Pretty good for my first 12 string
Lahm, 21.01.2018
Not bad over all for a budget model. Nice rounded sound and a good pickup with a handy low end/bass control. Pretty chunky neck which takes some getting used to (I've played 12s with thinner necks than this one). Lovely jumbo body and great looking guitar. 12 strings are Gretch's speciality and for the price this isn't a bad one to start with... I may not hang on to this one for very long as I'm sure there are much nicer ones but its serving a purpose for the time being before I upgrade. Pretty happy with this one.

Sensational price / performance ratio
psoulstar161, 06.04.2018
I needed a cheap 12 string for unplugged shows, just to have a little bit more sound variations and variety. Typical 12 string songs, which one has as such in the ear, come on 6 strings but always somehow mau.

The processing of the guitar is top class! A nice matte finish, a not too broad fingerboard, a rather flat neck, which despite the wider fingerboard not too deep, like a beating, in the palm and a really perfect position of the strings make the guitar very easy and comfortable to play. Overall, all components make a high-quality impression. Tuners keep the mood very good.

The wood used is rather simple, which does not mean that it is not appealing. But it is not a flametop! That is not to be expected with the price and thus no minus point. Due to the matte finish, the wood is still very attractive.

The sound: it jingles and jiggles, it's just such a pleasure. The guitar shines, is loud, rather bright sounding and has something of bell. Furthermore, it immediately stands out that, if you have played the guitar for a few minutes and brought it to life, the quite large dynamic range. Smallest stop position change can be clearly heard, soft or hard strumming are implemented accordingly. But for me the biggest plus is that the guitar has an unbelievable power of separation. Every sound is clearly audible and locatable. No Mullm or washed-out sound. Very good! This, together with the very good playability even at higher altitudes, allows for easy soloing, without feeling that you are struggling with the guitar. Here is a clear difference to cheap alternatives.

The Fishman Sonitone is a proven pickup system that works fine here. Sure, there are next to a piezo natural sounding systems, but also pay attention to the price.

When you consider that you usually need a 12string only for a few songs in the set, it is clear that you do not want to invest huge sums of money here. Guild offers a sensational price / performance ratio.
