This looks like a 61-62 Duo Sonic, but didn’t think they came in Walnut finish. Anyone have any ideas of what this could be?

I had a pre-CBS Duo Sonic in high school. Very cool guitar but it was a light pink color. I half-ass sanded it and spray painted it brown. What a knucklehead stoner.
I could argue that I was an even more knuckleheaded stoner. Had a v-necked 1956 musicmaster when I was 19 (1981). Burgundy mist, Silver anodised pickguard and it came with a certificate from the Rick Nielsen collection. Near mint and original case. Stripped the paint, threw away the pickguard, chopped a hole in it with a chisel and put an DiMarzio super Distortion in it. I should have been arrested…

I'd turn you in to the cops right now, except for the statute of limitations that has run out. ;)


I had a '57 Musicmaster with the most fat, gnarly, single coil to ever come off of a winder at Fender.

We were definitely together in our knuckleheadedness. I had a beautiful 1968 Les Paul goldtop in the mid-70s. I took out the P90s, routed holes and put in DiMarzios. Sheesh.
