1965 FenderElectric XII – Lake Placid Blue

This 1965 Fender Electric XII is simply stunning in its original factory Lake Placid Blue custom color finish! The Electric XII was one of the last projects Leo Fender designed with the company, and his fully initiation capable 12-string bridge is still preferred 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 particular example has the added “wow” factor being finished in a custom color, as these are most commonly Sunburst. This guitar at one point had different tuners installed, but vintage style Kluson tuners are currently installed that almost completely cover the extra holes.
