1957 Fender Duo-Sonic refinished and restored by our very own Tyler Geske! An excellent playing guitar ideal for clean rhythm tones and perfect for players with smaller hands with a comfy, vintage V-neck profile. The original pickups were replaced with a set of fantastic-sounding Lollar '64 Strat pickups which deliver spot-on Fender tone with plenty of jangle and chime. Other modifications include a replaced pickguard, a 60s neckplate, and replaced tuners for optimum intonation. This is an excellent Vintage student model! Includes vintage Fender hardshell case.

Check out the feature from our luthier Tyler in the ECG Newsletter:

"The most keen-eyed ECG fans out there might remember a 1954 Strat we recently sold, a one-off custom color in a unique light blue with gold anodized pickguard. It was truly one of the most special Fender guitars I’ve ever been lucky enough to handle.

So a few months ago when we came across the stripped carcass of this Duo Sonic, it was clear enough that I wouldn’t be shooting this one in Desert Sand. The neck is dated 1-57, and is remarkably similar in profile and feel to a Strat from the same period. The shape is a perfect transition between the chunky C indicative of ’56 and the iconic sharp V of the following year. While this may not be the most original example out there, I can say with extreme bias that it is absolutely the coolest. If you liked our blue ’54 Strat but couldn’t scrape up six figures, this seems like the perfect consolation prize." - Tyler Geske
