An Acoustic-electric 12-string with Jumbo Sound
Guild's F-1512E acoustic-electric guitar combines the epic projection and deep resonance of their jumbo body style with the smooth and glassy 12-string sound. Thanks to the F-1512E's choice tonewoods, jumbo body, and arched back, you'll get the volume and projection you need for live gigs. This guitar's rich, bold tone comes courtesy of the Sitka spruce top and rosewood back and sides. Factor in the mahogany neck with binding for smooth playability, and the Fishman Sonolite pickup system, and you've got an impressive 12-string performer onstage or in the studio with the Guild F-1512E acoustic-electric guitar.
Guild F-1512E 12-string Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
- Arched-back jumbo body delivers exceptional volume and projection
- Solid spruce top delivers a rich, sparkling tone that gets better with age
- Fishman electronics deliver fantastic plugged-in performance
You'll be impressed by the volume you can get from the Guild F-1512E, due to the arched back and jumbo body style. That means you'll be able to play with nuance, flowing between rich, full chords, delicate passages, and aggressive runs. Whereas other 12-string guitars may top out and start to sound indistinct, the F-1512E remains clear and focused.Solid spruce top delivers a rich, sparkling tone that gets better with age
Guild knows that the choice of top wood can make or break the sound of an acoustic guitar. For the F-1512E, Guild chose a solid Sitka spruce top. Chosen as much for its look as its tone, spruce has a bold sound with excellent projection. And because the top is made of solid spruce (rather than a laminate), the tone of your F-1512E will age gracefully, gaining enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by.Fishman electronics deliver fantastic plugged-in performance
The Fishman Sonolite pickup system in the F-1512E features an under-saddle transducer with an end-pin mounted active preamp. This gives the F-1512E superior onstage sound with the exceptional headroom needed for truly dynamic playing. And, with controls conveniently mounted inside the soundhole, it's easy to dial in your sound.
