A modernized version of a student-turned-classic instrument originally released in 1956, the Duo-Sonic HS model's compact form belies its giant-sized sound. It's the ideal companion for adventurous players who aren't afraid to buck the norm and shatter expectations with a short-scale neck and downsized body, powerful and versatile Duo-Sonic pickups, and Fender Player series attributes that add a touch of classic Fender style to this updated and modernized design. A different take on a classic guitar that's flown under most player's radars, the Duo-Sonic HS is ready and rarin' to go with surprisingly giant sound.

Short-Scale Neck and Downsized Body
The Duo-Sonic HS's downsized body is comfortable for smaller players or those who enjoy energetic stage performances. Its 24" scale adds a bit of warmth and thickness to the guitar's inherent tone, while granting a slinkier playing feel, making it easier to perform multi-step bends. This modern neck is 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. A gloss polyester finish protects the body while the neck bears a satin polyurethane finish for fast, easy playability.

Duo-Sonic Pickups
The Duo-Sonic HS pickups let the true voice of the instrument shine. The single-coil Duo-Sonic neck pickup is joined by a vintage-spec humbucking bridge pickup for flexible tone that can match any playing style imaginable. The push/pull tone pot switches to single coil operation on the humbucking bridge pickup, unlocking a variety of tones that can be shaped via the master volume and tone controls to find just the right sound.

Fender Player Series Attributes
Every Player Series instrument is authentically Fender, from the headstock logo to the "F"-stamped neck plate. They have the sound, style, and feel that made Fender the choice of many musical legends. The six-saddle string-through-body hardtail bridge increases sustain while the bent steel saddles add some zing to your tone, enhancing the upper harmonics to cut through a dense mix. Aesthetic appointments, including the knurled flat-top control knobs, cast/sealed tuning machines and a three-ply pickguard, add a touch of classic Fender style to this updated design.
