The Duo-Sonic's unique voice is due to its 24" scale length. It possesses a vibrant sound and makes for a very playable instrument. It has a slinky feel, extended chords are easier to finger, and you can pull off multistep bends easily. A combination of single-coil and humbucking pickups delivers sweet, glassy Fender tone, with sound-shaping provided by a 3-way selector, Master Volume and Tone controls, and a push-pull tone pot that switches the humbucker to single-coil operation. Beginners and experts alike agree that there's a lot to love about the Fender Duo-Sonic.
Classic Fender tone and more
The Fender Duo-Sonic HS packs a Duo-Sonic single-coil, a bridge-position humbucker, plus 3-way switching and Master Volume and Tone controls. Pull up on the tone pot to switch the humbucker to single-coil mode for classic Fender chime, or push it down for growling humbucker tone. These pickups deliver those glassy '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.
A familiar-feeling neck
With a "C" profile and 9.5" fretboard radius, the Fender Duo-Sonic will feel familiar to any Fender fan. 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.
