Product Description

A 21st-century update of the Supro electric solid-body guitar, the Hampton features the elegant comfort of the 1960’s-era beveled-edge Ozark body shape. In addition, 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 player’s instrument with old-school style and authentic Supro tone.

The unique Gold Foil pickups found in the Supro Hampton 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 mini-humbucker-sized version of the Supro Gold Foil pickup found in this guitar have the same internal construction as the humbucker-sized versions found in the other Island Series models. The Hampton’s bridge pickup is wound slightly hotter than the others, while the middle pickup is RWRP, providing fully hum-cancelling sound in the “2 and 4” positions of the 5-way blade switch.

The time-tested tone wood recipe of an alder body paired with a 25 ½”-scale maple neck and rosewood fretboard combine with the Hampton’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.

Loving This Guitar
What is your opinion of this product?
I know this is a new guitar,but I have to say it is a notch above my Gibson Tribute Les Paul and both MIM telecasters.I hope Supro stays with this model, the competition is strong but it is built and sounds like a guitar twice the price. No flaws, pickups with braided shielded wire,pots smooth,neck is killer. These gold foil sound much like Gibson humbucker in position 4&5,Position 1,2,3 like a dark strat.
