The Island Series guitars are updated, high-performance instruments based on the 1962 version of the Supro Ozark. The timeless curves of this vintage solidbody design have been enhanced with ergonomic set-neck construction, satin-neck finish and comfortable 12â€ radius with rolled fretboard edges.
All three of the Supro Island Series models come equipped with vintage Gold Foil pickupsâ€”accurate replicas of the original Supro â€œClear-toneâ€ pickups of the 50s and 60s. These unique, field-coil pickups are low-noise single coils with no pole pieces, an extra-wide magnetic field and a huge, broadband tone. The Island Series guitars are available in single, double and triple pickup configurations with a range of unique metallic colors, as well as black, white or tobacco flame maple.
The Hampton is a 21st-century update of the Supro electric solidbody guitar. The elegant comfort of the 1960â€™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 playerâ€™s instrument with old-school style and authentic Supro tone!
The Hamptonâ€™s Gold Foil pickups use the same internal construction as the original â€œClear-toneâ€ pickups, providing 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 has the same internal construction as the humbucker-sized versions found in the other Island Series models.
The Hamptonâ€™s bridge pickup is wound slightly hotter than the others, while the middle pickup is RWRP, providing fully hum-cancelling sound in the â€œ2 and 4â€ positions of the 5-way blade switch.
The time-tested tone-wood recipe of an alder body paired with a 25 Â½â€-scale maple neck and rosewood fretboard combine with the Hamptonâ€™s vintage-correct pickups to produce an exceptionally dynamic playing experience. Blending vintage American tone with refined set-neck design, the Supro Hampton is intended for the professional musician who needs an ergonomic and versatile guitar capable of handling most genres of music with authority.
The three pickups cover a huge range of tones, from fat single-coil jazz tones in the neck position to spanky funk tones and sparkling twang in the middle, and pure rock power when the bridge pickup is selected.
