Overview

The Belmont is a reproduction of the single-pickup, fiberglass Supro electric guitar that was first manufactured in the early 1960s. The Belmont reissue mates a chambered mahogany back with a newly-developed, composite “Acousti-glass” top. This updated construction preserves the instrument’s signature aesthetics and timeless sound, while improving its semi-hollow acoustic resonance and tuning stability.

The Belmont’s vintage-correct tuners, dobro tailpiece and adjustable rosewood bridge are joined by a faithful replica of the legendary Vistatone pickup to bring you a fully realized and worthy reissue of this classic Supro guitar. The Vistatone pickup found in the Supro Belmont is a reproduction of the groundbreaking, single coil design developed for Valco by Ralph Keller in the early 1950s. The Vistatone pickup is cited as prior art in Seth Lover’s PAF patent and is found in many of the most desirable vintage Supro models. 

The Supro Belmont is acoustically loud—and its electric tone is pure 1960’s rock ‘n’ roll, with an aggressive mid-range voice that does not sound like any other instrument. Our semi-hollow recipe of an Acousti-glass top and mahogany body retains the unique sonic characteristics of the original res-o-glass models while providing today’s musicians with a lightweight, highly playable instrument that stays in tune and is easy to maintain. 

The Belmont guitar and its relatives in the Americana Series of Supro electric guitars were designed by Trevor Wilkinson and David Koltai to capture the spirit and sound of the Art Deco-influenced, historic line of Supro instruments.

      Comments about Supro Belmont Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar:

      This is my 2nd Supro , my other is the Jamesport which is outstanding as well . Guitar was set up perfect. Intonation was dead nuts. Which is a relief after fighting with my Memphis semi hollow led paul for months. Supro does the tone control right. Most guitars you can roll the tone off a quarter and it'll still be a useful sound . With this one you can roll it back 3/4 And have a nice bassier sound . I'm starting to to believe that just one pickup in a guitar is the way to go . This guitar shreds
