Product Details

The Martinique is a reproduction of the top-of-the-line, piezo-equipped fiberglass Supro electric guitar that was manufactured in the early 1960s. The Martinique reissue mates a chambered body with a newly developed, composite “Acousti-glass” top. This updated construction preserves the instrument’s Art Deco aesthetics as well as the signature blend of piezo and magnetic pickups, while improving its semi-hollow acoustic resonance and tuning stability.

The Martinique’s vintage-correct tuners, Art Deco stairstep tailpiece and adjustable, piezo-equipped 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.

Americana Series Guitars

The Americana Series guitars are replicas of the Supro “reso-glass” instruments, uniquely constructed with a chambered mahogany body and resonant molded top. This semi-hollow recipe retains the unique sonic characteristics of the vintage Supros while providing today’s musicians with a lightweight, highly playable instrument that stays in tune and is easy to maintain.

The ten distinctive models in the Americana reissue series come loaded with authentic “Vistatone” pickups, which reproduce the groundbreaking, single-coil design developed by Valco in the early 1950s. These historic reissues are available in two body styles with a range of available hardware options, including piezo body sensors and a newly developed floating vibrato system.
