We rescued this well-loved example of a Guild 12-string from a seller whose home was filled with automobile parts and the carcasses of old power tools. A man of few words, he did allow that he had taken it in on a trade for a snowblower with the intention of learning to play, but had soon abandoned the attempt (presumably to work on antique cars) and put the guitar aside. At the time of our acquisition the guitar was, to put it mildly, a bit of a mess: a center-seam split on top, the plastic facing on the top of the headstock missing, a lifting bridge, plus various dings and other signs of neglect. A few months in the Aardvark shop, however, has worked wonders. The guitar now plays easily (gotta love the Guild dual trussrod system!) and sounds great, with lots of shimmer and bottom-end rumble. Two-piece spruce top, mahogany back and sides, ebony fingerboard and bridge. The top split was repaired by Aardvark’s very own in-house luthier, Steve, with grafted wood. Not the prettiest guitar in the Aardvark stable, or the most pristine, but this is one fine-sounding 12-string small jumbo. SOLD!
