A Great 12-string for the Discriminating Guitarist!

For the acoustic-electric guitarist in need of volume and great tone from their 12-string, Guild Guitars offers it's F-1512E 12-string Jumbo acoustic-electric guitar. Adorned with well thought out, and high-end features such as NuBone nut and saddle material, a vintage-correct tortoiseshell pickguard, and Guild's iconic "Chesterfield" headstock emblem, the F-1512E is a beauty of an instrument. The solid-wood construction and Fishman Sonitone pickup system combine to give it a beautifully huge and detailed tone. And the F-1512E is engineered to play wonderfully all night long.

Guild F-1512E 12-string Jumbo Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • High-end adornments display the quality of the instrument
  • Discreet Fishman Sonitone pickup system for performing live
  • Jumbo body style is great for projection and versatility
High-end adornments display the quality of the instrument

The Guild F-1512E is a high-quality 12-string acoustic-electric guitar, and carries the features to prove it. Along with the all solid-wood construction for exceptional tone, you get the unmistakable look of Guild's vintage-correct tortoise pickguard, and well-known "Chesterfield" headstock inlay. Maybe less apparent at first glance, but incredibly noticeable for you, will be the NuBone used for the string nut and saddle for ultimate tone transfer from the strings to the guitar's soundboard.

Discreet Fishman Sonitone pickup system for performing live

If a guitar is aiming for greatness, it needs to only use the best components. That's why Guild chose to offer Fishman's Sonitone pickup system in the F-1512E. Not only will you be playing with one of the biggest names in the acoustic amplification business, but the design of the Sonitone system is discreet. The controls are accessed via the sound hole, so you won't have a bulky preamp and tone-sucking hole cut into the side of your instrument for the sake of getting a good live sound.

Jumbo body style is great for projection and versatility

Jumbo bodied acoustic guitars are some of the best instruments out there for guitarists in need of power from their guitar. The F-1512E's large size and rosewood construction not only offers a rich and full sound, but the F-1512E's tone is wonderful for punching through a mix. And it's mid-scooped tone is great for accompanying the human voice. Because of their recognizably clear and robust sound, Jumbo acoustic guitars are some of the most popular and desirable acoustics out there for strong rhythm work.

Guild F-1512E Jumbo Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • A nicely appointed and comfortable 12-string acoustic-electric guitar
  • Jumbo body style
  • Fishman Sonitone pickup system for great live tone
  • All solid-wood construction
  • Vintage-correct pickguard and headstock inlay
  • NuBone string nut and saddle
  • Vintage neck profile
The Guild F-1512E offers a ton of power in a great 12-string!

I bought my guitar a couple a months ago and just played it on my fender amp and it sounds awesome.I played a couple of Beatles songs and my guitar sounded just as good as John Lennon's and George Harrison's .Yes I'm very pleased.
Music background: Played since 1964

What an Ax !

Several years ago I sold my 1976 jumbo 12. It had great sound and volume, but a large neck and high action made it a challenge to play. All those negatives however did not change my desire for another 12 string. The F1215E has a great neck (for a 12 string) nice low action and most importantly that great Guild 12 String S O U N D. I love it and you will too!

A Wonderful Instrument!

I got this guitar from Sweetwater about a week ago. It sounds great, the workmanship is remarkable, and it is easy to play all the way up the neck. The woods used in its construction are gorgeous. I've been playing the guitar for more than 58 years.
Music background: Seasoned Amateur

Best 12 string for the money!

I played one of these in the store for 2 weeks before buying. I could not put the thing down. Now that I have my own, it's even better. YOU WILL NOT WANT TO PUT THIS ONE DOWN. It is an absolute joy to play. The action is PERFECT. I can barre all the way up the neck just as if I was playing a 6 string. No adjustments needed - it actually arrived IN TUNE. With that said - hats off to Sweetwater for delivering my gear in perfect playable condition. I can not recommend this guitar highly enough. It is easily worth twice the money. Get one while you can.

Very Nice Guild 12 string

Great sounding, easy to play, 12 string, quality build instrument.
