Visual beauty, stunning sound, trusted legacy.
Painstakingly true to its vintage roots, this version of the F412 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 widespread use of Guild's 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 Guild's 6-string jumbos, Guild's 12-strings are 1-13/16" wide at the nut, and feature a double truss rod system and Guild's time-tested jumbo

Out side of my dog Buck, this was the best gift I have ever got. Once you get past the incredible workmanship and the sweet sound the fingerboard action just melts in your hands; Even the case is a work of functional artistic engineering.
