Fender Stratocaster 12 String 1996/1997 Ex James Dean Bradfield
Here is something rather special … exclusively offered through The Music Deli with authentication from James himself.
This fabulous electric 12 string was used extensively in the studio by James and was featured on the songs ‘3 Ways To See Despair’ on the 2013 release ‘Rewind The Film’ and ‘The Year of Purification,’ and ‘So Why So Sad’ on ‘Know Your Enemy’ amongst others.
The guitar comes with a hard case as pictured and as it was never used on tour – it is in very good to excellent condition with loads of fret life.
The only modification is strap locks being fitted.
Here is some technical information taken from the Fender website;
With its jangly sound and classic contours, the Fender Made in Japan Stratocaster XII pays homage to the revered original 1965 Fender Electric XII. Featuring Stratocaster standard single-coil pickups, a rosewood fingerboard, vintage-style tuners and a 12-string hard-tail bridge, the Fender Stratocaster XII has Fender tone and style to spare.
