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-1212E is a dreadnought sized 12 string, featuring a bone nut and saddle, mother of pearl rosette, and period correct tortoiseshell pickguard. While the mother of pearl rosette and Guild’s iconic Chesterfield headstock emblem reminiscent of 1960s models complete the package.

The D-1212E includes Guild’s lightweight polyfoam case and comes with a Guild/Fishman AP1 with Sonicore pickup.
