Product Description

Designed to capture the essence of the Duo-Sonic that made its debut in 1956, today's Duo-Sonic has a unique feel and sound with modern playability. The Duo-Sonic has found its way into the hands of genre-defining artists, becoming an underground sensation that helped create alternative music in the dingy clubs of New York City.

Fender Duo Sonic Maple Fingerboard Guitar Features

  • Offset Series
  • Maple Fingerboard
  • Duo-Sonic single-coil pickups
  • Three-way pickup switch
  • Six-saddle string-through-body hardtail Strat bridge
  • Gloss polyester finish
Almost infinitely flexible, the pair of Duo-Sonic single-coil pickups in the bridge and neck positions lends a unique character to everything from bright, jangly arpeggios to heavy chords. Master volume and tone controls, along with a three-way pickup switch, shape the pickups’ voice to match the music. The 24” scale adds a bit of warmth and thickness to the guitar’s inherent tone, while granting a slinkier playing feel, making it easier to perform multi-step bends. Topped by a 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets, the “C”-shaped maple neck is comfortable for all playing styles and ideal for players with smaller hands, or those who use extended chord forms. The six-saddle string-through-body hardtail Strat bridge increases sustain while the bent steel saddles add some zing to your tone, enhancing the upper harmonics to cut through a dense mix.

The downsized body is comfortable for smaller players or those who enjoy energetic stage performances. A gloss polyester finish protects the body while the neck bears a satin polyurethane finish for fast, easy playability. Aesthetic appointments, including the knurled flattop control knobs, cast/sealed tuning machines and a three-ply Mint Green pickguard, add a touch of classic Fender style to this updated design. The unsung hero of the alternative underground, the Duo-Sonic is perfect for players who desire a unique sound and visual style.

What is your opinion of this product?
I got tired of capping off at around $205 for a guitar. Fender makes some decent squire series models for that price point but basically to me they were starter guitars.The more I grow as a musician the more of the need for an axe to match. Couldn't have asked for anything better.Has the well spaced frets of your fave faithful acoustic guitar, laying around at home. And yet miraculously the spacing is perfection so that you don't feel like some kind of hand contortionist,stretching painfully for the right chord or note. Oh and the sound! There is a definite difference between a $200 & $500 Fender,plays and sounds divine. The two-toned colors perfection. I got the Capri Orange. Reminds me of the Orange and Vanilla cream popsicles we ate as kids. I named my axe Ms.C.C. Stands for Ms. Cream-Cickle, and more tasty!Major digest for this guitar.

Wow what a sleeper....this guitar is a tone monster
What is your opinion of this product?
Fender combines a super fast maple neck with a shorter scale to create a speed players delight. The dynamics in this axe are amazing....from soft to loud with just a simple flick of the pick. The pickups have plenty of output and can easily create soaring leads that will amaze your band mates. The body is super comfortable and your picking hand position is right of the bridge for super easy palm mutes. Very comfortable and light with a quality build complete the package. This guitar is probably the most fun to play in my large collection of guitars. Highly recommend this guitar to everyone
