A popular guitar from the 1960s reborn for the modern player with the added bonus of an L.R. Baggs pickup.

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.
