So about 6 months ago I fell in love w/ a 65 Duosonic that I just couldn't afford. And it was pretty beat to boot... So I just lusted in my heart and moved on. Then last week this showed up on craigslist and I snapped it up within about an hour of the listing! She is a pristine 1965 Duosonic II in unbelievable condition. All original - the Neck pickup and pot dates all check out. It had the original strings on it - telephone wires that had bowed the neck pretty severely. But a new set of D'Adario 10's and a tweak on the truss rod and the neck is straight as an arrow! She came w/ an original Fender strap , polishing cloth, case (w/ keys) that still latches and original tags. It even still SMELLS like 1965! Check out the original price in the booklet. Unreal...... And does it ever play & sound great. That 24" scale fits my hands just right. I've got my blues guitar for life! Should be great for scratching out Meters tunes too. I'll try to get some clips up next week. Tomo - I know you are into these Duosonics. I'll try to bring it to NAMM next year if you will be there. I know you'd love to give her a play!
