    As some of you may know, I’m the proud original owner of an 08 CV Duo-Sonic, modded with a GFS lil Killer in the bridge. Well, the other day I was having some fun playing it through my MP15 and figured I’d take a video to capture the tones I was getting and figured I’d share it with you all!


    The amp is also modded a little bit, with a speaker from a Fender musicmaster bass amp and a full compliment of JJ tubes

    Thanks! I hit my fair share of clams, but it gets the point across.

    They have a few times through out the years. Mine’s one of the most recent, the Classic Vibe. It was a short lived model as part of the initial release of the Classic Vibe series. Anymore, a fender MIM duo sonic is probably easier to find and about the same price, I would think.

    They never made a Squire one, but they did make a Squier one!

    I count myself pretty lucky that I still have mine, there’s been several hard times where I thought I might have had to sell it.

    Thanks for posting. I didn't know they'd added this model.

    It's from the Player series and isn't a reissue, though, as it has significant differences from an original, maple board, Desert Sand, Duo-Sonic...

    - 24" scale vs. 22 1/2" scale
    - 22 frets vs. 21 frets
    - Medium jumbo frets vs vintage narrow frets
    - 6 cast saddle bridge vs. 3 Tele-style barrel saddle bridge
    - String through bridge vs. toploader bridge
    - 12(!)-screw pickguard vs. 8-screw pickguard. That thing will never fall off.
    - '59 Desert Tan vs. '55 Desert Tan

    ...not that I ever made a detailed study of such things when I had a '57 Musicmaster. :D

    It looks like a cool player's version and should be a ton of fun. It should play a bit differently than a 24" Mustang with a whamulator tailpiece. I hope the pickups sound good. Put on a 11-50 string set and let'er rip!

    I love my Duo Sonic too. Not exactly the same as the two single coil version but still so fun to play.

    You are very much correct. I suppose I use the term reissue rather liberally. In my mind anything that is trying to directly invoke a specific model of the past is a reissue, not so much the historical accuracy of the thing.

    If I had known, at the time I bought it, that there’s be a LPB Fender DS coming out, I probably would have held out for it haha. Nevertheless, no regrets on snagging the CV, it’s still my favorite guitar after 9 years owning it. I did pop a humbucker in the bridge on mine as well, I think it needs that bit of beefiness to contrast the single coil.

    I might as well show my two Duo's. I now own neither of them The first is obviously a CV Duo. Bone stock. The second is one I built to my own preferences using parts bought from Stratosphere. Pau Ferro fretboard - a VERY tight wood. Nice guitar, the parts fit together beautifully.

    The CV Duo was a beautiful-looking guitar, and almost impossible to photograph in a way that really did it justice. The original Squier promo pics back in the day made the thing look HIDEOUS!

    Yeah, no kidding. It’s a very difficult color scheme to photograph well. You get an accurate soliciting of either the desert sand, or the gold, but so hard to get both in the same exposure setting. That red one is gorgeous! Shame you don’t have it anymore :/
    I’ve often thought the CV would look good with a rosewood neck, but I do love the maple, especially as it gets older and the poly ages a little.
