Thread: Ngd.....'66 212

    There something about a hog 12 string that just keeps me coming back.

    I think that is why I've kept my Ibanez so long. The F-212 and Ibanez may not be up to par with the F-412 or F-512's but that F-212 is a really special guitar to me
    NH 2011 D-40 Standard, 2014 Orpheum 000-12 Fret SH Hog, 2010 F-412, 2010 F-512.

    Westerly Series OM-140 SB

    Ibanez V-302

    Madeira A-2...(don't laugh!)

    Most of the pain associated with my playing comes from having to listen to me. frono

    Awesome description, and I agree. That is one gorgeous honey-colored soundboard.

    Yup, that would make it an F-212 from 1964, which is what I expected after looking at the photo.

    Thanks.....

    Anything else I should know about it? Just curious. I noticed that the neck radius is pretty flat. Is that common? Or do you think it may have been modified some?

    I would suspect a flat fingerboard on an F-212 from that particular period. If it's slightly rounded there is a chance that the fingerboard has been modified from flat! No big deal really; not everybody likes a flat fingerboard!

    Fingerboard is very flat. Sorry, I meant to refer to the shape of the neck not being a round "C" but more of a flat oval.

    Would need to hold the guitar in my hands to comment on that! You could try to make a photo, but I'm not sure it will show!

    I love that vintage guitar. Still not catastrophically expensive, but old enough to have that patina. I would much rather have one of those than brand new.

    I’ve noticed that even after Guild began making their 12-strings with radiused fretboards, they still put flat saddles in ‘em, at least for some period of time, two or three years?

    My ‘66 F212XL: came with a flat fingerboard / flat saddle; my ‘69 F212: came with a radiused fingerboard / flat saddle.

    These both came with the early style bridges, with “through-saddles”; I.e.: the slot runs through the length of the raised portion of the bridge.

    Curious.
