012: basic entry model
112J: standard model
112V: model with (better) Alnico V pickups (+ coil tap function) and improved hardware
112VM: same as the 112V but with a maple wood finish?

So the best version is the 112V (or 112VM if you like the colours better).

(close beat me to it)

Amp: Fender Mustang I v2 (2015)
