For an under-the-pickguard repair, this is perfect!

What a beauty. How does Fender XII play compared to other 12 strings like a Ric?

This is the first 12 string I really have had a good play of, so I can't really compare.
When I strung this up again, I ended up playing it non-stop for an hour. Great resonance.
I still need to adjust the neck.

They play way better than a 330/360 Rickenbacker. Properly spaced strings and a 12 saddle bridge.
