With its authentic "hockey stick" headstock from the 1960s, the Villager™ 12-String joins the ranks of Fender's California Player series acoustics. Originally introduced in 1965, today's Villager 12-String has been updated for the modern player's needs with a gloss black finish, comfortable cutaway Newporter shape and high-quality Fishman® electronics. Acoustically, this solid spruce-topped guitar offers all the chiming resonance you expect from a great 12-string.
The Villager 12-String features optimized bracing for reduced mass and superior resonance, a Graph Tech® NuBone® nut and saddle for greater sustain and a Fishman preamp system that makes it easy to plug in without sacrificing the guitar's natural sound. The 24.75” scale gives this instrument a slightly slinkier feel, making it easier to wrangle all 12 strings simultaneously. The lightweight mahogany neck features a comfortable, easy-to-play, slim-taper "C"-shaped profile suitable for any playing style, and its walnut fingerboard and bridge further augment this instrument's vibrant tone.
With superb playability, distinctive looks and unmistakable Fender vibe, the Villager 12-String is an instrument for a new generation of fearless players.
