Guild F-512 12 String Demo with Trevor Menear


collapse expand iconDescription

If you ask fans of Guild's iconic 12 strings, the model most likely to be mentioned is the F-512. With its solid Sitka spruce top mated to a solid Indian rosewood back and sides, this updated, USA-made version, sings like the legendary model it is. Adirondack spruce bracing helps give this F-512 incredible projection and volume, while helping it to also produce shimmering highs, singing mids and a warm, focused bass response that truly sets it apart. Elegant cosmetic appointments mirror that of Guild's premium D-55, with abalone and mother-of-pearl "V-block" inlays, classic "railroad track" fingerboard purfling, gold hardware and a beautiful nitrocellulose lacquer finish.
