Guild 12-strings have been popular since they were first introduced in 1964, prized for their full tone and easy playability. The classic, jangly sound associated with Guild 12-strings provides players with a unique voice that can only come from a Guild guitar. Built with solid African mahogany top, back and sides, the D-1212 is a dreadnought sized 12-string, featuring a bone nut and saddle, mother-of-pearl rosette, and period-correct tortoiseshell pickguard. A mother-of-pearl rosette and Guild’s iconic Chesterfield headstock emblem reminiscent of 1960s models complete the package. The D-1212 includes Guild’s new premium acoustic gig bag and comes in a Natural gloss finish.
