Danelectro has announced a reissue of its ‘66-12 12-string electric guitar.

The semi-hollow '66-12 features a double cutaway, reverse alder body with a "German carved" bevelled edge design and a C shape, bolt-on maple neck with a 22-fret, pau ferro fingerboard.

Sonically, the '66-12 comes packing a coil-tapped dual Lipstick humbucker in the bridge and a full range single coil pickup with large housing angled at the neck. These are controlled by chrome master volume and master tone controls with a "D" motif and a 3-way selector switch.

Vintage style die-cast machine heads, a fully adjustable bridge with a precision-cut 12 slot graphite nut, a black or white 2-ply scratchplate and f-hole binding also come standard on the guitar.

The Danelectro ‘66-12 12-string guitar is available now - in 3 Tone Burst or Black finishes - for $899.
