About the Fender Duo Sonic

The Fender Duo Sonic was first introduced as a student model back in 1956 and has come a long way since then. Now offered as part of Fender's Offset selection, the Duo Sonic has become a very popular choice. No longer seen as a beginner model, the Duo Sonic is available in different variants, such as having a humbucker in the bridge position.

It is similar to the Mustang in many ways and has a scale length of 24", which makes for a smooth playing experience. For those after a no-nonsense offset guitar from one of the biggest names in the guitar world, the Fender Duo Sonic is an excellent choice.

Why Should I Choose Fender Duo Sonic?

  • Shorter scale length makes it easy to play
  • A great alternative to more traditional Fender body shapes
  • Good for Indie, Rock, Grunge and Alternative styles
