I ordered one of these from Sweetwater today. $900 for a MIJ Fender 12 string is very reasonable and I'm thinking they won't be available long. Sweetwater will send pictures of my guitar today or tomorrow and I'll post one or two.

I had one and sold it. Great guitar but just wasn't using it.

Yeah baby! Killer! Now go learn some Birds tunes!

Peegoo I wanted one of these for years and the stars never aligned. A guitar would come up locally at a good price and I had no $$ or I had $$ and found no reasonably priced guitars.

I bought a brand new Cozart 12 on ebay for $137.00 a few years back. It's a Strat XII knock off. I put a set of Fender vintage noiseless PUs in it I had laying around, set it up and wow. I love it. The neck is a touch wider than the Fender and that's OK it being a 12er.

Strat 12 KO on the cheap. For as much as I play it, it's perfect.

I had one of those Strat XII's a few years ago. It was Lake Placid Blue with matching headstock. I sold it off thinking I didn't need it (I have a Rick 660-12 and a Gretsch 6122-12 Country Gentleman). I still miss it, though.

I just might have to get one of these new ones as the price is fair and they won't last long. Love that CIJ quality!

+1 on the LPB Strat XII and I held on to mine!
I bought mine new in 2005 and I love the CIJ quality, too! The latest released XII's only come in 3TB or White..
I was hoping to find one in person just for comparison and see what's the difference between CIJ vs MIJ...

It seems like I read somewhere that there are some minor differences between the latest release of XII's and earlier ones but I don't recall what they are. But build quality is still 1st rate.

Had an older MIJ Fender 12 string. Great guitar, but used it for a trade-in during a purchase seeing that I wasn't doing any tunes requiring a 12 string.
