About This Listing

Hey guys! Up for sale is my Squier Duo Sonic, custom made into a '62 reissue relic in excellent condition and in perfect working order. Using Squier's Duo Sonic as a platform, every aspect of this model has been upgraded including a nitro lacquer custom color finish and Seymour Duncan Antiquity pickups.

Tonally, this short scale wonder definitely delivers the goods, and the black bobbin Duncan Duo Sonic single coils are rich and detailed, with a surprising amount of roundness and depth to compliment the expected chime and sparkle in the top end. Featherweight at 6lbs 2oz, this guitar has a snappy, pleasing acoustic tone.

The maple neck has a slender C shaped profile with an ambered satin nitro lacquer finish on the neck and medium jumbo fretwire which shows zero wear. The fretboard is a thick rosewood slab with a 7 1/4" radius and the Duo Sonic's original Pre-CBS 22 1/2" scale length. The nut measures 1 9/16" in width, and the headstock features aged Kluson-style tuners and a Pre-CBS Duo Sonic waterslide decal.

All of the electronics work as they should, with the Duncan Antiquity pickups wired to full size CTS pots and mounted to a single-ply WD pickguard. The knobs, neck plate, and bridge base are relic'd to match the tuners, while the bridge saddles are clean chrome and adjusted for optimal action and intonation. Beneath the guard, there are two slight routes to accommodate the pickup placement.

Cosmetically, this guitar is clean as can be aside from the light relic treatment applied by the luthier who converted the guitar. The matte Sonic Blue nitro lacquer finish has the perfect amount of saturation and contrasts nicely with the ambered neck and white pickguard.

A hardshell case is included.
