    I have to say being the owner of many 12 string guitars in my lifetime...none I mean NONE compare to the sound of the Guild F-512. I have owned 3 other Guild 12 Strings, a Yamaha, a Hagstrom, a Jay Turser (Don't laugh it was a nice guitar), a Harley Benton and some others I can't seem to recall but the Guild F-512 well it is the Gold Standard of acoustic 12 strings for me just like Ric's are for electric 12's for many. I could tell a Guild with my eyes closed. I believe once my guitar purge is pretty much over I may buy one of these. For me personally it would be the cherry on top of my Guitar Collecting Sundae. Anyway - hope you enjoy the orchestra!

    Yea, they are some of my favorites as well. The combo of the huge jumbo tone and the huge 12 string tone make for a... huge tone.

    I have the Jay Turser if someone here wants it for a song. The Guild does sound amazing though. But at $3700, that would be grounds for divorce for me.

    I think this is the first time I have given a 12 string a proper listen. Holy Shit!

    If it were Red...nah I am trimming not adding. I got looking around at new Guild F-512's and at $3,700 even after I purge almost everything it would be a stretch. Guess I am gonna have to keep my Guild GAD G212. Heck it's paid for.

    Not as Orchestral but not totally bad either...

    I've always liked Guild acoustics in general. That's sounds amazing!
