I Got this guitar for a couple of reasons. The 1st being that when I was in high school I used a 60's model guild 12 string very similiar to this one, and I loved that guitar I did tons of demos with it. Sadly though that guitar was not mine. I am now at a point where I really wanted a 12 string and when I found this one I bought without hesitation. Secondly this guitar fell in the price range I wanted to spend. Sure I could have gotten an Alvarez for a lot less and it maybe just as nice, but to me nothing compares to the sound of a Guild 12 String. Lastly it came with a case.
All of the 12's I've played in stores have sounded either horribly unbalanced or dead, like their body cavities were stuffed with cotton. NOT this guitar! It has a full bodied sound and great balanced tone. The craftsmanship is superb, the action is great, and the guitar is surprisingly light. The F212 easily competes with guitars twice it's price. Guild built a great guitar.
This guitar is easily the best 12 string I've played in its price range. It's beautiful, full sounding, and tonally responsive. The action was set up perfect straight from the factory, which can sometimes be a problem with 12 strings. The deluxe hard shell case is an added bonus. This guitar is worth every penny.
Got this in the mail 3 weeks ago and played it for a couple of days. Its a keeper, so i cut the strings and installed a set of K&K Mini's and a set of D'addario phospor bronze strings(lights). It will need time to open up, but right now it sounds very clean and chimey, I use a drop d tuning to do a lot of Gordon lightfoot and it sounds great. It gets several songs a nite when I gig and so far it is a great addition to my rig.
