60s Supro Belmont

Here's a very, very clean Supro Belmont. It's got a wood body, not "Res-o-glass" like the later Supro and Airline guitars that Jack White has popularized - but I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that wood is probably the way to go for a guitar body. I know, I know - call me crazy! If you like weird, though, this still might cover you - what looks like a normal paint job is actually some kind of red plastic coating! The single bridge pickup distinguishes itself with a full-bodied twang...

...and it plays pretty nice, too. Gotta love the "Gumby" headstock and miraculously unmolested Supro badge!
