The Westerly Collection pays homage to Guild's early history renowned for exceptional craftsmanship, quality, and for the introduction of many beloved Guild acoustics. Inspired by this golden era, all Guild Westerly Collection guitars feature premium all solid woods and a lightweight Guild case at an affordable price.

The F-1512E combines two of Guild's most iconic specialties: twelve string and jumbo guitars. With their large, rounded bodies, jumbo acoustic guitars have been Guild’s forte since 1954; combining this shape with the ever-popular 12-string construction results in a full-toned, impressively voiced acoustic instrument. A powerful Fishman Sonitone pickup adds an extra boost of amplification to this Guild classic. Built with a solid Sitka spruce top and solid Indian rosewood back and sides, the F-1512E also features an Indian rosewood fingerboard and bridge, NuBone nut and saddle, and mother-of-pearl rosette. This model also has a 1-7/8" nut width on a vintage shaped Guild neck, iconic Chesterfield headstock emblem reminiscent of 1960s Guilds, period-correct tortoiseshell pickguard, and Guild's new lightweight polyfoam case. Available in Natural gloss finish.

Welcome back to Rhode Island!!!


Growing up 20 minutes from the USA Guild plant, with the amazing legacy of family owned and built quality only to see the company sold off to a non acoustic company, killed me. Thank the powers that Cordoba bought the line and brought them back to greatness. Amazingly true to the Guild roots, everything in the line is worth playing. Try the USA stuff if you can find one! But the Westerly series Is unbelievable for the price. -this is a staff review by skern at Sam Ash 57

No One Does it Better


I have had a Guild 12 string for over 50 years, as well as Martin and Gibson six string guitars. This one is as good as the first one I received. Wonderful full tone, beautiful workmanship and fun to play. Easier to play than any 6 string I have ever had. Absolutely believe it is the best! It comes with a wonderful case too.

Amazing and Powerful


Some describe the sound of this 12 strings as a "beautiful cannon"! Very pretty tone, easy to play for a jumbo size guitar- with plenty of power. I sent back a Taylor in that was double the price - this Guild was better! Check if out. Everyone I play this guitar around is very impressed.

I love this guitar!


I love this guitar! It has an incredible sound but doesn't feel bulky like other jumbos do. I was worried that I'd have difficulty fretting some chords because of the twelve strings, but the action is fantastic and I have no trouble with playing chords.

Worth way more than the price


I've been looking for a moderately priced 12 string for years, but never picked one up that inspired me. Until today. The moment I strummed the Guild F1512E, I was sincerely impressed. Most guitars I buy are custom pro level instruments. This guitar satisfies even at a really reasonable price point. And it looks great too! I'm really excited to add this to my arsenal!

Amazing Sound Guild


I had a 12 String mid size Martin but when I got it home I discover it was Sapele body & Richlite Neck....I called Martin and spoke with a tech about my new guitar..... Put it away for 2 years and Never payed it....tinny My SA sales associate called me and told me about the 1512 so I went in.....I was so impressed, I came back the next Day and compared the Martin to the GUILD What a total shock.....The Guild sounds like a much more expensive guitar and I like the " Bling" look Sold....I'm at home looking at my new Guild.....Funny I had Guilds in HS....I'm gonna check out a Starfire next
