Part of Supro's Island Series, this 2020TS is an absolute stunner! The Westbury takes the classic vibe of 60's Supro solid body's and brings 'em into the present. It's got the classic beveled-edge Alder body style finished in Tequila Sunrise. The set neck has a fast & smooth satin neck with a 12" radius rosewood board (850"-.950"). A Tune-o-matic bridge and updated wave tailpiece round out the hardware on this beautiful beast. 

Let's talk pickups! These things sound classic AF! 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. This combo takes you from warm, single-coil neck pickup sounds, to throaty bridge tones, or a perfectly balanced, parallel combination of both pickups.

This sweet machine shows light signs of love and use, with minor pick scratches, light surface-level buckle rash, & minor dings. None of this detracts from how jaw dropping this guitar looks and how well it plays. The badass luthiers here at EMS have given it a full setup to insure that it arrives to you ready for stage or studio and no issues. It does not include a case but will be packed securely and will ship the next day.
