1973 Guild F-212

1973 Guild F-212

Guild 12-string guitars made while the company was still run by its founders and original owners are among the most endearing 12-string guitars ever made. Over the years there were a host of models, in various sizes and of various woods, but none, and I do mean none, are cooler than the F-212. It has solid mahogany back and sides and a solid spruce top, gives exactly the clear piano-like tones that 12-string guitars were originally intended to emulate, well over a hundred years ago. Over time Guild had models that were similar to the F-212 and either a bit smaller or somewhat larger, but the F-212 has always been considered to be the perfect one. And this particular F-212 is the most perfect example I've seen since I sold them new, over fifty years ago. It is that clean and wonderful. It looks 99% perfect, and it is. Still original shiny and you’d be hard pressed to find the very few teeny scratches that are there. And there is virtually no fret wear. No cracks, no repairs ever needed nor done, no issues of any kind whatsoever. This 1973 Guild F-212 is a time capsule. Bought new in the 1970s and I’m told played a wee bit and put away ever since, untouched, and it looks it. The action is easy and superb and the tone and volume are, well, I'm in love. Still has its original serial-numbered hang tag and serial-numbered warranty card. Even has its original sales receipt, dated 1975, from a local music school, which must have had it in stock for a little while. It is, simply, the most heart-throb 12-string guitar I've had here in decades. Comes with its original hard shell case, of course. $2495 w/ohsc
