Guild F-512E Rosewood Antique Burst

The F-512E Rosewood is back and better than ever. This USA-made jumbo has been a staple of the Guild line since the late 1960’s. and features a tight grained solid Sitka spruce top with Indian Rosewood back and sides. Created on the same arch press that’s been a part of Guild manufacturing since 1985, the F512E provides shimmering highs, singing mids and a warm, focused bass response that truly sets it apart. Braced with delicate, scalloped Adirondack spruce, this model produces the legendary sound that players have come to expect from a Guild 12-string.

Elegant cosmetic appointments include the classic Guild “V-block” inlays, gold Gotoh hardware, and a beautiful Nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Exceptional build quality and premium specifications make it a worthy heir to the historic Guild 12-string legacy.
