‘64 Duo Sonic II Gold Sparkle

Post by Nosbarb » Sat Mar 28, 2020 6:02 am

New to the forum and thought I’d share my ‘64 Duo Sonic II in original Gold Sparkle finish. Also features rare white on pearloid plastic parts and original Fender leather gig bag. Neck is Brazilian rosewood board and clay dots. -Enjoy!

Thanks for all the kind comments!

The guitar itself is stunning to play and hold, especially when looking down at the finish. Very similar in color to the Fender Rhodes Pianos of that era.

Welcome and what a beautiful guitar! Thanks for sharing it. That sparkle color is amazing. Do you have any interior photos you could share? I'd love to see the neck pocket and body under the pickguard.
