My new Strat XII arrived last week and the neck is different than spec'd on the web site. The neck radius is 9.5 vs 7.25 advertised and, the frets are huge not the vintage narrow that are advertised.

Other than that the guitar is light weight, 3-tone Sunburst is nicely done, neck is straight as an arrow, action is great and it intonated well when I set it up to my personal specs. Bridge pickup sounds great. Not sold on the other pup positions for a 12 string maybe they will grow on me over time. String spacing is a little tight for my fat fingers. Think it's a keeper at this price and it will do the job nicely.

Just browsing through old posts and thought I'd resurect this....
I've had my Strat XII (LPB) for 3 years now. I had found out about the discrepency in the specs (several threads in the forum had discussed it) but had a chance to play one at Guitar Showcase prior to my purchase. I actually liked the feel of it and obviously went ahead and bought it.
3 years later and no regrets. I've also found that all the pickups have their place and you can relly get some mellow tones and moods with the Neck or neck+mid pickups. It truely has it's place.

As of 2010, the Strat XII had been discontinued by Fender (it was a limited edition).

In that case I'm glad I bought mine when I did. Great axe.
