The Story
The Coronado II Vibrato is a reproduction of the two-pickup, vibrato bar-equipped, wide-body Supro electric guitar that was first manufactured in Chicago during the early 1960s. The Coronado reissue mates a chambered body with a newly developed, composite "Acousti-glass" top. This updated construction preserves the instrument's signature aesthetics and timeless sound while improving its semi-hollow acoustic resonance and tuning stability.

The Coronado's vintage-correct tuners, Art Deco stairstep tailpiece and adjustable rosewood bridge are joined by a faithful replica of the legendary Vistatone pickup to bring you a fully realized and worthy reissue of this classic Supro guitar.

Vistatone Pickups
The Vistatone pickups found in the Supro Coronado are a reproduction of the groundbreaking, single-coil design developed for Valco by Ralph Keller in the early 1950s. The Vistatone pickup is cited as prior art in Seth Lover's PAF patent and is found in many of the most desirable vintage Supro models.

Legendary Sound
The Supro Coronado has a powerful, electric swamp-blues tone that is anything but subtle. It's a gnarly sounding instrument that loves tube amps and fuzz pedals of all kinds. The neck pickup sounds huge and wooly while the bridge pickup has an unmistakable midrange growl that is downright dirty.

Our semi-hollow recipe of an Acousti-glass top and chambered body retains the unique sonic characteristics of the original reso-glass models while providing today's musicians with a lightweight, highly playable instrument that stays in tune and is easy to maintain.

Americana Series
