zZounds Expert Review
This Guild 12-string is yet another steal compared to other acoustic guitars in this price range. A completely solid-wood mahogany guitar will usually cost you much more, but in this case, it is very reasonably priced. The guitar has a certain snappiness to it that I enjoyed, which was accented by the 12-string configuration. More dense jazz chords sounded really nice and articulate on this one, but when strummed, the guitar was able to handle it without any audible distortion. Overall, it is a pretty bright-sounding guitar, so keep this in mind if you are picky about how your acoustics handle low frequencies. That being said, the D-125-12 has wonderful overtones and gives notes a good degree of depth and ability to cut through mixes easily. The action was pretty good without any modification, so I personally didn't feel I was fighting to fret chords anywhere along the neck. The tuners were also stable and held tune well, which is a plus considering how much of an issue it can be with other 12-strings. If you'd like a great all-solid-wood 12-string, you really can't beat the features and playability of this Guild.

4.5 out of 5 (6 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Guild D 125 12 String"
Overall: I just received mine yesterday - a birthday present from my wife and kids. This is a beautiful rig with great, full sound, crisp treble and low fretboard action - a must for any twelve string guitar! I tuned it up to Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here and stayed up all night just playing it on a number of twelve string classics(i.e. Gordon Lightfoot's "Wreck of the Edmund Fitgerald" and "Too Much of Anything" off the Who's Next album. This is a great value for the price and it comes with a fairly decent hardshell case also. I ike the mahogany finish - it's unique in both style and playability - I love this guitar. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for real value at a reasonable price.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "I've temporarily forgotten that I own other guitars."
Sound: I would change only one thing; I would make it a little less glossy (but this is spoken by someone whose other favorite guitars are a 000-15 and a faded brown SG). It's a minor quibble, because the sound is perfect for me and my voice. On second thought, change nothing. Don't add any cutaways or electronics or more inlays. It's just right. Feature: As I said above, I love all mahogany-top guitars, so the wood was the main feature that drew me here. Otherwise, it has 12 strings and 12 tuners, so that's it for features. Though I should mention the very-high-quality TKL hardshell case, which is an unbelievable feature to include at this price. Ease of Use: The playing action is low and the satin-finish neck is silky and perfectly proportioned for my playing style. I can't imagine that any 6-string player would have any trouble with the jump to 12 on this beauty. Quality: I hope to own this guitar for the rest of my life, and leave provisions for it in my will. The initial quality seems great and I'm trusting that Guild is using the same quality control in their overseas production facilities that they use here at home. Value: This guitar is worth at least twice its current selling price on zzounds. Manufacturer Support: I have not yet dealt directly with Guild. I do want to say though that this is the second guitar that I have bought from zzounds.com, and their service has been great! Overall: Rather than focussing on the technical aspects, I want to say that finding a guitar is a very personal path. The D-125 12 spoke to me because I love mahogany top guitars (my favorite six-string acoustic is my Martin 000-15 and my favorite electric is my Gibson faded brown SG) and I've loved Guild 12 strings since I first played a friend's in 1973. So my expectations were high for this guitar and they were all exceeded. What I didn't expect to find is that this is THE perfect guitar for my voice. I don't think there's any way to plan that. I'm in a honeymoon period with this guitar, where it can do no wrong, and where I can't bring myself to touch any others.
