So they're ideal for any genre. Whatever your style, bring extraordinary 12-string sound into your playing.
The many options that the Electric XII gives you to help shape your sound keep on coming in a seemingly endless list. You've never had so much control. A master tonal control helps you dial in the exact sound you're looking for. A fully-adjustable 12-saddle hardtail bridge will let you set an exact, ideal intonation for your music. And pickup switching lets you flick from lead playing to rhythm in an instant. Play your way.
A guitar that you'll never want to put down. The Fender Electric XII 12-String has a wealth of features to ensure the best possible playing experience. First of all, the neck's modern "C"-shape profile fits comfortably into the palm of your fret-hand - meaning you can play on for long periods of time without suffering from cramp or strain.
Playing at the top of the fretboard is a breeze. The Electric XII's Jazzmaster-style body grants uninhibited access to the top of the scale - there'll be no bulky neck joint getting in your way while you're unleashing exhilarating solos at the high end. And a satin urethane finish on the back of the neck helps your hand to smoothly glide up and down it at high speed. Everything you need to perform with excellence.
Fenders simply aren't meant to look like this. And that's exactly what makes the Electric XII so special. Part of the lauded Alternate Reality series, it boasts an entirely distinctive aesthetic blending classic Fender style with new, eye-catching enhancements that make sure it stands out from the crowd. An iconic Jazzmaster body is contrasted with a surreal, hockey stick-like 12-string headstock. And a tortoiseshell pickguard completes the image with a touch of sparkle. This is a Fender - so you know it sounds great. A quick glance can tell you it looks awesome, too.
