Its a snazzy axe
I got myself a B-stock HS one in black newish for £299 best buy of my life the easy to play short-scale length is good as mine was an older one with rosewood not pau ferro it feels familiar and good but the pickups were a little weak so being a HS i put my favourite EMG 81 for bridge and went for an EMG S single coil for the neck and wired them with some nice active circuitry magic and this thing is a shredding beast and because of the short scale I run it with 11s which is my rhythm strings and they feel like 10s
A underrated gem of a guitar
I own a partscaster clone of the early ash bodied 1956 Duo Sonic. It's an exact replica of the original 1956 Duo Sonic and even has the gold anodized aluminum pickguard. However unlike the original Duo Sonic my clone has nickel hardware and Zexcoil pickups. I use the Zexcoil Z-Core 5 Vintage Underwound pickup at the neck and Z-Core 5 Vintage Hot pickup at the bridge. I use the Rutters La Burrito 3-saddle bridge in it with compensated brass saddles and the tuning duties are handled by Kluson Supreme tuners.
Back when I assembled this guitar those MIM Offset Series Fender Duo Sonic guitars weren't released by Fender and I was unwilling to hunt for an original vintage 1956 Duo Sonic guitar.
It's a great sounding guitar and it sounds excellent though my Fender Hot Rod Deville. Its short scale makes bending notes almost effortless, and it has a rock solid tuning stability.
