1969 Fender Villager – £949

NEW ARRIVAL  The Fender Villager was only produced between 1965 – 71, and is the 12 string equivalent to the Fender Newporter, with the hockey stick headstock used on the electric Fender XII. The quirky vibe of having an electric guitar neck and headstock on an acoustic guitar actually works, the neck feels very comfortable to play, and is really eye catching.  The guitar features a Spruce top, with Mahogany back and sides, and is X braced, so the guitar is very resonant with plenty of punch. It’s in good condition for a 51 year old guitar, just some lacquer checking on the body.
