    1966 Fender Electric XII Sunburst Solid Body Electric Guitar, Serial #172650.
    Sunburst Fender Electric XII - Like Jimmy Page used on Stairway to Heaven. This could have possible been a NAMM show or a salesman sample. The neck date is 12 APR 66 B. The pots date to the 31st week of 1966 and the pickups are dated 8-3-60. There is a '50's Sprague bumble bee cap that is non-original but appears to be an old addition. ES is stamped in the body, under the pickguard. Both the neck and the body have "SPECIAL" stamped in the wood on the back of the headstock and below the neck plate. This guitar is all original and shows moderate wear overall. Chips and dings are present and primarily on the edge of the body. Buckle rash/worming and arm wear are also present. 8.4lbs. Hard case included. Condition: Good.

    From Fester's Lesters & Strats Collection.
