F-512E ATB

Famously played by Tom Petty, David Gilmour and Stevie Ray Vaughan, we defined the 12-string sound in the 1960s and these iconic guitars continue to be the most sought after 12-string models today. The F-512, made in Southern California, continues this legacy through a jumbo shape, solid AAA Sitka spruce top and solid Indian rosewood back and sides. Braced with delicate, scalloped Adirondack spruce, this model produces shimmering highs, singing mids and a warm, focused bass response that truly sets it apart. Decorated with Guild’s classic MOP V-block inlays, railroad track fingerboard purfling, and fully bound traditional headstock, players will feel like they are holding a piece of history while starting their own. The F-512 is finished with Nitrocellulose and is available in Natural or Antique Burst with the option of an LR Baggs pickup. Comes in a premium hardshell humidified case.

MSRP: $5,125
WITHOUT LR BAGGS PICKUP: $4,750
