Today, Lawman Guitars is Presenting..

A beautiful 1965 USA Fender Duo-Sonic II Guitar in Daphne Blue with the Original Red Bulwin Hard Shell Case....

I am dating this to 1965. It has a May 1965 neck and body…pots are 1965..It then has a L serial number plate of 1965 and the pickups are also dated 1965… See pics…

I especially love the rally cool Daphne Blue color. Its been around and has many dings and scratches, but no breaks or anything other than superficial things…You cannot replicate that look. With the White Tortise look pickguard, this is the color combo you want in one of these. It was Fenders most popular…I love the look!

This fantasic Fender Duo-Sonic II guitar has dings and scratches as you would expect from a guitar of this vintage. The wear is all player wear and not abuse. Its worn in all the right places…see pics... The pickups sounds massive and the action is low and set up great. We crowned and polished the frets and they look great now.. It appears to have the original nut. Original Pickguard, tailpiece, knobs, Double line Kluson Tuners and everything. This is a time capsule that some lucky guitar player or collector will love to own. Check out the pics of this beauty. Its awesome!

Heres some info I found regarding the use of the two Pickup Selector Switches..

Each pickup has its own switch.

The switches are 3 way sliders.

The middle position is off, and the outside positions are on.

So if both switches are in the middle both pickups are off, and you shouldn't hear anything through the amp.

If one switch is off and the other is in either on position you'll get that pickup by itself--it doesn't matter which way you slide the switch out of the middle position--it's the same.

The only time the on position matters is when both pickups are on.
If both switches are on and they are both closer to the neck or both closer to the bridge--then the pickups are in phase with each other.

If they are both to the inside or both to the outside--then the pickups are out of phase. So there are two ways to have the switches so the pickups are in phase & two ways to have them out of phase--again it doesn't matter which way.

So here are all the settings..
Both pickups off
Bridge pickup on & Neck pickup off
Bridge pickup off & Neck pickup on
Both pickups on in phase
Both pickups on out of phase.


This cool Fender guitar has a full 24 inch scale neck. The nut measures 1 ½ inch. Very manageable neck with a nice round C profile. The action is set whisper low for really fast playing. Our Techs do a great job!

As cool as the guitar is, the original case is also fantastic. It’s a Bulwin Case made in CA…The latches, handle and hinges are all correct and still operating. The red felt lining is still there and in good shape. Even the leather neck restraint strap is still with the case..What a time capsule this guitar and case is… Its old and we reinforced it in places. I would get a modern case to travel in. This cool vintage case belongs under your bed to keep it together.

This guitar is being sold as-is no returns as its vintage and used. However, I have been hand picking my customers guitars for over 18 years now and they have all loved the instruments I found them. This cool Fender will certainly not be an exception.

Thanks for checking out our cool guitars …
