We’re seldom at a loss for words here at Aardvark Central, but when we first opened the case for this beauty, the only sound was our collective jaws dropping. None of us have ever seen a Supro guitar, lap steel or amplifier in anything approaching this condition. In fact, we had to double check to be sure this wasn’t a recent reissue. And even better, it sounds great. Some guitar historians gripe that vintage Supros suffered from underpowered pickups and, to be fair, the stock unit in this guitar is no PAF. That said, what this guitar does, it does very well, delivering gloriously raunchy garage tones and juke joint snarl. And don’t get us started on how perfectly suited it is to gutbucket bottleneck blues.  Original Kluson Deluxe tuners still work great, plastic knobs and pickguard are perfect with no cracks. In fact, other than two small dings on the headstock, this guitar is in excellent plus condition. Original grey chipboard case with white trim. A rare find. Sold!
