1974 Guild F-512 NT 12-String Natural Top Sitka Spruce and Indian 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 Guild F-512 is regarded as one of Guild's finest 12-string guitars. It has a jumbo body and larger than life sound. This model was famously played by Pete Townshend on many solo and Who recordings starting in 1971, with "Who's Next." Pete can still be seen performing with this model today.

The F-512 features a Jumbo body with a solid Sitka spruce top and rosewood back and sides. This 12-string became incredibly famous for not only it's balance and tone quality. It is also know for its action and playability that was unmatched by competitors. The now famous double truss rod ensures lasting playability, ensuring you can always keep the neck set just right.

The jumbo body measures 17" at the lower bout and is 5" deep. This provides a large sound cavity resulting in surprising volume and deep, resounding bass. Clarity is not lost and the trebles ring with a clarity and definition that is seldom found on 12-string guitars.

This guitar has aged quite nicely through the years, though does show some wear. There are numerous dings and scratches throughout. This can be seen in the pictures. The Sunrise pickup made by Jim Kaufman has been installed over the soundhole. The Sunrise pickups are almost as famous as the guitar itself, and is legendary for it's accurate reproduction of sound. Players such as Keith Richards, Richard Thompson, CSNY, and Shawn Colvin rely on the Sunrise for their live sound! There is some oxidation on the tuners, also pictured. Original hardshell case included.
