James played a Fender Electric XII (12-String) guitar with a rosewood dot inlay neck for the song "Try Try Try" during the final Smashing Pumpkins tour in 2000. Dot inlays (opposed to block inlays) were only used from 1965 to mid-1966 for this model of guitar. The color appears to be Lake Placid Blue that has aged over time (yellowed) into an interesting green color common for older models.

The Fender Electric XII was Fender's first attempt at an Electric 12-String Guitar, it was produced from 1965-1969 and then discontinued.
