Now it's time for a Squier CV Electric XII, there is no excuse since there is a fitting bridge in production now!

Whoa, interested in pricing vs vintage.

ok. im sorry but now it's on here, i can say this.

one of my mates in a local guitar shop hinted this was coming but i wasnt aloud to say. he knew i loved electric xii's and simply said "keep an eye out in the next few months for the return of the hockey stick"

now we know a price. im gonna be saving.

Sweet, that's one of this forum's most tenacious dreams come true. First it was the Squier Bass VI and now this. I can't wait for the months to come when no one gives Fender shit for anything :D

It's interesting when you see features such as the bridge go into production by Fender.
If I'm not mistaken, I believe it was Faction guitars that came up with the metal surround for the gotoh 12 string bridge.
It's cool that this forum itself is having a direct influence on fender.

So happy about this, been making offer on vintage ones for months with no luck but this is affordable! brilliant.

Now to decide which colour... :fp:
