Enables left-handed guitarists to experience a timeless classic.
Designed in the late 1960s as Guild's first jumbo 12-strings, the F-412 acoustic guitar is one of their most enduring and popular guitars. The Guild F-412 has an arched curly maple back and solid curly maple sides. Painstakingly true to its vintage roots, this new version of the F-412 has the same body dimensions as the original (17" wide, 21" long, 4.8" deep). It features a solid AAA sitka spruce top, high-quality ebony fingerboard with abalone and mother of pearl block inlays, "G" shield headstock inlay and gold Grover Rotomatic tuning machines.
The quality and ubiquity of their jumbo 12-strings have earned Guild a permanent place in guitar history. As historians Tom and Mary Anne Evans once wrote, "The basic virtue of Guild 12-strings is that they are very loud and [have] a clarity and definition of sound not normally associated with 12-string guitars."
One of the keys to achieving that clarity and definition is solid construction. While the body size and scale length are the same as their 6-string jumbos, the 12-strings are 1-13/16" wide at the nut, and feature a double truss rod system and a time-tested jumbo bracing pattern.
