Well I didnt even know these existed. ESP Jazzmaster clone, 12-string. 25.5" scale.
Coil Splitting! String Thru Body! I've owned 2 semi-hollow electric 12-strings and this blows them away in playability and tone.
This thing is SO EASY to play standing up, which was the whole point of me getting an electric 12.
3rd Time's A Charm..

I got a HELL OF A DEAL on this guitar on eBay, new for only $350!! Regular price is $700 I believe
I'm sure if this was made by Fender they'd be $1299 or $1499.

Heres the pics, my cellphone cam sucks so I will use the eBay photos. BTW there is a small chip in the neck pocket in the stock photos, but not on my guitar. So I was extremely pleased.

Congrats! Very cool. I would consider it more a Jazzmaster given the scale length.

I'm glad they made the HB's splittable because the entire point of XII's is to get jang-banged with the treble

For me, it's more like a 12 string Jagmaster.
Strat-like bridge, humbuckers, no rhythm circuit. Jagmaster. Sorry, I'm a pedant.

Also: that headstock. It's a harpoon!

That headstock shape is more aesthetically pleasing than the Fender XII headstock shape. It's just not what people are used to.

Yeah, I'm fine with it... but I play a Schecter Hellcat VI, which is similar and kinda worse Razz

It has completely straight string pull and no goofy string bar/holder.

I dig the headstock, it's that awful font I don't like.

Bad font is bad font.

Uggo font actually increases sustain and makes the playability much better overall.

This guitar is so, so sweet plays like a dream, finally found an electric 12-string I can get on with. Those semi-hollow ones blow. This one reigns supreme.
