Guild D-1212E Westerly Collection Dreadnought 12-String Acoustic-Electric GuitarGuild
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. A 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 in a Natural gloss finish with a Guild/Fishman AP1 with Sonicore pickup.
Condition: When this guitar came in from the factory, the authorized refurbisher couldn't find anything wrong with it. No repairs or modifications were made to the guitar - they simply gave it a set-up and left it alone. Guitar looks mint. When we received the guitar, we straightened the neck and set the action at the 12th fret to 5/64" (bass side) and 4/64" (treble side). Guitar plays and sounds great with this set-up! All electronics are in perfect working order. Unlike most refurbished guitars, this guitar is NOT stamped "used" and the original serial # is still intact.

About our set-ups: We do our best to accurately describe the current set-up and playability of each guitar. However, due to temperature and humidity changes the guitar may experience while in transit, it's possible for the neck and body to slightly "adjust" along the way. After all, guitars are primarily wooden instruments that are highly susceptible to their environment. By the time you receive the guitar, un-box it and tune it up, you may find that it needs a slight adjustment to get it back to the set-up specs that we originally described in our listing. Please keep this in mind before purchasing.
