Easy to play with an impressive variety of tones.
A modernized version of a student-turned-classic
instrument originally released in 1956, the
Duo-Sonic HS model’s compact form belies its
giant-sized sound. It’s the ideal companion for
adventurous players who aren’t afraid to buck the
norm and shatter expectations.
The Duo-Sonic HS new pickups let the true voice of the instrument shine. The single-coil Duo-Sonic neck pickup is joined by a vintage spec humbucking bridge pickup for flexible tone that can match any playing style imaginable. The push/pull tone pot switches to single coil operation on the humbucking bridge pickup, unlocking a variety of tones that can be shaped via the master volume and tone controls to find just the right sound.
The 24” scale adds a bit of warmth and thickness to the guitar’s inherent tone, while granting a slinkier playing feel, making it easier to perform multi-step bends. Topped by a 9.5”-radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets, the “C”-shaped maple neck is comfortable for all playing styles and ideal for players with smaller hands, or those who use extended chord forms.
The six-saddle string through-body hardtail Strat bridge increases sustain while the bent steel saddles add some zing to your tone, enhancing the upper harmonics to cut through a dense mix. The smaller body is ideal for smaller players or for energetic stage performances. A gloss polyester finish protects the body while the neck bears a satin polyurethane finish for fast, easy playability.
The aesthetic appointments, including the knurled flat-top control knobs, cast/sealed tuning machines and a three-ply Mint Green pickguard, add a touch of classic Fender style to this updated and modernized design. A new take on a classic guitar that’s flown under most player’s radars, the Duo-Sonic HS is ready and rarin’ to go with surprisingly giant sound. Case sold separately.
