    Even the Chinese ones are not cheap. Can't imagine what I would have to pay for a USA Guild 12.

    Well, they've been moving their factory, and they haven't been making them, so we're talking used. I lucked out getting tipped off about my 2002 Corona-built JF30-12 on craigs in SoCal for 800 bucks! Ebony fretboard, hello? It's essentially an F-412 and performs like one! So there are good deals to be had, but you may have to wait around awhile. And meanwhile learn what to look for, and what to avoid.....

    Love those Maple dreads.

    It's the Guild jumbos that I love. Solid rosewood back or unbraced arched back maple laminate, they're everything I want in a 6 or 12-string.

    Honestly, my photographs cannot fully capture the cherryburst colour gracing the solid spruce top. The finish is actually more like an autumn-burst; it has an amber quality that gently melts into antique orange when under direct light; the overall dusky shading is simply gorgeous.

    Yeah, that is a gorgeous burst! Major congrats, Vik, and welcome to the boards.

    And that dark fretboard looks like ebony! Sweet!

    .....and my 1953 Epi Triumph Regent......

    Congrats on getting that back. That's a good one! A much more desirable vintage than the 1939 Epi Zenith I've got up for sale...

    Hey Dennis,
    What do you recommend? The seller said he just got the Guild set up and new strings, so I haven't changed them yet. I think I'll take it down to my tech and have him check it over and restring it while he's at it. ;^)
    Hey Retired,
    Sorry I missed your comment until now. Yeah, I picked up an ES339 Pro, and I don't use the split coil much. I l...

    What brand and gauge of strings are you using on your 12 string(s) currently?

    Hi Cougar. Thanks for the help on the Epiphone. I did get the black Standard, it plays and sounds great. My cousin who taught me to play had a black Gibson with white trim, always thought it was cool. I could have gone a $100.00 over the budget for a Pro, but now have enough extra for a Blues Pedal. Thanks again for your help.
