The Fender Duo-Sonic is a surprisingly hip guitar with upgraded contemporary features offering slick style and a unique sound that's perfectly at home in modern music.
24 inch Scale Length
This classic shorter scale was originally offered during the 1960s on Fender classics such as the Jaguar and Mustang guitars. The 24 inch scale remains an authentic Fender design element still offered today.
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
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 inch fingerboard radius and medium jumbo frets.
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
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
This Duo-Sonic model features a special neck plate engraved with a Fender 'F' logo—a classic design element for Fender instruments.
