Features We Love:
Duo Sonic History
The original Duo Sonic was first introduced back in 1956 as a low cost "student" model, similar to the Mustang in size, the Duo Sonic was loved for its rounded tones and simple design. It went through a few design changes through its run until it was discontinued in 1969. The Duo Sonic went on to live a second life as a popular choice of the alternative and new wave movements. As an affordable guitar found in pawn shops, Duo Sonics landed in the hands of many iconic musicians, such as David Byrne from Talking Heads, Dean Ween from Ween and Martin Gore from Depeche Mode. Thanks to its resurgence in popularity, the Duo Sonic has received several reissues over the last 30 years, this latest version represents a modded classic, with a humbucker pickup and Strat-style bridge.
Duo Sonic Pickups
The combination of a single-coil in the neck position and humbucker in the bridge lets this guitar stand out from the rest. With the humbucker giving the guitar a big tone that's great for alternative and grungy tones and the single-coil allowing you to add a little more of that signature Fender chime to your sound.
The Duo Sonic is loved for its smaller body size and shorter scale, this benefits younger players, players with smaller hands or those who plan on being active on stage. It's also a great choice for beginners as it's a guitar that is always comfortable and never feels limiting. Plus the fact that it looks great doesn't hurt either!
- Amazing vintage looks
- Great warm tones
- Hardtail bridge offers reliable tuning stability
