1967 Guild F-312 12-String Spruce and Brazilian Rosewood

Guild has been leading the industry with 12 string guitars since they were introduced in the 1960s. The quality and ubiquity of their jumbo 12-strings have garnered Guild a permanent place in guitar history. The Jumbo-shaped Guild 12-strings stand as some of most recognizable Guild acoustics ever made. The Guild F-312, which was also called the Artist 312, used Brazilian Rosewood for its back and sides and Ebony for its fingerboard, setting it apart from the Mahogany F-212 and F-112 (though an important change came in 1970 with a switch from Brazilian to Indian Rosewood).

Guild 12-string guitars became incredibly famous for not only thieir balance and tone quality, but action and playability which was unmatched by competitors. The now famous double truss rod ensures lasting playability, ensuring you can always keep the neck set just right.

This guitar features a Spruce top, Brazilian rosewood back and sides, ebony fretboard, rosewood bridge, mahogany neck, black head-stock veneer with inlayed Guild-logo.

It was made with old time, straight grained, quartersawn Brazilian. While the figure is not as dramatic, the structure of the wood is exactly what gave Brazilian its reputation in the first
place. It is vitreous, dense, and strong - capable of being thinned without breaking under the stress of 12 strings tuned to full pitch in a long scaled instrument.

This 1967 Guild F-312 12-String Spruce and Brazilian Rosewood SKU-9217 is in good condition for a vintage instrument of it's age. There are a few cracks on the top which have been repaired and appear to be stable. The binding is missing from the peghead and the tuners have been replaced. It has minor fretwear and includes the original hardshell case.
