Do you ever find yourself wondering just how much fun can be had for less than ten bones? If so, we have your answer in the form of this 1962 Duo-Sonic.

Hey, as rewarding as a channel-swtiching, dual-rectifier amp can be at times, sometimes there nothing more satisfying than plugging an old Fender guitar into a Gibson Skylark or Fender Champ and wailing away at living-room volumes, especially if it’s early on a Sunday morning and you’re doing your best to reconstruct Scotty Moore’s slippery licks on Elvis’ “Mystery Train.” We love the middle position on the early Duo Sonics; the pickup are connected in series, producing a BIG, wide-ranging tone that's beautiful for slide, rhythm comping, smoky blues, or just about anything else.

Repro pickguard, bridge pickup rewound by none other than the estimable Lindy Fralin. Stunning shell pink finish appears to be an old refin. Extra string retainer hole in the headstock, else all original and fully functional.

This beauty provides a great fun factor and is perfect for younger players or those with smaller hands. We have pretty big hands, and we like it, too. Includes original hardshell case. $SOLD!
