Supro Hampton Island in Ocean Metallic Blue
Supro 2030BM Hampton Island Series Guitar - Ocean Blue Metallic The Hampton is a 21st-century update of the Supro electric solid-body guitar. The elegant comfort of the 1960 s-era beveled-edge Ozark body shape and the mighty sound of the original field-coil pickups have been enhanced with an ultra-fast satin neck, Tune-o-matic bridge and updated wave tailpiece. The result is a modern players instrument with old-school style and authentic Supro tone.The unique Gold Foil pickups found in the Supro Hampton are faithful reproductions 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 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.
