Ok, I took the Duo Sonic apart completely, cleaned it, de-coroded it, fixed a few poor connections (it was not used for over 20 years), and now it.. well, would love to say it rocks, but actually it s ...

Yep, the tuners might be a worry. Looks like there aren’t any better ones available that don’t require drilling. Or did someone find any?

Ooops, I saw most of those on Rinkya, but didn't pay attention as I was looking for Mustangs.

Ugh, was stuck in an endless meeting. Time to catch up here.


I guess we need to start with how you know the serial numbers weren't recycled, knowing that Fender has a 70 year history of messing ...

I don't think tort would look good either. But I don't think I like this to start with as it looks too military in a way. But yes, do post if there are more models!

Negotiated the owner down a bit. It's close to mint: one tiny ding but no obvious scratches, no fret wear and straight neck. Just lots of dust (outs ...

The white color variations for Japan built mustang's made for the US market are as follows.

1990s. Olympic white with red tort guard
2000s. Vintage white with brown tort guard.

Oh gosh! Someone just offered me a 90s Duo Sonic in black with black pickups and switches for 200 Euro in my neighbourhood! It's probably a lot more than US pawnshop prices, but considering pawnshops ...

Yeah, you might be right there that it might have existed, or might be a combination of light, computer settings and aging.

You can just keep the three way toggle switch and wire in a two-way switch for in/out of phase, and after some work to fit it, slap on a Bigsby and you should be set, really.

Actually, that does so ...

Were there ever any surf-green Japanese Mustang made in the late '90s? My guess is it's a faded sonic blue but unless the photos I'm seeing are massively photoshopped I can't really see how such an od ...

GAS is strong and there's a chance I won't find the guitar I'm looking for (certain CIJ mustang or light! Jagstang). So I keep on looking at 90s Duo-sonics. I'm looking for a light, small offset that ...

This looks so much better than the current models! A proper offset, and the bridge looks nicer!
The current Duo-Sonics are somewhat based on the late 50s/early 60s Duo-Sonic. The Duo-Sonic II is a mi ...

Hey the KC neck dims are:

Circumference at 1st - 108mm

Circumference at 12th - 130mm exact

Nut width - 41.55mm

I find it to be more of a modern C as opposed to a skinny neck. But my idea ...
