More about 2021 Carlos Lopez Masterbuilt Prestige Marauder/XII Doubleneck

Carlos Lopez’ Double Neck Marauder was inspired by the possibility of combining two of Lopez’ favorite guitars: The Electric XII and the Marauder, to create the Double Neck XII Marauder. The guitar was designed in collaboration with Paul Frank, who shares a very similar taste in guitars with Lopez. Speaking about his creation, Lopez said “Love the fact that the 12 string is on the top side, just how it should be.” All pickups on this guitar were designed and built by Curtis Novak, and according to Lopez “the color and feel of the creation just has to be experienced in person.” Designed to appeal to anyone who loves to think outside the box and can appreciate the mystique and obscure guitar such as the Marauder. This model will be featured in a March episode of Fender’s “Dream Factory” series.

This instrument is one-of-kind and was sold to Willcutt Guitar Shippe in Lexington, KY.
