Supro Sahara Electric Guitar 1570WB

Supro

1570wb

The Sahara is a wide-body reproduction of the single-pickup electric guitar that was manufactured in Chicago during the early 1960s. This historic reissue guitar mates a chambered body with a newly developed, composite “Acousti-glass” top. This updated construction preserves the instrument’s Art Deco aesthetics and timeless, semi-hollow sound while improving its acoustic resonance and tuning stability. The Sahara’s vintage-correct tuners, dobro 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. The Sahara and its relatives in the Americana Series of Supro electric guitars were designed by Trevor Wilkinson and David Koltai to capture the spirit and sound of the Art Deco-influenced, historic line of Supro instruments manufactured in Chicago by Valco during the guitar boom of the 1960s.
