Body: the spruce top has some checking in the lacquer that is typical of a vintage guitar, however the back and sides show very little of this; there are some scuff marks, scratches, dings, and small chips that can be found in the lacquer on the top, back, and sides (most noticeably near the binding along the treble side edge of the top), however structurally there are not cracks or holes in the wood and the binding is all intact; a dark spot can be seen on the bass side of the body and the soundboard has a "ripple" at the treble side of the bridge, perhaps due to the bridge slightly lifting off the soundboard; the treble side of the soundhole has some heavy wear

Neck, Fretboard, and Headstock: the fretboard looks virtualy flawless; the back of the neck has some small dings and indentations that are very shallow and should not affect comfort or playability, plus there are some cracks in the lacquer on the neck heel; the fretboard binding has some chipping in the lacquer; the front, back, and side of the headstock show some light scuff marks and scratches, plus the very end edge of the headstock has some small dings

Action and Playability: the bridge is slightly lifting off the soundboard, however the neck is straight and the action is about medium; the truss rod functions properly

Frets: the mid to lower frets have some small grooves in them,however there is no fret out at this time

Hardware: the tuners and the output jack/bottom strap hook look fantastic, but the strap hook on the neck heel has some obvious wear in the finish

Electronics: the original electronics have been replaced; the preamp installed in this guitar right now does work, however it has a tendency to drain the battery down

Includes: 12-sting acoustic-electric guitar and original hardshell case (case not pictured)

Made in America, 1984, this Guild 12-string is the ultimate acoustic-electric!  Not only do you get the distinct tones of a 12-string, but the F45-CE has a 24-fret fingerboard and a Florentine cutaway giving you access to those higher frets, plus it has a pickup installed to really give you the means to project your sound (this beauty sounds amazing unplugged also!). This Guild is 34 years old and shows some of the wear and tear typical of a vintage guitar as well as some issues typical of a used 12-string guitar.  Like a lot of vintage guitars there is some checking in the lacquer, mostly just on the top; and due to the tension from having 12 strings as well as a 24-fret fingerboard, there is some slight lifting of the bridge off the soundboard, however the neck is straight and the action is a bought medium.  The mid to lower frets have some small grooves, however there is no fret out at this time when played.  Including the original hardshell case, this Guild is a true players guitar!
