Description

We’re all in love with this 1966 Fender Electric XII in Candy Apple Red and totally original except for replaced CTS pots (the originals pots are in the case). The finish has uniformly aged into a gorgeous reddish orange metallic color that looks absolutely awesome. A peek inside the control cavity will show you the original Candy Apple Red.

The guitar is factory stamped “SPECIAL” on the back of the headstock and on the neck heel, indicating the guitar was designated for a specific purpose—possibly for the 1966 NAMM show or it may have been a custom item made for a major player, but definitely a factory stamp.

Nut width of 1 5/8 inches. Scale length of 25 1/2 inches. Neck depth is 13/16 inches at the first fret and 15/16 inches at the twelfth fret. 21 frets on a bound Rosewood fingerboard. Original split-coil pickups with newer CTS pots as previously mentioned. Original F-stamped tuners. Original nickel plated bridge with 12, count ’em 12, saddles so each string can be properly intonated.

If you’re a fan of vintage Fender guitars and 12 strings in general, this is a once-in-a-lifetime guitar at a price that won’t require a second mortgage. This ’66 Electric XII would be a wonderful addition to any Fender collection. Come and get it! You’ll be glad you did.
