The Fender Villager 12-String Acoustic Electric in Aged Natural finish with Bag.

Inspired by the iconic designs of Fender electric guitars, California Player acoustics evoke the west coast spirit of adventure and freedom, inviting musicians to explore their individual creativity and disrupt the status quo.

Crafted with an X-braced solid spruce top and sapele back and sides, the Villager(TM) 12-string features a non-cutaway Newporter auditorium body shape which produces a versatile voice that's both articulate and powerful while offering a comfortable feel for hours of inspiration. The nato neck is designed with an easy-to-play slim "C"-shaped profile featuring graphite reinforcement rods for stability, a 24.75" scale length for comfortable tension, and a 1960s-inspired "hockey stick" headstock for a distinctive look born from Fender's acoustic heritage.

Other notable details include vintage-style tuning machines for smooth, accurate tuning, a GraphTech(R) NuBone(R) nut and saddle for signature 12-string chime, and a Fishman(R) Flex preamp system that allows faithful reproduction of the guitar's natural sound when plugged into an amplifier or recording device. A deluxe gig bag is included.

Bold, eye-catching and unique, California Series instruments make no compromises balancing effortless playability, superior sound, and standout style for those who aspire to play something different.

I waited eagerly got this guitar because it looked like what I wanted, a medium sized 12-String with a nice Fender neck. It was a disappointment when I opened it up and tried it out. The tuners seem sub par and the fifth string (G) would not reach pitch. It just froze somewhere around F. Would not go further. In fact, all the tuners were lackluster and I fished around with a Snark for awhile before I realized it was to no avail. And the nut was unfinished, just sharp edges sticking out that were the worst I've seen in 50 years of guitar playing.. It needed filing to match the contour of the neck. And it is not that small its kinda clunky and I returned it. I would not recommend this guitar.
