    Thanks man, It's a killer amp. It's apparently some kind of prototype it doesn't have independent masters but instead a 'comp drive' and one master.

    Your post got me to thinking. When did Guild produce its first 12-string, either acoustic or electric?
    Pretty sure Hans dated the F212 introduction at '64, in time for the Yardbirds to use it on "Heart Full of soul", can't remember if that was their first 12-er though, and can't recall seeing a Starfire 12-er dated before '66.
    In fact, thinking about it, that may be why Mark Dronge's gift of an SF-XII to the Beatles was in '66, seem to recall it was a brand new offering at the time.
    I know the answers are in Hans' book, I just don't have it here.
    Oh yeah, welcome aboard, Guilty!

    I was doing to ask the same thing. Great looking guitar (& amp).

    Depends on who was shaping the necks that day.

    I finally found time to measure the nut width. It's 43mm or 1.69 inch at the 12th fret it's 52 mm or 2.04 inch
    If more measurements are interesting please let me know.

    I had a green one, 1967. It was my first good guitar. Had to sell in hard times and still regret it. Enjoy.
