1972 Guild F-612 Acoustic 12-String Guitar
This guitar is super rare and probably the only one for sale right now.
THIS GUITAR IS BEING SOLD AS-IS AND IS ALMOST UNPLAYABLE PAST THE FIRST FEW FRETS DUE TO THE HIGH ACTION. IT NEEDS A GREAT AMOUNT OF WORK DONE INCLUDING THE FOLLOWING:
- neck reset (an expert examined the guitar and said this will be very difficult for him to do, if even possible, due to the neck heel being too thin to work with)- numerous cracks (major crack by the pickguard at both ends of the soundhole as seen in the pictures), but there doesn't appear to be any cracks in the body on the back or sides- needs new pickguard- the bridge has some cracks in it, but I was told that it can be repaired and the bridge doesn't need to be replaced- 2 back braces are loose- needs new bridge plate
I was given an estimate of $1600 for these repairs by a reputable guitar store as well as a timeframe of over a year.
OTHER THINGS TO NOTE ABOUT THIS GUITAR:
-There are numerous cracks in the finish.-There is a big crack in the back of the headstock (as seen in the pictures).-The body under the bridge is bellied up.-The saddle has been shaved down to a point where it basically can't be shaved anymore.
I hope I'm not missing anything, but please feel free to ask any questions.
The case is also included, but as seen in the pictures, is in rough shape cosmetically and doesn't include the key for the lock.
ONCE AGAIN, PLEASE UNDERSTAND THIS GUITAR NEEDS REPAIRS AND IS BEING SOLD AS IS.
