Guild F-512 ( Antique Sunburst )

History of the Guild F-512

Designed in the late 1960’s as Guild’s first jumbo 12-strings, the F-412 and F-512 are some of our most enduring and popular guitars. While both share many of the same features, the F-412 has an arched curly Maple back and solid curly Maple sides, while the F-512 has solid Rosewood back and sides. Painstakingly true to their vintage roots, Guild’s modern versions of the F-412 and F-512 are the essence of what a 12-string guitar should be. These powerful beauties feature the same body dimensions as the originals: they’re 17″ wide, 21″ long and 4.8″ deep, with solid AAA Sitka Spruce tops. The quality ebony fingerboards are detailed with Abalone and Mother-of-Pearl block position inlays. Both sport Guild’s famous G-shield headstock inlay and gold Grover Rotomatic tuning machines.
