Supro Triple Tone 1959 - Black & Gold
The Supro Triple tone is a super rare bird and it took Frank years of searching all over the U.S. to find this guitar. Cataloged for only one year, 1959, it's the Fancy Nancy cousin of the Supro Dual Tone.
Fit and finish on this Triple Tone like the raised double pick guards, the stair step tailpiece, and the butterfly Kluson key tuners all add into the pleasing aesthetic nature of these guitars.
The best part? The legendary single coil pickups designed by Ralph Keller that deliver that vintage Valco sound: 9.37k at the bridge, 8.80k at the middle, and 9.30k at the neck.
Frank had some work done on this guitar including a refret, the 3-way switch swapped for a 5-way, and the pickups moved around so the in between positions are hum-canceling. There is also some paint loss on the back of the neck.
