1524EW Dual Tone Americana - Ermine White



Stock: Item in stock
[1 available]

1524EW Dual Tone Americana - Ermine White - The Dual-Tone is a reproduction of Supro�s two-pickup, Ermine White, fiberglass 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 Dual-Tone�s vintage-correct tuners, Art Deco stairstep 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.

Vistatone Pickups

The Vistatone pickups found in the Supro Dual-Tone are 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.

Legendary Sound

The Supro Dual-Tone has a powerful, electric swamp-blues tone that is anything but subtle. It�s a gnarly sounding instrument that loves tube amps and fuzz pedals of all kinds. The neck pickup sounds huge and wooly, while the bridge pickup has an unmistakable midrange growl that is downright dirty.

Our semi-hollow recipe of an Acousti-glass top and chambered body retains the unique sonic characteristics of the original reso-glass models while providing today�s musicians with a lightweight, highly playable instrument that stays in tune and is easy to maintain.
