Designed in the late 1960s as Guilds first
jumbo 12-strings, the F412 and F512 are some of our most enduring and popular
guitars. While both share many of the same features, the F412 has an arched
curly Maple back and solid curly Maple sides, while the F512 has solid Rosewood
back and sides. Painstakingly true to their vintage roots, these new versions
of the F412 and F512 are the essence of what a 12-string guitar should be.
These powerful beauties feature the same body dimensions as the originals:
theyre 17" wide, 21" long and 4.8" deep, with solid AAA
Sitka Spruce tops. The high quality Ebony fingerboards are detailed with Abalone
and Mother-of-Pearl block position inlays. Both sport Guilds famous
G-shield headstock inlay and gold Grover Rotomatic® tuning machines.
