Availability: OUT OF STOCK
Available to Order from our Suppliers
The Fender Duo Sonic HS finished in the eye-catching Ice Blue Metallic, is an affordable upgrade on the vintage classic, which was a popular model especially in the Seventies, when CBGB's acts such as Patti Smith, Televison and Talking Heads used them.
Though perfect for punk rock and indie, the Duo Sonic is very versatile, like Fender guitars usually are, so it's suitable for any style. It's also a great hardtail alternative to the better-known Fender Mustang.
Fixed Bridge, 1 Single Coil and 1 Humbucker with Coil-Select, and a Ice Blue Metallic Finish
Since its debut in 1956, 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. A surprisingly hip guitar with upgraded contemporary features, this instrument features slick style and a unique sound that's perfectly at home in modern music.
Almost infinitely flexible, one Duo Sonic humbucker pickup with coil-select in the bridge and and one Duo Sonic single-coil pickup neck positions lends a unique character to for everything from bright, jangly arpeggios to heavy chords.
The Humbucker delivers a more raucous output and with the coil-tap opening up a huge range of tonal experimentations.
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 Pau Ferro 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 stringthrough-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.
