Fender Duo-Sonic Capri Orange

Fender re-introduce their offset Duo-Sonic guitar. The Fender Duo-Sonic was originally launched in 1956 as a “student” model guitar and has been in and out of production since. The new Duo-Sonic is a modern take not a strict re-issue featuring two single-coil pickups, a classic short scale 24”, hardtail bridge and some cool new colours…

This classic shorter scale was originally offered during the 1960s on Fender classics such as the Jaguar and Mustang guitars. The 24” scale remains an authentic Fender design element still offered today. The Duo-Sonic features a modern neck designed for comfort and performance, with a contemporary “C”-shaped profile (the shape of the neck in cross section), 9.5” fingerboard radius and medium jumbo frets. Also features a hardtail bridge, rather than the classic tremolo, engineered for enhanced tuning stability and sustain. A string-through-body bridge enhances vibration transfer resulting in increased sustain

The Fender Duo-Sonic and Duo-Sonic HS were designed to exude modern sound suited for independent artists and players looking for alternative body-shapes and aesthetic features.
