Up for grabs is a very nice 1983 Guild D212 Acoustic 12 string.

This guitar was made in the US at the Guild Factory in Westerly Rhode Island and the serial number is AA 101185

I purchased this guitar two years ago as I was playing a regular solo gig and I wanted a nice acoustic 12 string to properly play the Beatles, Byrds, and the Tom Petty tunes I covered in my sets that just didn’t sound as good with my Gibson J200.

I had a brand new LR Baggs Anthem PU professionally installed, and it sounds great through my Bose L1 Pro 8 PA.

One of the original tuners was slipping so I had a set of 205C 12 Grover tuners installed. They are the exact same footprint as the original Guild tuners so there were no modifications done to the guitar. I have the original tuners in the original Guild case that comes with the guitar.

The guitar is in good condition. It has its share of small light scratches and dings but nothing major. It has some crazing but not too bad. There is nothing structurally wrong with the guitar, it’s just minor cosmetic issues. Due to the tobacco sunburst, you really don’t see the scratches unless you’re up close looking for them. See all the photos.

The frets are original and have some wear at the first two frets but nothing that causes intonation problems or buzzing.

When I played my solo gig, I tuned the guitar to D as it made it easier to sing some higher pitched tunes, Neil Young’s Tell Me Why being one of them and for other tunes, I would play with a capo on the second fret.

The guitar comes with an original Guild case that was with the guitar when I purchased it. I don’t know if its original to the guitar but it is in very good condition with no issues.

These early 80’s made in the US Guild guitars are very desirable. They have a nice jangly chime and even Tom Petty played an 82 D212 in concert- it was his go to acoustic 12 string in the 90’s and you can see him playing George’s great Beatles tune I Need You in the concert for George film.

Check out the video I made to see how she sounds!
This D212 which I’m selling for $1,249 includes a brand-new set of Grover Tuners and an LR Bags Anthem pickup system. Just those two items alone cost over $500 new including installation. This is a great price on an iconic Guild 12 String USA made!

Please check out this YouTube video to see how she sounds:
