The Electric XII is the latest in Fender’s recent Alternate Reality series of guitars.
Fender fans must’ve been taken by surprise, as this particular 12-string design hasn’t been made since 1965. Famous players of the guitar include Jimmy Page, who used it on the immortal “Stairway to Heaven”.
Fender’s 1965 Electric XII makes a triumphant comeback. Get twice the fun with the Alternate Reality series new 12-string addition.
The original 1965 model with its hockey stick headstock, asymmetric solid-alder body and split-coil pickups forged the jangle of the ’60s. This original became a staple for folk-rockers everywhere and Fender has brought it back.
The latest model features dual split-coil pickups, a special 12-string hardtail bridge and a 3-position pickup selector. The split-coil Electric XII pickups were designed specifically for this guitar while the 3-position switch lets you use each on their own or in tandem.
The fully adjustable hardtail bridge sports 12 individual saddles, ensuring precise intonation. The maple neck’s “Modern C”-shaped profile works well for almost any playing style while rocking 22 medium-jumbo frets. The guitar comes in three distinct finishes – Lake Placid Blue, 3-colour Sunburst and Olympic White.
