Originally released in 1965, the Electric XII was designed from the ground up for performance and authentic Fender tone. Featuring dual split-coil pickups, a special 12-string hardtail bridge and a 3-position pickup selector, this jangly offset will definitely get attention onstage.
The traditional Alder body is typically well balanced and comfortable, as all Fender offsets are, and with a crisp 3-Tone Sunburst finish it looks real slick. It's super resonant and delivers a bell like high end, punchy mids and robust lows with flawless precision.
The Maple neck features a Pau Ferro fingerboard and a 9.5" radius for a superb modern playing action without any choking. With a C shape profile and 21 medium jumbo frets, it offers a really comfortable playing experience; its equally at home playing big chords or intricate picking work.
The split-coil Electric XII pickups were designed specifically for this guitar, and they have the sound that made Fender famous - crisp, clear and balanced. The 3-position switch lets you activate either pickup on its own or in tandem.
Well-rounded and perfect for a broad range of styles, the Electric XII is the standard for gigging musicians, with amazing quality and playability they are ready to hit the stage or studio at any time.
