Painstakingly true to its vintage roots, this version of the F-512 has the same body dimensions as the original (17" wide, 21" long, 4.8" deep). It features a solid AAA sitka spruce top, high-quality ebony fingerboard with abalone and mother of pearl block inlays, "G"-shield headstock inlay and gold Grover Rotomatic tuning machines.
Designed in the late 1960s as Guild's first jumbo 12-strings, the F-512 and its sibling, the F-412, are two of Guild's most enduring and popular guitars. The F-512 has solid rosewood back and sides.
The quality and widespread use of Guild's jumbo 12-strings have earned 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 solid construction. While the body size and scale length are the same as Guild's 6-string jumbos, Guild's 12-strings are 1-13/16" wide at the nut, and feature a double truss rod system and Guild's time-tested jumbo bracing pattern.
