Fender Player Offset Duo-Sonic HS - PF - Ice Blue Metallic

Compact Yet Comfortable

Short scale (distance between the bridge and the nut) guitars have always been popular among beginners but they're also becoming increasingly popular with more experienced players. The Duo-Sonic has a 24" scale length which is shorter than the 25.5" scale you find on most Fender guitars. This lowers the string tension which makes it easier to fret and bend notes and you also get a slightly warmer tone as a result. The lower string tension also means you can use heavier gauge strings for a thicker tone without straining your fingers.

The small alder body helps keep the guitar lightweight, taking less of a toll on your back when you're standing - especially useful if you're an energetic performer. The neck is a comfortable "C" shape with a satin finish on the back so you won't have to worry about your hand sticking to it. The pau ferro fingerboard offers a smooth yet natural feeling playing surface and the 9.5" fingerboard radius is suited to both chords and solos alike.

Classic and Modern Tones

The Duo-Sonic features a single-coil pickup in the neck position and a humbucker in the bridge position. This may look like a simple pickup configuration but there's plenty of versatility here. The neck pickup offers smooth, rounded sounds with clear and articulate note definition - great for blues and jazzy styles. The humbucker in the bridge however, provides a thicker and more powerful tone which is perfect for when you want grittier and dirtier sounds.
