One of Guild’s rarest models returns in this one-off Special Run from the brand’s California facility. 

Constructed with an AAA-grade Sitka spruce top, scalloped Adirondack spruce bracing, mother-of-pearl V-block inlays, and rosewood back and sides, this Special Run D-512E 12-string is the first of its kind to be made in Guild’s California facility and one of only a few in the company’s 68 years of production. 

The Special Run D-512E exhibits beautiful balance and a natural compression, sounding at once sweet and rich, yet controlled and very easy to play. The preinstalled LR Baggs Anthem series unit features both a hidden pickup and a microphone, which can be blended or selected independently for additional tonal variation when plugging in.
