1956 Supro Belmont – £899

Prices of Supro / National / Airline guitars are increasing steadily, possibly made more desirable because of Jack White / White Stripes. This 1956 Supro Belmont is in very good condition. With a peanut body, deep red finish, and gold hardware, the Belmont is as visually striking as it is tonally rich and dynamic. The oversized single coil pickup is powered by a large ceramic magnet, and the tone is quintessential Supro, with power, bark, and glassy shimmer when strummed with a pick. It doesn’t get any simpler than a single pickup with Volume and Tone knobs, yet the Belmont makes the most of this basic layout and rolling off the tone knob gives you some very warm jazzy tones that are still defined and focused. There’s plenty of twang and grit to be had too, giving an epic blues tone. The guitar is in all original condition, with excellent playability, just a couple of areas on the body edge where the plastic / vinyl finish is starting to lift. The guitar comes in what appears to be it’s original hard case.
