I have my doubts about this guitar, but who knows, might be worth it.

LoL at that headstock. I can't picture a 12-string based on general Fender construction. They make great guitars but I would not think the fretboard mechanics and an Alder body would make this a great guitar.

I dunno, people say 12-string and I think Martin or Gibson

I saw one of these hanging on the wall at a local store, it seemed alright but I didn't check it out for very long. Electric 12 string is a heck of a sound though smile.gif

At least the Headstock isn't as bad as this original 1966 Fender XII!!!

It was often referred to as a 'Hockey Stick' headstock!

The original headstock looks like it's trying to slither away.

Chris Guitars has a pair of them. One from 2006 that's on hold and one from 1986 that isn't and is US$750.

http://www.chrisguitars.com/fender.html

Also, Fender uses the same headstock design for their John 5 Signature J5 Tele's. Makes some more room for the behind the nut bends.
