It's probably possible. My grandfather turned a 12-string into a 6.

man, that wont be easy. you'll need special, hard to find saddles, and good luck getting a twelve-string nut to fit on a tiny strat. fender produced a twelve string strat, though, see if you can find one on Ebay, i think it was a limited time thing they had a year or two ago.

new neck, bridge, nut and new tuners, shouldnt be too hard though since fender primarily uses bolt on necks.

But installing most of it would cost enough that you should probably just buy a 12 string...

i doubt it, you could do the full conversion (assuming you do it all yourself) for maybe $500, you wont find a decent 12 string electric that cheap.

you could always just buy one that was made to be a 12 string i believe katana guitars do have one on their website

it would probably be easier and possibly cheaper just to buy a 12 string strat.

You'll need to Canabalize another guitar, or buy new parts

I recomed finding an old cheap 12 string electric, then swapping the neck and brigde out. This may or may not require drilling out some of your strat

I've seen a few people build 12 string teles here, www.telemodders.com

MIM Fender Telecaster
Art & Lutherie Cedar
1969 EKO Ranchero
G&L Tribute L2500

Yes it is possible. Take it to the GB+C.

Chances are that the neck swap won't work....more than likely won't fit in the pocket....

Just keep that in mind


in prettey sure that the neck is very close to being the same width and that it would fit with minimal routing.
