25.5 Scale Duo Sonic

Post by Nudger » Wed Nov 18, 2020 8:58 pm

Am I the only nut whos slapped a strat neck on a Duo Sonic?

Had a fender strat neck sitting around so bought a Duo Sonic body..wired a rotary switch a la Electric XII.
Threw a couple o alnico V pups in it with the intention of offloading it on ebay/reverb.

Wont be happening no time soon..Cant put the thing down!

Any one know a easy way to upload photos? Id upload a picture but havent the foggiest how to?

Sounds awesome!

As for pictures, you'll need an account on an image hosting site. Imgur is a good one (free too). If you use Imgue, once you upload a picture, get the direct link to the picture (click on the picture, press the "copy" button on the right side next to the direct link URL which automatically copies the address. Back on OSG, you press the image button (3rd button left of the "normal/tiny/small" pulldown, the one that looks like a mountain with a sun/moon) and paste the link between the "]" and "[" image brackets.

Here's a thread dedicated to doing just that in case you need any more help:

Got the body off A chap on EBAY called HZGUITARS who sells Chinese bodies ,based in manchester..

Must admit, the body is flawless,Free anodised pickguard well impressed.

He described it as vintage spec 58-64
I could have got it to work with the vintage type bridge but would have had to move it back 10mm ish.
Instead..
I removed the tele type saddles from vintage bridge and modified "cut/drilled" a bridge plate off a soviet bass..

Gives me the extra distance to comfortably intonate.

I had a MIM duo but the pick guard on that model would make this conversion trickier.

Not sure about squier..

Finish is flawless..
I think paint is polly.

If you thinking of getting one of these bodys from HZGUUITARS he accepts offers..
I got mine for £125 inc postage.
