The Island Series guitars are updated, high-performance instruments based on the 1962 version of the Supro Ozark.

Ergonomic Design

The timeless curves of this vintage Supro Ozark solid body guitar design have been enhanced with ergonomic, set-neck construction, a satin-neck finish with a comfortable 12” radius, dual-action truss rod and gently rolled fretboard edges.

Our fast playing, satin finish set neck is joined by a Tune-O-Matic Bridge, contemporary Kluson-style tuners and a newly designed  “Wave” tailpiece to give the Island series guitars world class performance and modern reliability with authentic Supro style and vibrant tone.

Gold Foil Pickups

The unique Gold Foil pickups found in the Supro Island Series guitars are faithful reproductions of the original “Clear Tone” units developed for Valco by Ralph Keller in the early 1950s.

The unique magnetics found in the Supro Gold Foil pickups utilize a “field-coil” design to provide excellent string-to-string balance and broadband frequency response with remarkably low noise for an over-wound single coil. This signature clarity of our Gold Foil pickups makes them perfect for use with all types of effects and over-driven tube amps.
