Thread: Specs for 1972 F312

    Specs for 1972 F312

    Hello,

    This is my first post on this forum. I have a 1972 F312 that I've decided to sell. I bought it from the original owner in 1976. It's in excellent condition and sounds beautiful so I think it will fetch a good price. Anyone who would be interested in this guitar would want to know its specs and something about its history, but I can't seem to find much. Any suggestions for where to find these specs? Also, any suggestions about where is the best place to sell vintage guitars?

    Thanks!

    Bill

    welcome to LTG, Bill.

    a 1972 F-312 is pretty hard to come by. you may find some serious interest here on this forum. for specs it should be the same as the F-212 of the same year, only 1 significant difference being the F-312 has rosewood back and sides (F-212 is mahogany back and sides). they have a 16-inch lower bout. and in 1972 would have the “mini jumbo” shape, and be made in Westerly, Rhode Island. make sure u are ready to part with her, finding another wouldnt be easy. good luck!

    Please post pics!!!! I also had a 1972 F312, sadly stolen from me in 1985. It had rosewood back and sides and 16” lower bout, chesterfield headstock...and it was pretty heavy. I know because I carried that thing everywhere, including walking 2 1/2 miles to school with it!

    I just posted several pics. I'm planning to sell it in the Bay Area where I live as I don't want to take any risks with shipping. Thanks!

    It must have been special to you if you still remember it so fondly all these years later. I've posted several pics. Enjoy!
