In 1959 the Duo-Sonic went through a face lift. The most significant change was a switch from a maple finger board to a rosewood one in keeping with changes to other Fender models at this time. These fret boards were originally in the slab-style but switched to the veneer style after approximately a year. The other significant change was a switch from anodized aluminum to plastic pickguards. To begin with the second generation Duo-Sonic was still only available in Desert Sand, however, the tan color now used was significantly darker than that used on the 1956-59 models. In 1961 a new color, sunburst, was made available; this color is sometimes referred to as maroonburst for the way it looks today. In mid-1961 the Desert Sand color was dropped and then in mid-1963 Sunburst dropped and replaced by white. 10-0802
