1965 FenderElectric XII – Candy Apple Red

If you’re looking for that 12-string jangle in Fender form, this beautiful 1965 Fender Electric XII in Candy Apple Red is for you! The Electric XII was one of the last projects Leo Fender designed with the company, and his fully intonation-capable 12-string bridge is still revered for its accuracy and ease of use. This is the perfect guitar for a clean, crisp 12-string twang, both in the studio and on stage! This guitar at one point had different tuners installed, with what appeared to be Kluson’s based on the holes, but period-correct “F” tuners are currently on the guitar.
