Just got a 60s Fender Villager 12 string from Ebay.
It's a bit worn but still playable. Have wanted one since I was in Jr High. A buddy of mine his brother had one and loved playing when ever I got the chance.

Re-strung it with 80/20 Ernie Ball light strings. Still trying to get use to playing it, may consider a re-fret because the frets seem really low.

Considering the age and the wear it still sounds good.

I always thought they looked cool. I like Fenders headstock shape for these and the Fender XII electric. I've never played one. Enjoy!

Well, that's not one you hear about very often. You've waited a long time, but hopefully it will be worth it. Have fun with that thing.

I just saw a cool photo of somebody with one of those strapped on. Jackson Browne, maybe?

I've never seen one in person.
