Good for the price, but beware of typical defects
Wilbury, 26.03.2020
I had a chance to examine about 5 guitars from the Mustang and Duo Sonic range made in Mexico. Most of them are very good in terms of build quality, especially if you take into account the price. The good news is that necks on all the 5 guitars were very decently made, including the really impressive fretwork. Much better than those "cheaper" Gibsons. However, I notice that quite typically these Mexican guitars have issues with the pickguards. Oftentimes they are not quite well aligned with the guitar's body or are warped altogether. Maybe they are poorly cut or incorrectly drilled and screwed to the body. So, I would recommend thoroughly checking the gutar at the shop if you have a chance to buy it in person. Another minor concern is that these guitars, afaik, used to be shipped at least with a gigbag. Now they are not, so you'll have to take care of a case or a gigbag yourself. Finally, one of the five guitars that I had a chance to put my hands on had significant finish problems to the extend that I cannot understand how quality control could let them out at all (it was not at Thomann, but elsewhere). But maybe it was an exception. Otherwise, I recommend these axes as reasonably well built, light-weight, versatile and quite affordable.

Die hübsche kleine Schwester der Strat
Dagrobert, 09.06.2020
Das fing erst mal nicht so gut an: Als die Duo-Sonic bei mir ankam, ragte der Hals-Pick-Up soweit aus dem Gehäuse heraus, dass er die Saiten berührte. Fehler war schnell gefunden, eine Rückhaltefeder unter der Einstellschraube fehlte. Ich konnte das zum Glück mit einer Feder aus einem Kugelschreiber (!) in 10 Minuten reparieren. Die Qualitätskontrolle von Fender hatte offensichtlich einen schlechten Tag...

Verarbeitung ist ansonsten gut - schönes Lackfinish, angenehmer Hals ohne scharfe Bundkanten.

Bespielbarkeit: Traumhaft, wenn man C-Profile mag und tendenziell leichtere Gitarren.

Sound: die Pick-Ups sind in Ordnung und der Klang ausgewogen. Der Steg-Humbucker könnte mehr Druck haben - ist aber jammern auf hohem Niveau.

Features: durch den Push-Pull-Poti für Coil-Split des Humbuckers hat man diverse Klangmöglichkeiten. Ich bin zufrieden.

Ich hab diese Duo-Sonic (599 Euro) auch im Vergleich zur Squier Bullet Mustang (159 Euro) getestet. Lohnt sich der Aufpreis? Ich finde schon, aber es kommt drauf an, was man sucht: die Bullet Mustang klingt verzerrt auch ganz ordentlich , aber clean sehr dürftig:
dünn, charakterlos und hat wenig Sustain. Die Duo-Sonic dagegen sowohl clean also auch dreckig mit tollem Sound. Ich kann sie nur empfehlen.

Warum habe ich mir keine Stratocaster gekauft? Ich wollte explizit KEIN Tremolo und ich wollte die kürzere Mensur der Duo-Sonic. Deshalb ist die Duo-Sonic für mich : die hübsche kleine Schwester der Strat.
