1972 Guild F112 12-String Mini-Jumbo Guitar

Guild's 17" jumbo 12-strings are the ones that get the attention, but I've long been a fan of the humble F112 model. It's 000/mini-jumbo in size/shape, fits nicely in the lap, has the sturdy Guild-style double-trussrodded neck, and sounds the business. It doesn't have as deep a thunk on the lower notes as the big boys, but it has the chime, sparkle, and jangle that you want from a 12-string, especially when recording. They're also pretty dang loud and sound good with extra-light strings.

This one is a one-owner guitar, bought new-old-stock, and it came to the shop locally to get fixed-up for said owner. When it arrived, it'd seen some old work (cleats to keep a center seam tight, some adjustment of the old saddle), but was pretty-much "as-is" from the '70s. I spruced it up and now it's playing like a champ, though, and I can't wait for the owner to lay hands on it again to see what these can really be like.

Repairs included: a neck reset, fret level/dress, new fully-compensated bone saddle, cleaning, and setup.

Setup notes: action is bang-on low at hair-over 1/16" EA and 1/16" DGBE at the 12th fret, strung with an "extra-slightly-extra light" set of strings -- Jake gauges low to high: 24w/46w, 14/36w, 11/26w, 8/18w, 13/13, 10/10. This is purely for tuning to E-to-E standard and keeps the feel even and easy.
