Shorter Scale Length Means Eminent Playability
Ever since 1956 the Fender Duo-Sonic solidbody electric guitar has been the choice of adventurous musicians that dig Fender style, but want something a little different than a Tele or a Strat. The Duo-Sonic's unique voice is due to its 24" scale length - it's got a vibrant sound, and it also makes for a very playable instrument. It's got a slinky feel, extended chords are easier to finger, and you can pull off multi-step bends easily. A pair of single-coil pickups deliver sweet, glassy Fender tone, with sound-shaping provided by a three-way selector and Master Volume and Tone controls. Beginners and experts alike agree that there's a lot to love about the Fender Duo-Sonic.
Fender Duo-Sonic Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
- Classic Fender tone from two single-coil pickups
- Shorter scale length isn't just for beginners
- This neck feels great
Classic Fender tone from two single-coil pickups
The Fender Duo-Sonic packs two single-coil Duo-Sonic pickups, plus three-way switching and Master Volume and Tone controls. These pickups deliver those glassy clean '50s-style Fender tones, and also have enough output to make your amplifier growl when you turn up the volume knob.
Shorter scale length isn't just for beginners
The Duo-Sonic has long been a favorite among beginners and players with smaller hands, thanks to its shorter 24" scale length. And easier chording isn't all that the shorter scale has to offer - it lends a slinky feel to this guitar, and makes it easier to pull off big string bends.
This neck feels great
With a "C" profile and 9.5" fretboard radius, the Fender Duo-Sonic will feel familiar to any Fender fan. One thing we really dig at Sweetwater is that the neck is finished in satin polyurethane, as opposed to the glossy polyurethane on the body. The satin finish feels fast and smooth in your hand, delivering a broken-in feel from day one.
