Well that Duo Sonic is a much smaller scale than a Mustang really.

For 500 you can pick up a used Mustang...

Also, what music do you play?

Contradictory to what i said in your sig:

No it isn't They are both 24" scale, however, the Duo Sonic is very different because of different wood used, different hardware, pickup positioning etc.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

^Yeah you're right there, I mixed it up with the Bronce which was a small scale one!

I remembered that now. The Duo Sonic does use the same wood though (Mustangs are basswood).

I thought the mustang reissues were poplar? But i'm not entirely sure so i'll just agree with you.

I understand why you got confused about the scale. The original fender duo-sonic from the 50s was 22.5" scale, then in the 60s they changed it to 24" before they replaced the musicmaster and duo sonic with the bronco and the mustang, but they've called the squier CV the "50s" duo sonic despite having the 24" scale.

I thought the bronco was 24", but it might've been issued with both of the "student model" scale lengths at different times similarly to the duo-sonic. I want squier to make a Classic Vibe series Bronco...

I play mostly classic rock and blues. It seems like the Mustang would fit it pretty well, would it not?

WRONG!

Most people accosiate the Mustang tone with Curt Cobain. But this is wrong. He changed out the pickups, bridge and wiring and so on. Basically everything that was SPECIAL with a Mustang!

Mustangs are basswood. The one I owned was!

Oh and TS for classic rock and blues, yes the guitar will do great!

Sorry if this is a dumb question but TS meaning? A Tele?

(thread starter)

For the OP(original poster)

Try playing some guitars before you buy one. There's a plethora (a lot) of guitars out there for Classic Rock and Blues.
#22
Also classic rock and blues is very wide in sounds. I play blues and classic rock, think The Who, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Cream and so on. I use mainly a Les Paul, since I prefer their sound.

I play Cream, Derrick and the Dominoes, Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Freddy King mostly. I thought the Mustang would do because of the wood type and the single coiled pickups.
#24
Well besides Derek and Pink Floyd that's mostly humbucker tones. I'd get a Fat Strat or Les Paul if I were you...

Isn't Gilmour's main a Stratocaster though. I know he uses actives in his and has for a while, but he sparingly has used a Les Paul from what I can remember.
#26
Hmm i would say a mustang (if you modded it) would suit grunge but you'd have to know how :/
