1947 SUPRO SUPREME VALCO MADE HAWIIAN STEEL GUITAR BROWN PEARLETTE

 

Vintage Gear America is pleased to offer this super nice example of a 1947 Supro Supreme serial number X7253 covered in in beautiful brown pearlette with Lucite fingerboard back painted with brown geometric shapes as position markers. Worth mentioning the pickup used by Valco at this time is notoriously great sounding to the extent that some luthiers were building guitars with this pickup and sometimes bridge. There was also a Supro solid body electric Spanish guitar named “The Ozark” that featured this pickup and bridge in the exact same way as Valco steels. Fantastic sounding great looking, no issues condition wise except a couple of places where the wrap bubbled up behind the bridge (photos) is now stable. All original with no modifications or repairs, only minor signs of age and use could be considered an all-original condition 9 with no case. John Nelson is a professional musician, vintage guitar and vintage gear expert with many years of experience. You can buy with complete confidence that your instrument has been properly identified, vetted and if necessary thoroughly researched, as we always know the originality of and value of any stringed musical instrument we are selling.
