First seen circa 2005

John Frusciante’s 1960s Fender Duo-Sonic

This guitar was seen on some photos taken at John’s place presumably sometime in the early 2000s. Unfortunatly, John does not seem to mention the guitar in any of articles and interviews, so not much is known about it.

What can be concluded from the photos is that the guitar is most likely an early to 1960s Fender Duo-Sonic finished in white, featuring two single-coil pickups, and a stop-tail bridge. The guitar also appears to be a short-scale model, measuring 22.5″ scale length instead of 24″ like on most of the standard models.
