The Fender Duo Sonic gets its name as being the two-pickup version of the Fender Musicmaster. The Musicmaster was a, student-focused Electric Guitar made between 1959 and 1982 with a smaller 3/4 scale length. The Duo-Sonic is a great choice for players just starting out, with all the hallmark traits of American-Made Fender Guitars with a higher price tag.
2019 saw the introduction of the Fender Offset Duo-Sonic, and instantly made these iconic instruments re-available for the modern generation. Available in both SS and HS pickup configurations, there's something for for beginners and for those that want that extra tonal horsepower offered by a humbucking pickup.
The Fender Duo Sonic has been recently championed by the likes of Shlomo, although notable rock legends like Jimi Hendrix, Joe Walsh and Walter Becker of Steely Dan.
