1575JB Black Holiday Electric Guitar

Product Information

The Black Holiday is an all-new Supro instrument, based on the Chicago-made, reso-glass guitars of the 1960s. While the vintage Supro instruments were constructed entirely of fiberglass, our updated construction technique mates a newly developed composite "Acousti-glass" top to a chambered mahogany back for greater semi-acoustic resonance and tuning stability over the originals. The Supro Black Holiday's Art Deco lines and two-knob control layout combine elements from several different Supro reso-glass models of the past to create a new guitar that is worthy of a place alongside the reissues of these iconic American guitars.

The Supro Black Holiday 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.

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