More about Villager™ Pro 12-String Bolt-On

The Fender Acoustic Custom Shop Pro series presents the shimmering sound and rich style of the Villager 12-String Bolt-On, which is reminiscent of the ’60s-era original and is finely crafted with a solid Sitka spruce top and mahogany back and sides, and a handsome Natural gloss nitro lacquer finish.

Special features include scalloped and forward-shifted red spruce “X” bracing, elegant aged white body binding with wood checkerboard rosette and purfling, and a specially designed bolt-on maple neck with “C”-shaped profile and distinctive vintage Villager 12-string "hockey stick" headstock.

Other features include rosewood fingerboard with 10”-radius and 20 vintage-style frets, three-ply gold pickguard, bone nut, vintage-style Fender “Viking” rosewood bridge with compensated bone saddle and bridge pins, engraved Fender “shield” neck plate, vintage-style tuners, and Fishman® Matrix™ Infinity pickup/preamp system for peerless amplified performance. Includes deluxe hard-shell case, deluxe Fender leather strap and certificate of authenticity.
