Size Matters Not

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.

  • Highlights

    24" SCALE LENGTH
    24" SCALE LENGTH

    This classic shorter scale was originally offered during the 1960s on Fender classics such as the Jaguar and Mustang guitars. The 24” scale remains an authentic Fender design element still offered today.

    DUO-SONIC SINGLE-COIL PICKUPS
    DUO-SONIC SINGLE-COIL PICKUPS

    Clear and punchy-sounding, thanks to their vintage-spec output, Duo-Sonic single-coil and humbucking pickups add a unique character to the guitar’s voice. The instrument’s pure Fender tone shines through with enhanced upper harmonics and an articulate midrange that easily cuts through a mix.

    MODERN "C"-SHAPED NECK
    MODERN "C"-SHAPED NECK

    This instrument features a modern neck designed for comfort and performance, with a contemporary “C”-shaped profile (the shape of the neck in cross section), 9.5” fingerboard radius and medium jumbo frets.

    THREE-WAY PICKUP SWITCH
    THREE-WAY PICKUP SWITCH

    The Duo-Sonic features a three-way toggle pickup switch, giving you the bridge pickup alone, the bridge and neck pickups together, and the neck pickup alone.

    SIX-SADDLE STRING-THROUGH-BODY HARDTAIL BRIDGE
    SIX-SADDLE STRING-THROUGH-BODY HARDTAIL BRIDGE

    This model features a hardtail bridge, rather than the classic tremolo, engineered for enhanced tuning stability and sustain. A string-through-body bridge enhances vibration transfer resulting in increased sustain while the six individual saddles can be adjusted for precise intonation along each string.

    ENGRAVED NECK PLATE
    ENGRAVED NECK PLATE

    This Duo-Sonic model features a special neck plate engraved with a Fender “F” logo—a classic design element for Fender instruments.
