High Performance Recreation of Supro’s Finest, Offering a Sonic Palette that Covers a Wide Range of Styles
The Supro 1296 Silverwood electric guitar is a high-performance recreation of the instrument that was referred to as “Supro’s Finest Electric” when it was introduced in the 1960 catalog. This reissue of Supro’s flagship model is constructed with select tone woods, ergonomic body contours and premium hardware, making it a real player’s guitar with an authentic vintage look.
The 2019 Supro Silverwood is offered with a choice of mahogany or ash body with a glued-in, set-neck joint for excellent stability and superior access to the upper frets. The 24 ¾”-scale maple neck has a smooth black satin finish on the back and 22-fret Pau Ferro fretboard on top, and is silky smooth and comfortable to play.
The Silverwood’s authentic vintage sound comes from Supro Gold Foil pickups which provide high-output, broadband, single-coil tone with extremely low noise. These high output single coils deliver the perfect sonic palette to cover a wide range of musical styles including classic and modern rock, blues, funk and R&B styles.
Premium hardware appointments add a luxurious look and feel to this classic Supro flagship guitar. A fixed TOM bridge with a Stair Step Trapeze tailpiece, acrylic block inlays, chrome diecast tuners ensure rock solid tuning stability and accurate intonation.
