Supro Americana Series Sahara - Wedgewood Blue Metallic 1570WB-U
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 Vistatone pickup found in the Supro Sahara is a reproduction of the groundbreaking, single-coil design developed for Valco by Ralph Keller in the early 1950s. The Vistatone pickup is cited as prior art in Seth Lover’s PAF patent and is found in many of the most desirable vintage Supro models.
