Supro Guitars, now at Woodsy's! Cool reissues of classic models with modern technology.
This is the Westbury from Supro's Island Series of solid body guitars. Modeled on the 1960’s-era beveled-edge Ozark body shape and the mighty sound of the original field-coil pickups.
The unique Gold Foil pickups found in the Supro Westbury 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 humbucker-sized Gold Foil bridge pickup found in the Westbury is slightly overwound, while the neck pickup is reverse-wound in order to provide fully hum-cancelling sound when the two pickups are combined by selecting the middle position of the 3-way toggle switch.
