When thinking of Guild's iconic 12 strings, there is no other model that comes to mind clearer than the F-512. With a solid Sitka spruce top mated to solid Indian rosewood back and sides, this USA-made F-512E acoustic-electric sings like the legendary model it is.

Adirondack spruce bracing helps the F-512E to have incredible projection and volume, while producing 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, including abalone and mother-of-pearl "V-block" inlays, classic "railroad track' fingerboard purfling, gold hardware and a beautiful nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Premium specifications and exceptional playability not commonly associated with this style of guitar makes the F-512 one of the most sought-after 12-string models in history.

This F-512E comes in your choice of Natural or Antique Burst finishes and is equipped with an L.R. Baggs Anthem pickup. 

A premium humidified hardshell case is included.
