Fender Alternate Reality Electric XII Olympic White 2019
Fender Alternate Reality Electric XII, olympic white, made in Mex 2019. This one just arrived and reliably turns heads multiple times per day in the shop. The Electric XII launched originally in the 1960s, but for many moons it was out of production; these Alt Reality were a welcome return to daylight. The hardware is sturdy: great bridge, good tuners, sensible string tree... all that means it stays in tune nicely, so you're not constantly stopping to wrestle it back into tune. The white/pao/tort combo looks super classy; it hits the classic curves of the offset body just right. Twice the strings, twice as nice.
