“That is the best acoustic 12-string ever made.” said Grant as I sat strumming the Guild F412 in preparation for this review. It’s not everyday I hear such praise coming from Grant, nor is it a statement that is easily dismissed. With almost 40 years experience in guitar restoration and repair, Grant’s opinion on any guitar is something I try to pay close attention to. I asked him to elaborate; “The sound, construction quality, design, even the look… this is the guitar all other 12 strings are aiming to beat. The sixties and seventies era Guild 12 string guitars were the only ones that didn’t need constant repair and service. They have a timeless design and I am happy to see the they have gone back to their historical roots.”

With Grant’s words in mind I put the guitar down and turned to face my keyboard and begin writing… but there really isn’t much more to say. The more I think about it, the more I realize just how true Grant’s statement is. The F412 has the perfect 12 string sound; a bright, shimmery high end with all the warmth you could ever need.
