Vintage Guild F112 Nt 12 String Guitar With Hsc. 1971

| Guild Guitar | 3 hours ago

 For Sale: One Vintage Guild F112 NT 12 string acoustic guitar with HSC. This one we rescued from the never to be played again pile…..which is one of my missions…..to rescue and bring to life these older vintage pieces. One of  the best luthiers in the southeast has reset the neck, repaired several cracks, 3 in the top and one in the back, installed a new bridge plate, pickguard, and a new Guild headstock symbol. The tuner bushings are new. Somewhere in it’s life a very nice rose was inlaid in the headstock. The guild headstock symbol is a bit off center. Action at 12th fret is 1/8th inch on Bottom E string. Yes there has been a lot of work done but it is now a solid guitar and retains that wonderful old Guild tone. Case is a newer TKL. I only ship to lower 48 states and internationally through the Global Shipping Program. Thanks for looking and good luck!

Nice deal here for someone looking for a solid player’s grade acoustic/electric. Early run 1992 Guild F30CE in players condition with no issues, made in Westerly, RI.

The neck is straight and it is currently set up with medium-low action and accommodates capo use with no problems or buzz issues. The active Fishman pre-amp sounds beautiful when amplified and has no issues. The included original hardshell case is in rough shape but will keep it safe in transit. The inside is in better shape than the outside. Two of it’s 5 latches are not working.

    1975 Guild Artist Award Jazz Guitar, Natural Finish

    | Guild Guitar | 21 hours ago

    Beautiful Guild Artist Award, 1975. Blonde, stunning spruce top over
    figured maple back and sides. Lovingly cared for in smoke-free home.
    Completely original with the exception of a vintage (original) Gibson
    Johnny Smith pickup professionally added, and controls (volume and tone)
    mounted on non-original (but era correct) Guild pickguard. No breaks,
    cracks, repairs or issues of any kind. Straight neck, plays like butter
    with low action and flat wound strings. Comes with original hard shell
    case.

    Body size at lower bout: 17″ Scale length: 25 1/2″
    Nut width: 1 10/16″

    Introduced as the Johnny Smith Award in 1956, Guild’s top of the line
    guitar was rechristened the Artist Award in 1961. Individually handmade
    by the most experienced builders at the shop, the Artist Award continued
    to sport appointments seen only on ultra-deluxe instruments of the 30’s
    and 40’s, including a full seven plies of binding on both the body and
    the peghead. The deep ebony fingerboard is trimmed with three plies of
    inner binding on the face, just like the old Epiphone Emperor, whose
    ornate split-block fingerboard inlay was continued in the Artist Award
    as well. Even the f-holes are triple bound.

    Player’s Perspective

    Music Store Live is proud to present Guild F-130RCE! The tonal balance and clarity of a well built acoustic guitar inspires musical ideas in a truly unique way. This F-130RCE is everything you could hope for in an acoustic guitar, and it sounds way better than it should, given the price. The tone is crisp and warm, the body projects well enough to fill a room with sound, and the feel is even and consistent up and down the neck. This is one of those guitars on which you can really “hear the wood” in the tone. Some acoustic guitars four times the price of this one can’t claim as much. The on-board pickup system amplifies these subtleties without sacrificing any dimensions of the tone. As this guitar ages, it’s going to mature tonally into an even richer, fuller sound. This is one of the best acoustic deals we’ve seen in a long time.

    Item Details

    This orchestra-style F-130RCE features a solid spruce top and scalloped spruce bracing. The rosewood back and sides create a richer, more complex sound. The neck is made of mahogany, and the fingerboard and bridge are rosewood. All of these great tonewoods make for a clear, balanced guitar that projects incredibly well. The 1 3/4 inch nut is wide enough for advanced fingerpickers, but will keep strummers happy as well. The Nu-Bone nut and saddle make for tuning stability and precision – you won’t get those annoying pops and clicks when tuning. The slim profile neck is comfortable everywhere and doesn’t get in the way of your playing. With the on-board Fishman Sonitone pickup, amplifying this guitar is easy. The single-cut allows for easy upper fret access. Other features include a 25 1/2″ scale length, vintage style open-back tuners, nickel hardware and black/cream/black purfling. This is a consistent, balanced acoustic guitar that could easily cost twice as much and will age wonderfully.

    Overall Condition

    This Guild F-130RCE is in mint condition with no nicks, scratches, or blemishes of any kind. 

    NOTE: This guitar comes with a MusicStoreLive 1 year warranty. The photos above are not of the actual instrument. Please feel free to call us toll free for an in hand description. 888.465.5037

    Meet the Team!

    Andy Kuzmin – Guitar Sales Specialist
    When MSL was still just a two-man operation, Andy worked the counter at our local UPS drop-off. One lonely day, we started chatting with Andy. One thing led to another, we got some drinks, things got hazy, and before we both knew what was happening, Andy woke up at MSL. Since then, he’s been nothing but open, friendly and responsive to our customers. His philosophy is simple – he’s a fellow player first and the guy selling you a guitar second. That rare musician in whom staggering technique and unadulterated humility coexist, Andy shreds prog-fusion style at bars and clubs around Burlington almost nightly.

    Brian Harris – Bass Guitar Sales Specialist
    Brian was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. As a teenager, he moved to New York City and quickly became immersed in the music scene by spending time with his dad and uncle, both horn players. When his father went on tour as lead trumpet player for Tower of Power, Brian became infatuated by the unmistakable, incredibly unique and infectiously booty shaking grooves of Rocco Prestia. He picked up a bass guitar at 14 and hasn’t been able to put it down since. Some other monumental influences have been James Jamerson, Jaco, Marcus Miller, the one and only Bootsy Collins and Stanley Clarke.

    Dylan Berno – Sales
    Dylan is the kind of guy who can turn a regulatory meeting into a barbeque. The average blood pressure at MSL has dropped considerably since he joined the team. He makes the long-hair-and-loafers thing look easy, and he’s all about the kind of guitar playing that makes you not mind the fact that you’re sweating. You can find Dylan around Burlington on a Friday night, bending fifths or eating pork off the grill.

    Paul Comegno – Head Luthier/ Guitar Tech
    We’ve all had the seizure-inducing experience of leaving our favorite guitar in the care of a tech who we know nothing about. Paul started experiencing this sort of thing when he was 15, so his reaction was simple: I’ll fix the damn thing myself. Since then, Paul has worked on thousands of guitars, completed the Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery and built quite a few instruments himself. All of his work reflects the same maddeningly precise attention to detail. If Paul’s worked on it, it plays and intonates perfectly. Paul plays around Burlington regularly with his danger-rock band Rough Francis.

    Dan Davine – Guitar Tech
    After seven years in Brooklyn as a professional drummer, guitarist and banjo player, Dan moved to Vermont and joined the MSL team. He’s been on plenty of tours with a whole array of bands, and he’s worked as a recording engineer at Mighty Toad Studios in Brooklyn. He’s got enough ears and musical intuition to help you find the perfect guitar, even from thousands of miles away. He’s a cheery presence in the office and has refreshingly unfussy musical taste – he’ll listen to and play just about anything.

    Ben Werlin – Managing Partner
    Ben studied music business at the University of Miami and met Jeff Santoro shortly after. The two quickly became business partners and started making things happen. They’d been working on projects together for eight years before the idea of MSL came into view as the sun set on Yosemite National Park one crisp fall evening. Yes, it actually happened that way. Ben and Jeff did some research, put a team together and started buying and selling their favorite things: guitars. A player of the Scofield/Anastasio/Krasno persuasion, Ben is on a mission is to help you find great tone. His springer spaniel Charlie is on a mission to harass all of the delivery people.

    Jeff Santoro – Partner/Director of Operations
    Hailing from the yonder hills of Saranac Lake, this bass player’s muse brought him to Burlington when he moved his band here and started a local record label. Shortly after, he met Ben Werlin, and the two developed a habit of entrepreneurial wizardry. The name Santoro derives from the Latin word “sanctus,” which means saint, and we can assure you that Jeff couldn’t have a more appropriate last name. He’s kind of like the tonal center of day-to-day office life: We’re constantly referring to Jeff, trying to remember where he is and leaning on him for help with more complicated things.

    Bob Wagner – Video Demos, Writer
    Imagine if the lovechild of Ray Charles and Carmen McRae was raised in New Orleans. This person could open for Bob Wagner. He moved up here from New Jersey a few years back and got a degree in jazz performance from Johnson State College. He fell in love with Vermont, so he stayed here and became a regular in the Burlington music scene. He has blues in his blood, he loves avocadoes, and he looks kind of like Van Gogh’s Apollonian brother. Derek Trucks, Jimmy Herring, Trey and David Gilmour continue to influence and inspire Bob – you’ve probably heard a few nods to all of them in some of his video demos. He’s been writing and performing like mad with everyone around town, which might be why he strolls in around noon most days.

    Al Teodosio – Writer
    After graduating with a degree in English and music, Al spent the next few years mumbling at his shoes in response to the semi-rhetorical question, “But what does one do with a degree in music and English?” As a full-time writer at MSL, he now answers this same question with vengeful aplomb. Few things compete with music and words for Al’s attention, but some of them include fresh tea, roasted garlic and the subtle mannerisms of waterfowl. (Have you seen the way a common mallard will scratch its face with its foot?) He digs the music of Ligeti, Bill Evans, Arvo Part, Meshuggah and Bucky Pizzarelli.

    Derek Virta – Shipping
    Derek started performing in Boston when he was 16, and he liked it enough to study jazz performance for a bit at The Hartt School with Jackie McLean. A handful of years later, he began touring and played everywhere from LA to Dresden with a number of Chicago-based bands. In a strange turn of events and in an effort to live a healthier lifestyle, he put the music gig on hold and got really into bike racing and kale lemonade. He recently came back to Vermont, and after several years away from “the business,” he’s happy to be involved with music again. Derek’s nonpartisan musical taste encompasses Om, Bill Evans, Neurosis and Charles Mingus.

    Nathan Steinbauer – Video Producer
    A long-time friend of tech Paul Comegno, Nate joined the team at the end of 2012. Nate has many things: a slow and relaxed gait, enchanting blue eyes, a love of walnuts and several pairs of homemade jean shorts. Turns out Nate also has over a decade of video experience and a degree from the Art Institute of Vancouver, so he knows his way around a camera better than most of us know our way around a fretboard. Nate doesn’t play guitar, but his taste in art is good enough that we let it slide: He digs the pictures of Ansel Adams, the music of Pink Floyd and The Coen Brothers’ films.

    Jay Morgan – Inventory Manager

    The cool uncle figure of the office, Jay Morgan excels where most musicians come up short: He’s organized, responsible and mature. In fact, he owns his own business that rents pre-pitched tents to music festivals. Jay manages the thousands of items in our inventory without getting distracted by things like the harmonic flexibility of the minor sixth chord. For 10 years, he’s been living in Vermont with his wife Cat, his daughter Calla, his cat Isis and his dogs Greta and
    Levon. (Yes, after Levon Helm.)

    Susan Lambert – Bookkeeper
    Susan Lambert has been singing since she was six, and she’s been staying a few rooms away from Brussel’s sprouts since she was five. She has a B.A. in Music Education from Johnson State College and has used her lovely voice with the Vermont Symphony Orchestra Chorus for 21 years. Classical and jazz are her favorite types of music, but you’d be hard pressed to find an album Susan would turn off. As our bookkeeper, she makes the numbers line up and ensures that nothing
    gets lost in the mix.

    Steve Wolfe – Sr. Software Engineer
    There’s a certain movie where “The Wolfe” solves problems. We thought that having our own Wolfe would be a good idea, so we went to a couple early-morning black tie parties and found one, complete with an Acura. Steve Wolfe leads our web development group and ensures that the IT brain of MusicStoreLive.com stays alert, robust, and equal parts creative and analytical. He’s a geek of all trades – software, computers, guitars, amplifiers, and pedals. The Wolfe is committed to making your online experience as seamless as possible, and if you have a problem, he’s committed to solving it.

    HEY DEREK AND ALL THE CREW,

    THE GUITAR IS BEATIFUL AND SOUNDS AWESOME. SO VERY LIGHT, PERFECT FOR ME!

    I CAN’T TELL YOU ALL HOW MUCH I APPRECIATE YOUR CARE, KINDNESS AND CONSIDERATION OF ME.

    NO WHERE ELSE IN THIS UNIVERSE CAN YOU FIND A MUSIC STORE WITH REAL PEOPLE WHO REALLY, REALLY CARE ABOUT THEIR CUSTOMERS HAPPINESS.  A PLACE WILLING TO GO THE DISTANCE, NO MATTER WHAT.  I HAVE NEVER FELT SUCH WARMTH AND FRIENDSHIP
    FROM A BUNCH OF MUSIC NUTS LIKE YOURSELVES. I AM INDEED PRIVILEGED AND BLESSED TO HAVE FOUND YOU GUYS. YOU HAVE TAKEN SUCH GRAND CARE OF ME. NO ONE ELSE HAS EVER DONE THAT FOR ME AND I HAVE SHOPPED A LOT OF PLACES IN PERSON AND ON THE WEB.

    YOU HAVE MADE ME FEEL VERY SPECIAL AND THAT’S WHAT OTHERS HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO DO.

    YOU GUYS ARE NO DOUBT THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS!

    I WON’T SHOP ANYWHERE ELSE FROM NOW ON.

    THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR FRIENDSHIP.

    VERY SINCERELY,

    DR. GEORGE LAMBROS

    “Ben and his team are the absolute BEST! These guys not only know about instruments, they actually know about a little thing called CUSTOMER SERVICE! These guys saved me $$$ on my new Fender Deluxe American Ash P-Bass, I will spare the details
    as if everyone knew the kind of deal you can get here, they would have to close up shop, and I’m not ready for that yet. I could NOT believe it… the more I kept digging, the more cool little things I discovered… I am actually still trying
    to find out where I’m getting screwed here… I GIVE UP! Keep up the awesome job! (at this point, I am going to forego the string offer here… it just wouldn’t be right). Thanks again!”

    The ES339 arrived.  

    It’s beautiful.  It looks brand spanking new. And plays really well.  I must admit I was nervous buying online.  I felt I was risking  a lot of money based on a “sales description”.  Your description
    of this guitar was conservative.  I appreciate that because it is in better shape than you described it.  Wow, is all I can say.  Thanks for the honesty and then some.

    I couldn’t be happier.  What a lovely guitar.  There really is a difference between a Custom Shop and normal Gibson production fit and finish quality.  

    Here’s a picture.  So please don’t worry, the guitar feels very secure in its new home.   FYI, that’s a Heritage 335 with Seth lovers and a Logan Tele with DeMarzio pups on a 5 way switch next to the 339. It’s
    in good comfortable company.

    Thanks for a good deal and I’ll look to you guys for my next purchase. 

    -Todd, Connecticut

    The Spruce PRS and I have become very good friends.  Thank you for the excellent service and communication.  It was a seamless purchase and I could not be happier.  The guitar arrived with exceptional packaging and in stunning
    condition.  I cannot emphasize adequately how well the guitar and case were prepared and packed for shipment.  THe guitar has a wonderful voice and a range of tone I have seldom seen in any guitar.  The piezo by itself is remarkable
    and emulates an acoustic very well, especially when linked to an acoustic amp using the second output jack.  The jazz tones are lush and round  with an overtone of the woody sound. It’s playability is superb and can scream if called
    for.  The weight is a bit disorienting at first.  Initially, it felt like a toy but time on the strings corrected that perception.  I am still amazed at the sounds that come out of that 5.4 lb instrument.  AS you can see
    in this photo, it has made friends with an old friend of mine, a 1965 Fender Princeton Reverb that has been with me for well over 20 years.  I just re-tubed it and upgraded the speaker as the original Jensen P10Q id not come with it although
    it is otherwise mint, so warm meets warm.  Thanks again, guys for the purchase and terrific support.  Here are the newlyweds.

    “What can I say.  MusicStoreLive ALWAYS has some great vintage stuff, but when I saw this one, it was all over!  I had sold one exactly like it to a collector, some years back, and had always regretted it.  When it comes to guitars,
    Ben at MusicStoreLive is someone who doesn’t just sell them, but loves and appreciates a fine instrument, and recognizes it’s unique qualities.  He was GREAT to deal with. I just can’t say enough about how professional
    and easy the transaction was. I actually consider Ben a friend now, and my wife and I really hope to get up to see him some time in the future!! You’ll LOVE dealing with MusicStoreLive!!!”

    “I was very skeptical about making a purchase online. These guys made it easy for me. They answered all my questions, maintained a professional attitude the entire time and they were more than willingly to work with me. The 2000 Warwick
    Thumb bass I purchased arrived last Thursday. It was expertly packaged and had a good set-up right out of the box. It is the last bass I will need to buy because it destroys everything else in my collection. I have worked with
    a lot of companies over the years and have never gotten the kind of service that I received from these guys.  I would highly recommend this company for anyone looking to buy a quality instrument.”

    Hi Ben,

    I’ve got the purple Rickenbacker bass today.  Everything is great.  Seems that he had a very gentle journey.  It was very well wrapped, no damages, no complains;-)

    The Rick has topped all my expectations.  Can’t stop playing it!

    It was me a pleasure to make this deal with you!

    Best wishes,

    Max

    Hi guys….thanks for offering up another great prs…my second singlecut prs purchase from you!

    -Jeff Thibeau

    This thing is the real sound-heaven on earth!

    Greetings from Germany, 

    The PRS – Al D arrived last Friday morning…everything´s in perfect condition.

    As you can see on the picture from my “living-room”,  I´m a “little bit” crazy in guitars,-

    but one thing I must say:

    it does´t matter if I use a Peavey, a Fender or a Mark IV-Amp

     this thing is the real  

    SOUND-HEAVEN ON EARTH.

    Thank you and best wishes!!!

    -Heiko Reifenberg

    Buying online can be very risky and one has to trust the honesty and integrity of the retailer….

    Hi, I’ve just received (as of yesterday) the white ’79 Rckenbacker you sold me (April 25/26). I’ve left feedback on ebay and would have liked to have said more if there’d been the space to do so. The bass sounds amazing. I’ve got a 4003 model
    which is only a few years old, so it’s interesting to compare the two. The sound of the older one is vastly superior. It’s a truly beautiful instrument.

    Buying online can be very risky and one has to trust the honesty and integrity of the retailer. Your description of the ’79 4001 was accurate; it was well photographed so I had a good idea of what I was buying. My anxiety was further allayed
    by the prompt and friendly emails from your salesperson, Paul. The most worrying time was when it was in customs in the UK!

    I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you. Thanks again from a delighted customer.

    -Joan Bimson

    I just recieved the Axe From Hell.

    Beautiful LP Custom in perfect conditions. Il love the frets.

    My Mesa rocket44 & me are already overheating. A new set off strings, and let’s get some r’n’roll.

    Thank you for your business.
