      Comments about Guild GAD Series D-125-12 12-String Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

      Loved this guitar right out of the box. It is beautiful to look at and the craftsmanship is of very high quality. Don't care much for the factory strings as I am an Elixir guy, but it still sounds wonderful until I get around to changing them. The sound is very balanced and projection is great. the tone is even across all strings whether you pick it or strum. Excellent value for the money and the case is a good hardshell with ample protection and 5 latches. Would recommend this 12 string acoustic to anyone who wants a twelve but can't afford the big money. Sounds far better than the MUCH MORE expensive guitar I've had for many years. I've sold that one already actually. Very pleased, you CANNOT go wrong with a Guild acoustic.

        Really a lot of guitar for the price. Big sound for a dread. Sustain/resonance like all Guild Jumbos. Very pleased with my purchase.

        Comments about Guild GAD Series D-125-12 12-String Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

        I've just purchased this guitar while in Paris for my honeymoon. I had just damaged an '74 Giannini 12 string hummingbird rip off I had, and had decided not to play around with old stuff anymore. It's just too much of a headache to deal with stuff that is always on the shop no matter how careful you are with it.

        Anyway, I wasn't really on tight budget, but was looking for a good value. I researched a little bit before going, and had settled for 3 different seemingly good deals at hand: this one for EUR 570, a Furch SJ20 (upcoming czech manufacturer also branded as Stonebridge in UK, and getting a reputation as the "European Martin") for EUR 900, and a Gibson Songwriter Deluxe 12 for EUR 1800.

        As planned and scheduled with the shop I had contacted earlier, I went down to Pigalle District and played the three of them.

        Furch was not as impressive as praised in many reviews I had read. Good action, but not a great projection. Kind of a surprisingly tiny sound.

        Gibson, in the other hand, was amazing in every aspect. But for the money, that was to be expected.

        Then came the underdog. Soundwise, it was very impressive. Warm, yet sparkly and chimey. Excellent projection and definition, filling the room maybe as well as the Gibson did. Great looks, with a beatifuly grained mahogany all around, and a sleek lacqueur finish that sets it appart from Martin's 15 series that the photos on the website wrongfully make it resemble. It has also a satin finish on the neck, which is something I think should the standart for any guitar, acoustic or electric.

        Fettish wise, my heart was with the Gibson (objectively, "Made in China" didn't make any difference, but you know...). It would have looked great beside my J45 Custom. But value wise, this was clearly the winner. So I've I took it to my hotel room and put out a serenade for the misses, who ended up actually glad with the purchase of yet another guitar.

        Now the down sides:

        1) flawed factory inspection, since I've later noticed they've missed the lack of an end pin. But being already in love with the thing, I haven't bothered even taking it back to shop. Since I want it to have a pickup instaled soon, and that it made just the room for the jack, I made this a perfectly good excuse.

        2) The other not so great thing about it is the case. The outside finish is quite sloppy, with sewing and ouside band a little lose, as well as the metal braces. The vinyl cover was also poorly layed down and glued, so that there are bubles that make the top diamond engraving a little crooked. But the interior was fine, with a nice fluffy crimson plush. But at the end of the day this case stooded well being dispatched to a 30 hours, 2 conncetions flight back home. The guitar got back to my hands intact and in tune.

        All in all, a great all solid wood guitar that sounds as expected from this sort of feature, and for a price that's actually puzzling given what you hear and feel when you play it.

        I have great guitars, but never have had a Guild before. But if their american made 12 strings sound as good as this, they surely make up for their reputation.

        If it's sound you're after, and not a price tag, buy yourself one these. You won't be sorry.

          Comments about Guild GAD Series D-125-12 12-String Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar:

          I purchased this Guild 12 string as a used instrument from Musicians Friend. I had been looking for an affordable 12 string for some time and was attracted to the all-mahogany construction, as I own several older Martin mahogany guitars and really like the punchy tone. When the guitar arrived, I was stunned by its finish quality and big, trademark Guild sound. The neck is somewhat narrower and rounder in profile compared to most 12 strings, which I find quite comfortable. I am a professional luthier and musician and I work on a lot of guitars. This instrument proves that "Made in China" can indicate great work, although that is not the case yet in many other guitars that I have seen. I have seen Chinese classical instruments improve to the point that they rival the European makers, and it looks like they are headed that way with guitars as well. After setting up the guitar and installing a pick up, I can say that I am very pleased with my purchase.
