Throughout the '60s and '70s, Guild manufactured some of the best and most popular acoustic 12 string guitars on the market, with models like the F-412 and F-512 being used extensively on stage and in the studio at the time due to their beautifully open sound. Manufactured in the Westerly factory, this 1975 Guild F-512 is a perfect example of the guitars made in that period. Featuring a Sitka Spruce top with Indian Rosewood back and sides, this F-512 has an incredibly full and balanced sound with plenty of clarity across the board. The guitar is finished with gold hardware and and deluxe Guild V block neck inlays.
This guitar is in excellent condition, with only minor cosmetic wear. There is a small piece of binding that has been replaced on the headstock, and a sticker has been removed from the pick guard at some point that has left a very small footprint behind. There is also some slight lacquer movement around the bridge. A transducer pickup has been fitted. This guitar also includes its original Guild case.
