Well, yes, I have to mention the Dean Boca but I warn you, it does have neck dive because it's a smaller body which makes it comfortable for playing but if you want to stop the neck dive you'll need a big fat leather strap with a non-slip under side or something to weight the body near the other end of the strap to compensate.

If you're lucky, you can get a Cozart 12 string electric off Ebay for around $100...the body quality is really good, the neck is passible. It has decent tuners and a surprisingly well cut nut. If you just wanna 12 string on 'those occasions', it fits the bill....here's mine:

Genesis3. That's a great deal. How's the neck and string spacing?

Daisy Rock made a 12-string that was pretty sweet. Nice pickups.

You just missed a clearance sale ($569) on the Italia Rimmini 12 at Hello Music. It is the closest thing to Rickenbacker you can buy. They have mini-humbuckers and are really a nice guitar.

Squier Venus XII. These were $1000 when they were new and were branded Squier because Coutney Love wanted them that way - and it's probably why they had a hard time selling them.
They're made in Japan, which isn't America but it's better then China or whatever low cost company makes a lot of the junk out there today.The quality isn't USA but is probably on par with the Japanese Gretsch guitars, which is pretty good. This one cost me $400.
The pickups in these were wound in the Duncan Custom Shop (because there were no pickups the Electric XII size at the time and production stopped before the pickups could be mass produced). The neck is bound and has a great shape to it.
I have a couple Rickenbacker 12 strings but these are very cool guitars for short money:
