Comments Here’s a really cool Supro Super model, built in 1960. Even less usually, this is a two-pickup model. The Super is a short-scale – 22 inch! – guitar likely intended for students.

This instrument features a ‘silverburst’ finish, basically a white to black sunburst; this has also been used by Gibson on some Les Paul Custom models and by Fender, who named it ‘Antigua’.

A very cool little vintage guitar in good condition, and just killer for slide.

Serial Number T45768, built in 1960.

Pricing $899 CAD with original case. SOLD
Neck Bolt on neck, either maple or poplar, with rosewood fingerboard. No adjustable truss rod. 12 frets to the body and 22″ scale length.
Frets Original frets with minor wear.
Body Solid body, likely poplar, single cutaway.
Finish Original nitrocellulose lacquer finish, ‘Silverburst’, in decent condition with a few dings and scratches.
