The Dual-Tone is a reproduction of the two-pickup, fiberglass Supro electric guitar that was manufactured in the early 1960s. The Dual-Tone reissue guitar mates a chambered Mahogany back with a newly-developed, composite Acousti-glass top. This updated construction preserves the instruments Art Deco aesthetics and timeless sound while improving its semi-hollow acoustic resonance and tuning stability. The Dual-Tones vintage-correct tuners, Art Deco stairstep tailpiece and adjustable rosewood bridge are joined by a faithful replica of the legendary Vistatone pickup to bring you a fully realized and worthy reissue of this classic Supro guitar. The Vistatone pickups found in the Supro Dual-Tone are a reproduction of the groundbreaking, single coil design developed for Valco by Ralph Keller in the early 1950s. The Vistatone pickup is cited as prior art in Seth Lovers PAF patent and is found in many of the most desirable vintage Supro models. The Supro Dual-Tone has a powerful, electric swamp-blues tone that is anything but subtle. Its a gnarly sounding instrument that loves tube amps and fuzz pedals of all kinds. The neck pickup sounds huge and wooly, while the bridge pickup has an unmistakable midrange growl that is downright dirty. Our semi-hollow recipe of an Acousti-glass top and mahogany body retains the unique sonic characteristics of the original res-o-glass models while providing todays musicians with a lightweight, highly playable instrument that stays in tune and is easy to maintain. The Dual-Tone guitar and its relatives in the Americana Series of Supro electric guitars were designed by Trevor Wilkinson and David Koltai to capture the spirit and sound of the Art Deco-influenced, historic line of Supro instruments.
