A total classic 1985 Guild 12 string that produces a sound that has been the backbone of many a 70's and 80's hit record...

This product is currently on hold.

A common sight on Top of the Pops for 70’s and 80’s bands, this rare and sought after Guild 12-string from 1985 (last year of production for these) is a beautifully put together guitar. With mahogany back and sides instead of the more common rosewood or maple and the larger than normal body, this has a big sound that fits right into that classic 12 string area.

You have probably heard this sound on many a record from bygone eras as it was one of the more popular 12 string acoustics in the recording studio and for good reason too. The sound is sparkly and full bodied with great detail, allowing it sit in a complex mix with perfection.

The neck is large (as you would expect) but extremely comfortable, with a wide C profile.

Condition is excellent, and pretty much Mint! In fact this is probably the finest example, possibly, on planet Earth. In fact we challenge you to find finer..!

These only come up for sale extremely rarely, so grab yourself a great example of what Guild were producing at the time before Fender took over…
