  •     One Duo-Sonic single-coil neck pickup; one Duo-Sonic humbucking bridge pickup with coil-split capability
  •     9.5”-radius maple fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets
  •     Six-saddle string-through-body hardtail Strat® bridge with bent steel saddles
  •     Master Volume and Tone controls; three-way pickup switch




24" SCALE LENGTH


This classic shorter scale was originally offered during the 1960s on Fender classics such as the Jaguar and Mustang guitars. The 24" scale remains an authentic Fender design element still offered today.


DUO-SONIC PICKUPS

Clear and punchy-sounding, thanks to their vintage-spec output, Duo-Sonic single-coil and humbucking pickups add a unique character to the guitar’s voice. The instrument’s pure Fender tone shines through with enhanced upper harmonics and an articulate midrange that easily cuts through a mix.


MODERN "C"-SHAPED NECK

This instrument features a modern neck designed for comfort and performance, with a contemporary “C”-shaped profile (the shape of the neck in cross section), 9.5” fingerboard radius and medium jumbo frets—ideal for those who play with the thumb on the back or side of the neck.


SPECIAL ELECTRONICS


The Duo-Sonic features a three-way toggle pickup switch, giving you either the bridge or neck pickup alone, or both. The push/pull tone control knob selects just the bridge coil of the Duo-Sonic humbucking bridge pickup, unlocking a variety of tones.


SIX-SADDLE STRING-THROUGH-BODY HARDTAIL BRIDGE


This model features a hardtail six-saddle bridge for solid tuning stability, precise intonation and increased sustain. The string-through-body design enhances string-to-body vibration transfer for added sustain.


ENGRAVED NECK PLATE


This Duo-Sonic model features a special neck plate engraved with a Fender “F” logo—a classic design element for Fender instruments.
