        As stated all is well---except I haven't been able to find a case for the "villager" guitar.

            Comments about Fender Villager SCE Solid Top 12-String Acoustic Electric Guitar:

            I am not a big fan of ordering guitars sight unseen. However I have smaller hands and after some research I found this model to have the narrowest neck in the price range. I took the chance and I have to admit I am quite pleased.

            I spent a couple of hours playing around with tunings until I settled on a half step down which sounded the best on the one I received, "jangly" yet smooth. Standard tuning was just a touch too sharp for my taste.

            The neck is smooth, easy to play, feels just like my Strat and Tele and this guitar can be loud if I get to it.

                Comments about Fender Villager SCE Solid Top 12-String Acoustic Electric Guitar:

                My neighbor had trouble getting his Villager in tune, so I brought it home for a look. Just a weak battery in the tuner. So I used the opportunity to compare his Villager to my Applause AE35. Both have that beautiful jangly high end. The Villager has a stronger bottom end than the Applause with its lychrachord back, especially plugged in. Both have reasonable action for a 12 string, though both will give you calluses in a matter of minutes. Overall I liked the Villager for tone, and the Applause for general industuctability. I consider the Villager a reasonable, though not amazing, value in a 12 string. So I would definitely consider the Villager alongside the slightly cheaper Applause and slightly more expensive Seagull (acoustic electric).

                Comments about Fender Villager SCE Solid Top 12-String Acoustic Electric Guitar:

                This guitar sounds as good as much more expensive 12 string acoustics. Good electronics make tuning easy. Great feeling fairly thin neck,easy to play and fast for a 12. Very cool retro look. this re-issue looks and sounds like the quality guitars being made back in the 1960's.
