Supro Jamesport Island Series Electric Guitar Bronze Metallic
The Jamesport is a 21st-century update of the Supro electric solid body guitar. This Isand Series Jamesport guitar features an alder body finished in a striking bronze metallic finish, and featuring the elegant comfort of the 1960’s-era beveled-edge Ozark body shape. The maple set neck with black satin finish has a comfortable 25.5" scale and a 12" radius rosewood fretboard with dot inlays. The unique Gold Foil pickup is a faithful reproduction of the original magnetics developed for Valco by Ralph Keller in the early 1950s. These pickups, which gave voice to the vintage Chicago-made Supro guitars, have a massive, broadband sound with remarkably low noise for a single-coil design. The humbucker-sized version of the Supro Gold Foil pickup used in the Jamesport is slightly overwound and located right at the harmonic “sweet spot”—as seen on the original Supro Ozark. The Jamesport also features 50’s-wiring volume and tone controls and a wave tailpiece. While the guitar has only one pickup, it can cover a wide range of tones from twang to blues, funk, rock and jazz. A modern player’s instrument with old-school style and authentic Supro tone!
