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. Now handcrafted in California, the Guild F-512E Maple is a truly iconic flattop reborn and elevated to new heights.
With a solid Sitka spruce top and a beautifully flamed maple back and maple sides, this F-512E looks every bit as good as a vintage Guild. Meticulously created using the companies traditional arch press, which has been an integral part of Guild's manufacturing process since 1985, this instrument delivers exquisitely focused trebles and an articulate mid-range, giving a rich, harmonically resonant tone that fills the room.
With scalloped Adirondack spruce bracing, this model produces shimmering highs that are synonymous with Guild's renowned 12-string guitars. Impeccable attention to detail extends to its luxurious finishing touches, including the iconic Guild "V-block" inlays, gold Gotoh hardware, and a vintage inspired Antique Sunburst Nitrocellulose lacquer finish.
Crafted with exceptional precision and outfitted with premium specifications, the F-512 Maple stands proudly as a worthy heir to the illustrious Guild 12-string legacy, this guitar features a comfortable 'C' profile neck, L.R. Baggs Anthem pickup system, and Guild hard case.
