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 12 String

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.
