing blows them away. The concave back has no bracing and the guitar is surprisingly light. It is at least twice as loud as my solid top Alvarez jumbo 12. I not only would recomend this to others i am seriously considering ordering another so i can have one in an different tuning for shows. Best 12 string Ive owned.

A real sleeper(in a good way!)
What is your opinion of this product?
I'm a 62 year old journeyman guitarist and have been playing since I was 10 years old. I don't often write reviews. First the bad - the battery for the pickup on this guitar is in a canvas pouch attached by velcro to the inside of the guitar near the neck joint. The manual does clearly state that it is necessary to detune the guitar to change the battery. In shipping, on my guitar, the battery became detached from the velcro so I needed to detune the guitar to reattach the battery. Not a big deal, but worth mentioning. It is my only gripe with the guitar. Now for the good - and there is a lot of good. First - this is not a fancy guitar. Its' appearance is quite plain. I do find it attractive in a utilitarian sort of way. Out of the box/gig bag, the action was perfect. This 12 string plays great. It sounds great. I don't know if it's the maple arched back or the jumbo body, but this guitar has a great voice that really projects. It sounds great through the pickup too. A great buy!!!

Amazing 12 string
What is your opinion of this product?
I'm a 40+ year session player and recently needed a good acoustic 12 string for an upcoming project. This 2512E far surpassed my expectations for such an affordably-priced instrument. My main goal is how does it sound recorded, and this guitar is exceptional. And it looks and plays as great as it sounds. And this may be a minor perk, but the padded gig bag it ships with is great. Don't let the overseas build scare you away; this guitar is superb! GV

Huge, beautiful sound for GREAT price
What is your opinion of this product?
I don't know why I wouldn't give this 5 stars. It's got a pickup, so straight off the bat, there is value there. Sounds just fine plugged in, but it sounds incredible acoustically. The body design of the Westerly series elicits quite a booming tone. I was very impressed with the loudness of this cannon! The tuners seemed to be a good quality for the cheaper model and although made overseas, the overall feel was great. The action was incredible for a 12 sting and it has the dual truss rod to help with the crazy tension a 12 string goes though in its lifetime. The maple back and sides are not ornate in the least and are kind of an ugly color, but I'm in this for the sound and value. The top looks nice and the abalone rosette and Guild log really stand out. I loved the style of tortoise pick guard, it looks really classy and I can't wait to start cranking out some Petty, Peter Gabriel, and Eagles on this puppy. Well-worth it for the price!
