I've been giving this one a bit of a clean up and a fresh set of strings today - it's a 1969 Guild F-212. I've had it for years and it's one of those guitars I can go ages without playing it, pick it up wondering why I keep it around then get lost in big jangly chords for the rest of the afternoon. I think it needs an electric 12 for company...



Any other 12 string enthusiasts out there?

For something totally different, it's... oh, it's another Guild.

That Guild acoustic looks wonderful Jayyj; a nice 12 string has been on my wish list for a long time, may need to go for it one of these days!

I had a Martin D-12-20 from late sixties. Beautiful instrument, but I had trouble tuning. Looking back, should've taken it to a tech for a once over. Sticking with 6 strings for now.

I have two 12 stringers....I inherited a '64 Framus 12 string from cousin....no, not the Hootenanny, but plays and sound great nevertheless...I also inherited his '64 Rickenbacker RM1997. I am in process of commissioning a friend of building a 12 string that is set up the same as the '64 RM, so ultimately I will sell the Rickenbacker 12 string

I had the same 12 string. My parents bought me a new F-212 for Xmas in 1965. Like an idiot I sold it on a whim somewhere in the 90's. I recently bought a new Guild 2512E. It's a nice guitar...but just not the same...nowhere near the class of the F-212!

I bought a Taylor jumbo over 15 years ago mostly to play Christmas music on.

I liked it well enough until I got a 9 string, which is far easier to play and gives me most of what I'm looking for from a 12.

Here's my '79 D-35 alongside a 'rescued' D-212 from 1981. Had to de-mold the 12 string which hadn't been out of the case in decades, and replace the shrunken plastic bridge.
