Thread: NGD...on the G312th day of Christmas...

  1. #1

    NGD...on the G312th day of Christmas...

    the last couple weeks have been among the most busy and insane of my entire life. among the flurry of all the activity, this beautiful 1980 Guild 312 *and a USA made Ovation (from around the same time period)
    wound up in my possesion earlier today. no insane figuring but the back is tight and dark India rosewood.
    rough pics is all I have for now, but this thing is nice! ill have to get back to it soon for a re-string and proper test drive.

    wow, what a score. other than the F312, this is the only other 12er I would consider buying. Just too many strings for a guy like me, but sure look awesome and powerful. no doubt a strumming machine.
