The Fender Duo-Sonic Electric Guitar is a short-scale model that was initially designed to be an inexpensive guitar aimed at amateur musicians, before finding its way to the hands of alternative musicians in the dingy clubs of New York City. Growing beyond its initial purpose, the Duo-Sonic became a genre-defining guitar with its unique sound and slick style.

Duo-Sonic Shape

The Duo-Sonic features a unique, offset body shape comprised of Alder, a Fender staple tonewood. Alder gives a very balanced tone, lightweight enough to deal with the longer shows but retaining enough density to ensure a nice tonal palette. The Duo-Sonic is an incredibly versatile guitar, working well with both vintage and modern styles.

Short Scale Design

The neck is built from Maple with a shortened 24-inch scale length to enhance playability and yield an awesome response. If you're a player with smaller hands that struggles to fret those complex jazz chords with wide stretches, trying a short scale guitar can be an absolute game-changer. 22 Medium Jumbo frets marked with Dot Inlays ensure that you never lose your way, no matter how dark and dingy the venue.

Duo-Sonic Single Coil

The Duo-Sonic Single Coils are clear and punchy, adding to the unique character of this instrument. Pure Fender tone is present here with enhanced upper harmonics and an articulate midrange that cuts easily through the mix. Like most Fender guitars, there's plenty of options to play with thanks to the 3-position toggle and tone knob combo, meaning that no matter what your preference you'll easily be able to dial in your ideal tone.

Hardwearing Hardware

Standard Cast/Sealed Tuning Machines do a fantastic job of upholding your tuning stability, ensuring even when you're harshly strumming power chords that the guitar stays in tune. A Six-Saddle Strings-Through-Body Strat Hardtail bridge with Bent Steel Saddles maintains a really nice action that's easily adjustable, as well as ensuring easy intonation when changing string gauges. As with all Fender guitars you get rock-solid build quality here, these guitars will stand the test of time in both style and substance.

The Fender Duo-Sonic Electric Guitar has bags of style to match its unique tonal palette. Originally an underground sensation, this guitar is now a firm favourite for alternative artists the world over having been played by everyone from Jimi Hendrix to David Byrne to Damon Albarn.
