Fender Duo Sonic HS - PF - Canary Diamond

The Fender Duo Sonic is one of those rare gems in the Fender offset family that has been around since the mid 50's and has been in and out of production since. Now it is back in the lineup at a great low price meaning players of all levels can get to experience a guitar like this.

Simple Build

Like a lot of the Fender offset guitars simplicity is key in making this such a great guitar for the money. Using a Mustang style body matched up with a vintage style Maple neck with Pau Ferro fretboard this guitar has a really interesting feel thanks to that shorter scale length that the Duo Sonic and Mustang are known for. There is nothing crazy here, just great quality guitar building at an affordable price.

Short Scale Length

One of the really cool parts about the Offset series is the use of shorter scale lengths. While the earlier versions of this guitar used a really short 22.5" scale this version uses a 24" scale. This fits in between full size Fender scale and 3/4 scale giving you the benefits of easier bends and a really smooth sound without losing out on playability.

HS Setup

While most versions of the Duo Sonic have used a pair of single coils to get a lot of midrange punch out of the guitar thanks to that low tension, this version has instead opted for a HS layout. With a Humbucker in the bridge and single coil in the neck you get an extra layer of drive and grit in the bridge position letting you get classic Nirvana like crunch without loads of single coil whine.
