Duo-Sonic HS

Ever since 1956 the Fender Duo-Sonic solidbody electric guitar has been the choice of adventurous musicians that dig Fender style, but want something a little different than a Tele or a Strat. The Duo-Sonic's unique voice is due to its 24" scale length - it's got a vibrant sound, and it also makes for a very playable instrument. It's got a slinky feel, extended chords are easier to finger, and you can pull off multi-step bends easily. A combination of single-coil and humbucking pickups deliver sweet, glassy Fender tone, with sound-shaping provided by a three-way selector, Master Volume and Tone controls, and a push/pull tone pot that switches the humbucker to single-coil operation. Beginners and experts alike agree that there's a lot to love about the Fender Duo-Sonic.
