Guitar Player reviewed our reissued Villager 12-String in its May issue. Originally introduced by Fender in 1965, the Villager is recognizable by its hockey stick headstock.
“The new Villager is a sweet looking guitar with its gloss finish and neatly applied binding,” writes reviewer Art Thompson of the instrument’s design. “A tasteful rosette, gold pickguard, and black dotted bridge pins round out the cosmetics package.”
Thompson continues to break down the rest of the Villager’s specs, features, tone, etcetera, concluding that “The Villager provides a high level of enjoyment and has enough original-style elements to make you feel like your’e experiencing a bit of Fender’s clolorful past. It has also been refined and improved in very smart ways to suit the needs of modern players. Anyone seeking a gig-worthy 12-string for a very reasonable sum should give it a shot.”
So there you have it…
