Fender Electric XII/Maverick Control Plate

Post by BOA KTF » Tue Sep 22, 2020 2:56 pm

Any one have any leads on 60s style Fender XII/Maverick control plate? Both current models have the same or close enough plates but I can’t seem to find a source for this dang “v” shaped control panel. Any help is greatly appreciated!

I know there are templates available- are you able to make your own, or are you just looking to buy one pre-made?

I was hoping to find one for purchase but at this point making one is looking like my only option

I bought a NOS one from Angela instruments probably 12+ years ago, so that supply has likely run out.

Before I moved the part on, I scanned it and traced it:

sometimes, this ebay seller takes XIIs apart....could be worth messaging him to see if he has one left, as he took apart two XIIs in the past 3 months or so:

Looks like these are sold out right now but I'm sure there will be more in stock eventually.

They are pretty close to the original.

The Butcher had a victim up a couple weeks ago. The control plate, knobs, and full wiring harness w/pickup switch went for over $200 bucks. Which I thought was ridiculous at the time but now that I’ve gone through an exhaustive search kind of wish I had bid lol. I ended up taking the plate off my dad’s 65’ and gave it to a machinist friend who’s replicating it out of polished stainless steel for me. I’ll post a pic when I get it in!
