Since its debut in 1956, the Duo-Sonic has found its way into the hands of genre-defining artists, becoming an underground sensation that helped create alternative music in the dingy clubs of New York City. A surprisingly hip guitar with upgraded contemporary features, this instrument features slick style and a unique sound that's perfectly at home in modern music.
Designed for authentic Fender tone — with a bit of an edge — the Player Series pickups are crisp and articulate, a modern tweak of our classic sound. The “C” neck is comfortable and slim for fast action and effortless bending. Adding a 22nd fret lets you bend the highest D up to an E, giving you access to four octaves of musical possibilities.
A hardtail bridge enhances vibration transfer resulting in increased sustain while the six individual saddles can be adjusted for precise intonation along each string. Each Player Duo-Sonic includes an “F”-stamped neck plate, leaving no doubt as to the instrument’s pedigree. The Player Duo-Sonic body is hand-shaped to original specifications.
