Brian May’s Guild JF-6512/F-412 12-String

Brian used this guitar most notably during the 2005/06 Queen + Paul Rodgers Tour as his main 12-string acoustic guitar.

The guitar is likely a Guild F-412 model, based on the fact that it has maple sides. It could also be the JF-6512 if the guitar was made earlier than 2002. It’s essentially the same exact model, but F-412 was re-named the JF-65M-12 in the late 80s and was renamed back to F-412 in 2002.
