F-512 MAPLE

MSRP: $4,630
With LR Baggs Pickup: $5,000

The F-512 Maple is back and better than ever. Formerly the F-512, 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 arched flamed maple back and maple sides. Created on the same arch press that’s been a part of Guild manufacturing since 1985, the F-512 Maple provides sharply focused trebles and an articulate mid-range, perfect for a full, centralized, harp-like sound. Braced with delicate, scalloped Adirondack spruce, this model produces the shimmering highs 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. Available in Natural finish and with LR Baggs Electronics.
