The extremely rare Supro Triple Tone guitar was produced for only a single year in 1959. Now, Supro is reintroducing the tuxedo-black, 3-pickup, art deco instrument in a new iteration, the Tri Tone.
In addition to classic looks, the new model boasts modernizations like set-neck construction, a tune-o-matic bridge and increased access to the upper frets. The guitar also shares the cutaway body shape of Supro’s Dual Tone model.
Other features on the Tri Tone include a solid mahogany body, a fully bound hard rock maple neck and a 12”-radius pau ferro fretboard.
And while the original Triple Tone featured three Ralph Keller-designed Vistatone single-coils, the new model combines a pair of authentic Vistatone pickups in the neck and middle positions with an overwound Super Alnico unit in the bridge. There’s also dedicated volume knobs for each pickup, a 5-way selector switch and a master volume control.
The Tri Tone is available for $999.
