Price : US $1,500.
Here a wonderful 1960 pre-CBS Fender Duo Sonic, all original.
As you can tell by the photos, (and I am happy to send more!), this little dream has been put away for a long time. She is shiny even with all the expected lacquer checking! Slim, light weight, great neck and a dream to play. Sounds like the music 'back in the day'. Collector? While it is maybe no museum piece, (not sure how perfect they must be) it certainly can set in a closet and pass the time and she becomes worth more and more as the years go buy. A great investment!
The strings need to be changed and set up, the case needs a handle and once in a while when the pick up switch is in the bridge select position both pick ups are on (dust?). That's it!
I guess that if you are looking at this auction you know why Leo Fender designed and built this guitar and what this guitar is worth to the history of music so I need not waste space here telling you. Suffice it to say I am one of the many that learned to play on a Duo Sonic.
When I purchased this guitar it was with the mind set that I could get her set up and ready to go for my friend's son that had an interest in guitars. Through a life changing accident his son lost one of his arms and the guitar was never presented to him. It has stayed in my closet for all these times unable or unwilling to do anything with it. He turned 16 this past week and I told him the story of the guitar, unsure how he would take it. He just smiled and told me to sell it and buy him a car! Well, I doubt it will bring that much money but may
