About This Listing

Very Rare 1966 Supro/Valco Reso-glass Cutaway Tonemaster Guitar made for English Electronics.
The Tonemaster Reso-glass is different than any other Valco guitar offered by Supro, National or Airline.
The guitar features two pickups- a single coil neck pickup and a built-in bridge pickup- a three way switch that allows your choice of pickups or both, and three separate knobs, one volume for each pickup & a tone control. The guitar is in excellent condition. – Please see photos.
The pickups and electronics work perfectly and the three pickup sections give it great tone options.
The neck is straight and the action is good. The guitar is all original with the minor exception of the tip to the pickup selector. This is one of the rarest reso-glass guitars made by Valco; made for just two years, only a handful of these guitars were produced.
Valco made unique Tonemaster guitars, lap steels and amplifiers for the small Lansing, Michigan based English Electronics company during the 50’s & 60’s.
This guitar comes with the original two tone hard case.
This Tonemaster is a Res-O-Glass guitar custom designed by Norm English, somewhat similar to the National Val-Pro 84 and the Supro Holiday.
Valcos have now become classic vintage guitars favored by many players, such as guitarists for
the Black Keys and the White Stripes.
A great sounding all original vintage guitar from 1965, perfect for blues and slide playing.
