I've been playing professionally for 60 years and always wanted a Guild 12 string acoustic. The price was always out of my range so I settled for an Ibanez. That has all changed now that Guild is producing the Westerly collection F-2512E. As soon as I picked it up and strummed it at my local Sam Ash store, I was amazed at the tone both plugged and unplugged, the good action, the quality of construction and especially the narrow fretboard providing ease in fingering. This guitar is simply wonderful at a reasonable price. I could not find one flaw in fit, finish and fret wires. I love this guitar and it is a great addition to my collection of Gibsons, Fenders, Rickenbackers and Gretsch. You'll sound like John Denver. Just buy it. You won't be sorry!!
