    NOTES:

  • Purchased as a replacement for the Fender 12 stolen in July 1999. Strung up with 10 strings instead of 12 -- the bottom 2 weren't doubled up. Replaced by the Deimel 12-string in 2006, Lee seems to have returned to the Fender. Not sure specifically when the transition occurred.
  • Sunburst body
  • 12-string neck
  • 3 jazz-style pickups
  • Rosewood fretboard
  • Tortoise shell pickguard
  • 1 toggle switch
  • 2 knobs
  • Tuning written on tape on body.
  • Listed as "12ST" on 2000 set lists. Listed as "Fender 12" on 2004 sets.
