In Gear4music they were announced for April. When the date is coming, they change it. They've done it several times. I think it's a trick to get preorders.

I am definitely getting one of the XIIs. I hear they have changed the bridge? From the photos it looks the same set up as the 12 string strat?

It’s a gotoh bridge. Good design. These will probably be good. But it’ll probably come down to how the neck feels. That’s the most different part from Og.

I've just bought a second hand italia Rimini 12 to reduce the XII gas. It's pretty cool, I'm surprised. How will it compare to the fender? :whistle:

i had one of those for a few years. no complaints about it (other than it wasn't a Ric).
Buying another guitar will not make me a better guitar player.

I dig that Italia Rimini 12. The Alternate Reality XII looks amazing too. Are those not on sale yet or sold out of presale?

Chicago Music Exchange tells me Fender is now giving an ETA of July 25.

They are available for preorder.

Does anybody have a link to The XII on CME? I’ve searched and can’t find it.

They had a listing but took it down for some reason. I just contacted them directly through email.

I've noticed a lot of the listings, on many stores, guitar center, CME, etc. disappeared some time ago. Even Fender took its alt reality xii page down, although I don't remember if they were selling or not at the time. I have no idea how this stuff works but perhaps they ran out of pre order or demand was just too high. I'm glad I swooped one early!
