The Fender Duo-Sonic takes one of Fender's classic 'alternative' guitars and treats it to a host of contemporary appointments, making a for a modern take on an underground sensation!
Launched in 1956, the Fender Duo-Sonic was an instant hit. This latest iteration takes the core elements of that guitar, with its downsized body and short 24" scale, and adds some tweaks that'll appeal to the modern player.
The streamlined, compact body is great for players of a smaller frame or Fender fans after a shape away from the norm. The body is paired with an easy playing C shaped maple neck that is topped with a modern 9.5" radius fingerboard and 22 medium jumbo frets.
Loaded with a pair of hugely flexibly Duo-Sonic single coil pickups, the Duo-Sonic is able to produce everything from bright, jangly tones to snarly drive sounds. The pickups are wired though a simple master volume and tone controls section and a 3-way pickup selector switch. Tonal uniqueness also comes courtesy of the short scale, adding warmth and thickness to its fundamental tone.
Other appointments include a six saddle string-through-body hardtail Strat bridge that not only increases sustain but also adds some additional zing and upper harmonics, and knurled flat-top control knobs.
