Guild F-2512E Acoustic-Electric Guitar

The full-bodied and powerful tone of this Guild dreadnought provides guitarists with a classic acoustic sound and balanced voicing. The Guild F-2512E Maple combines two of Guild's most iconic specialties: twelve string and jumbo guitars. With their large, rounded bodies, jumbo acoustic guitars have been Guild's forte since 1954; combining this shape with the ever-popular 12-string construction results in a full-toned, impressively voiced acoustic instrument. Built with a solid spruce top, maple sides, and arched maple back, the F-2512E Maple has the bright, jangly tone characteristic of Guild's twelve string guitars. Guild's signature arched back design allows for great volume and projection, long sustain, and a lush, full sound. The F-2512E Maple features Guild's AP-1 pickup, an Indian rosewood fingerboard and bridge, bone nut and saddle, pearloid rosette, period-correct tortoiseshell pickguard, and a matte polyurethane finish.

Overall: So...I've been playing for 35 years or so and have owned a few dozen 12 strings including acoustic, electric, and acoustic-electric. There's ALWAYS compromise with a 12, and this one is no exception. The pros: sharp looks, a superb neck, decent gig bag, great price point. The cons: The electronics are super basic - volume only, and the country of origin - China. This one will suit my needs for acoustic 12 string recording while plugged in, but not so much when mic'ed up, as it is a tad, just a tad, bit tinny to my ears. The beauty of this neck profile made this one a keeper for me. I can EQ out the tinniness with an EQ when recording when plugged in and that was it's primary function for me. It's not going to have much in the way of resale value, but that's ok due to it's low price point. I'd buy it again, it suits my needs perfectly. Haven't needed manufacturer support, so can't comment on that or warranty.

Overall: Guild does it again this time with a budget in mind. Easy playing and great tone. After going to the music store and trying every 12-string from Taylor, Fender, Martin, Gibson and on and on Guild in my opinion makes the best sounding 12-string. I tried their F-212 at $4,000 and this one at a much more reasonable $499 I didn't notice a quality or sound quality drop. Came perfectly setup straight out of the box. This can be used as a practice or would hold up well in any performance scenario.
