Classic in vibe, with modern playability.
The Squier Classic Vibe Duo-Sonic ’50s is an electric guitar that is dripping with coolness and classic Fender vibe. The Duo-Sonic guitar was originally conceived as a student-grade model designed to capture the attention of 1950s youth caught up in the burgeoning rock ‘n’ roll craze. Collectors, performing musicians and Fender fanatics have since come to know the Duo-Sonic as an ultra-cool addition to the Fender line of Fine Electric Instruments.
Coming in Desert Sand over Basswood, this 21 fret gloss maple neck prize combines a comfortable 24" scale with the modern playability of a 9.5" radius and medium jumbo frets. Equipped with a custom set of AlNiCo V single-coil pickups and three-way selector switch, the Classic Vibe Duo-Sonic produces bright, clear tones that are unmistakably Fender.
Classic Vibe! Back in 1982, the very first Squier by Fender guitars and basses came ringing out of Asia. Known for their excellent vintage-quality look, feel, sound and construction, those early Squier instruments and their Fender branded counterparts are now highly sought-after collector’s items revered by guitar enthusiasts as models of "getting it right" while aiming at value-conscious players. The Squier Classic Vibe Series reflects that simultaneous commitment to excellence, value and vibe. Mirroring classic Fender designs, the Classic Vibe offering is not intended to be era or vintage correct, but rather imparting the ‘vibe’ of a classic Fender design. Each with distinctive feature set combinations—all adding up to one classic looking instrument. Great sound, vintage looks, unbeatable value—Classic Vibe!
