Inspired by the original Supro range of electric guitars, the Supro Hampton is a modern day take on the classic '60s designed Supro electric solidbody.
With an Alder body finished in a striking Antique White, it really captures the old-school styling and cool vintage vibe. Paired with a 25.5" scale set Maple neck with Rosewood fingerboard the Hampton is super dynamic and offers a comfortable and authentic playing experience.
The real statement piece of the Supro Hampton is the unique, Gold Foil pickups. A reproduction of the original Valco pickups of the '50s, they were the sound of a generation. Slightly overwound, the bridge Gold Foil hits the same sonic sweet spot as the original for those vintage American tones. The mini-humbucker-sized version of the Supro Gold Foil pickup found in this guitar have the same internal construction as the humbucker-sized versions found in the other Island Series models. The Hampton's bridge pickup is wound slightly hotter than the others, while the middle pickup is RWRP, providing fully hum-cancelling sound in the "2 and 4" positions of the 5-way blade switch.
The vintage design is complimented by modern day build techniques including a tune-o-matic bridge and improved tailpiece for enhanced tuning stability and intonation.
The Supro Hampton is a modern players guitar with a strong vintage soul.
