The only thing cheap about this guitar is its price...

Comments about Guild Westerly Collection F-2512E Maple Jumbo 12-String:

I never thought I'd own a Guild, until now. I got a sensational deal, and couldn't say "no." Took delivery form FedEx, an day earlier than expected. Only issue, was a pin-sized flaw on the front edge of the body binding. Didn't take all that long to tune it up (I like playing 12-strings tuned to a "D' scale, and use a capo where needed). It has a very full-bodied sound; since I never had an acoustic guitar with a piezo transducer, I was awe-struck when I played it through my Vox (original series, Valvetronix) amp. Whatever shortcomings this guitar may have played "unplugged," piping though an amp takes care of that. Action is great. It's been years since I had a 12-string, and this Guild made me realize how much I missed in not having one. It is flat out, plain and simple, such a joy to play, and easier than one may realize how infatuating the sound and tonal qualities of this guitar can be, "unplugged," or not. I only hope that it ages as well as the more expensive Guild's. I expect to get many years of enjoyment out of owning and playing this wonderful guitar. It may be an "entry-level" model; but, it's STILL a Guild!

Famous Guild 12 string guitar sound at an affordable price. Great playing guitar. Good electronics, nice solid spruce top and beautiful maple back and sides. Every guitar player should have a 12 string in their collection. A great guitar for any level player.

    Comments about Guild Westerly Collection F-2512E Maple Jumbo 12-String:

    We all want top tier guitars, but not all of us can afford to burn a hole in our pockets. Here comes Guild, with top tier quality at a mid tier price. The playability and feel is sublime, and the ring of the sound fills up space so fast that you might be floored upon contact! Oh, how sweet 12 strings sound. Just try a chord, and feel that shimmer. Guild has given us reachable beauty!

    Guild has always been known for their sound and to get one in this price range is great. The maple body give you a nice bright, crisp sound that cuts through any band or recording. Jumbo body really rounds out the sound and opens it up a lot. Perfect for any collection.

      Comments about Guild Westerly Collection F-2512E Maple Jumbo 12-String:

      This is a wonderful guitar. I couldn't believe I could get a new 12 string this good for the price - even includes a bag. I like the simplicity of the appearance - the electronic controls and jack are concealed inside the sound hole and strap button. I find the tone very balanced and refined. There is a lot of open space in the sound. It doesn't have the deepest lows around, but I don't want a bass heavy guitar. I was surprised that there was not more bass from this large a body. The action was good right off the bat. It is very light weight - almost makes me nervous that it is fragile, but it is well put together.

      Disclaimer - I get a free capo for writing a review :)
