Product Description

Remarkable tonewoods and electronics make the distinct Guild F-512E one of the finest 12-strings available today! Famously played by Tom Petty, David Gilmour and Stevie Ray Vaughan, we defined the 12-string sound in the 1960s and these iconic guitars continue to be the most sought after 12-string models today. The F-512, made in Southern California, continues this legacy through a jumbo shape, solid AAA Sitka spruce top and solid Indian rosewood back and sides. Braced with delicate, scalloped Adirondack spruce, this model produces shimmering highs, singing mids and a warm, focused bass response that truly sets it apart.

Decorated with Guild’s classic MOP V-block inlays, railroad track fingerboard purfling, and fully bound traditional headstock, players will feel like they are holding a piece of history while starting their own. The F-512 is finished with Nitrocellulose and is available in Natural or Antique Burst with the option of an LR Baggs pickup. Comes in a premium hard-shell humidified case.

The Perfect 12 String
Product Rating

Product Review

I just received my Guild F-512E in Antique Burst from AMS and I have to say it is nothing short of spectacular. I have owned a Guild F-50R for six years and it has made me a die hard Guild fan. The F-512E carries on the absolutely top of the line craftsmanship I have become so accustom to with my F-50R. Every appointment if perfect, the playability is second to none, and the sound is beyond words. I have not even had a chance to plug the guitar in and run it through a PA yet, but if the acoustic sound of this instrument is carried through even just a little via the LR Baggs Anthem system this is simply the perfect 12 string, end of story.
