I don't know about the one you have in question but I have a "Supro" resonating guitar with a metal body and a wooden neck, that was made before WWII. It belonged to my grandfather who has been gone for sometime now, and I would like to learn more about it. It doesn't have any other markings besides "SUPRO" at the very top of the neck,so I'm not sure if it was made by the national company or not. Any info anyone else comes up with I would be most appreciative to hear from them. Thank You , Marshall...

WEDGLES HAS BEEN IN BUSINESS SINCE 1937 AND HAS ALWAYS TRIED SATISFING THERE CUSTOMERS. WE HAVE ALWAYS MADE IT A POLICY IF YOUR NOT HAPPY WITH SOMETHING WE WILL TRY AND MAKE IT RIGHT. I BELIEVE JOHN NEVER DID COME BACK AND TRY EXCHANGING HIS PURCHASE IF HE WASN'T SATISFIED.

Re: supro guitar

Supro is a a LA based company, started in the 30's as a budget line of International/Dobro guitars and steels.their first Spanish archtop was made in '35. In '42 National/Dobro was bought out and changed to "Valco" All the Supro solidbodies are post-1951. most where of maple body and bolt on neck type, sometimes with a transducer pickup under the bridge. They started making cut-away archtops(ala Gibson/epiphone) in '55. After 62, Valco used plastic "gumby" headstocks,and fiberglass bodies for the solids.in '64, robert Enghelhart bought them and started making archtops and wood solidbodies again, including repro's of the old Supro designs only with the gumbt headstock. in'68, Valco bought Kay and went under, producing a horde of strange Supro's. A few where again made in the early 80's from frakenstein parts with the Supro name, but are not really Supro's per se. If you have a really old Supro,(pre 60's) the headstock is straight, with perpendicular sides, These vintage cherries also have metal labels. after 62, the archtops had white plastic Supro labels, but are generally still whupass. Hope this helps, GUITARDED CASEY.

Re: supro guitar

I bought this guitar for 250$ at the oldest music pawn
shop in Denver, Wedgles. The owner said it was a SUPRO,
it looked cool like a Goida, with a neo-plastic frame,
and humbuckers, yet it needed electrical work. Does anyone
in the world know what I have, the owner said it is from
the late 60s. can some one clear the mystery. I know its
vintage, and will perhaps never sell it, or ask the
same of anyone I pass it on too. its like super rare.
