Cool Duo sonic's man!
GAS-ing for a Duo Sonic...ugh...
Yeah... it's my most recent pickup. I have had a lot of changeover in the last year or so. but i swear i think i'm done. i am finally happy with the variety and options in my stuff.
Speaking of changeover and duo sonics... i really miss my old MIM duo. The neck was crazy short so a lot of stuff was hard to play on that thing, but it was a great no nonsense pick up and play little rocker. I'm really temtped by the new MIM releases coming out now, but like i said earlier i am done.
One more offset from my guitar family.....This is my first guitar, a 65 Zenon, which doesn't come out of it's case often these days.
Thanks Pat V!! What is that white Ibanez? My 2nd guitar was a blue roadstar strat copy...wish I kept it! Had a similar headstock.
It's a Roadcore RC430. They were blowing them out for next to nothing right before they were discontinued. I paid $218.00 for it shipped brand new. It's a very well made guitar and lots of fun to play. It also has a pair dummy coils which gives a unique twist to the standard single coil sound.
Two recent new "offsets" for me.
Fender Duo-Sonic and BWG-Malibu (review in the works)
I think it's a bit of a stretch to call the Duo-Sonic an offset but Fender includes it the new "Offset Series" so who am I to say. At any rate, I like both of these guitars a lot and am even eyeing one of the new Mustangs.
Pics first of the Duo-Sonic.
....and the Malibu.
This shows the difference in body shapes. the Mustang is truly an offset. The Duo-sonic... not so much.
I ha always thought once they went to the Duo Sonic and Musicmaster II series, they shared the same body with the newly introduced Mustang circa 1964,
Yes from 1956 to 1964, the Duo-Sonic had the “non offset” styled bodies as did the Musicmaster. In late 1964 they were released as the Duo-Sonic II with the Mustang styled offset body contours.
I still kick myself for not snagging one of the Squier Duo-Sonics in Desert Sand that were produced from 2008 – 2011. I would see them regularly at GC and every one I played felt pretty good but I basically kept putting it off until they were gone.
My upgraded VMJM with Staytrem bridge, collet & arm, tusq nut, and Mastery... string tree! Bit of a Friday afternoon guitar but several weeks of tweaking finally paid off. Going to redo the wiring loom, replace all the screws and tuners, and probably install a Teisco pickup in the middle, being a huge Cure fan. Eventually, matching headstock and threaded neck inserts too, but there's a solid chance that another plank will fall victim to my diddling...
decided to take an offset family photo.
Here's my new Jag. Only offset
I own. Very nice guitar. Maybe someday change the pickguard to tortoise shell.
Here's my 1964 Zenon "Victoria" made in Japan
My two together.
I have two and a half.
1995 Fender Jag-Stang.
SX SJM '57. It's a precursor to the SX Liquid.
Squier VM Jaguar Body and Neck.
Vintage mod Jazzmaster
I love this due sonic now that I've fine sanded the back of the neck where it's not sticky.
