|The Fender Villager 12-String Returns
It’s like the summer of ’65 all over again. That’s because Fender has just resurrected its classic Villager acoustic guitar, once again available and once again bringing you lush 12-string sound.
The new Villager 12-string dreadnought harkens back to its waves-and-rays Southern California predecessor of 1965 right down to its distinctive “hockey stick” headstock. But there are a few modern appointments too—most notably the new Villager’s scalloped X bracing and dual-action truss rod inside and the Fishman® Isys III pickup/preamp system on the upper bout.
It’s a Fender classic updated for today. And by the way, the Villager comes set up with a shiny new set of Fender Duratone coated strings, which are now standard issue for all Fender acoustic guitars.
At right, the Fender Villager 12-string. Note the classic “hockey stick” headstock and Fishman® electronics.
