Finally played the Duo-Sonic models, and indeed, do not want, because of the neck. That "updated neck profile" is too chunky for a shortscale, and the satin finish on the back is gross Sad The tint is fine however. And the surf green finish is really pretty (though not at all surf green). I'd get one and put a more traditional neck on it.


I have heard that from someone else but I really love the new neck profile. It's not a baseball-bat neck but there is more meat to it. Fits my hand like a glove.

I was looking up weights on these, and the Mustangs are a pound heavier at least. Is the body that much bigger? I only see a slight difference at the waist angle.

Two exactly the same guitars made from different part of the same wood can vary in weight significantly. Plus Mustangs can be routed only for singles and Duos could have a swimming pool route or similar

Agreed, way overdue Shell Pank Stang is the best bod/finish combo in a good while.

I agree with what you are saying, but I compared a bunch of guitars on Sweetwater and also the bodies on Statosphere, not 2 or 3, but like 10 or 20 guitars. Plus they are all routed the same, those Mustangs are not routed for singles even if they do have them.

I really like the Shell Pink and 2 tone burst Mustangs. I like the Capri Orange Mustang Bass also, but wish it had the old school split Mustang Bass pickup in it. Not a fan of the J+P hybrid look, although they do sound great.
