Overview

The Jamesport is a 21st-century update of the Supro electric solid-body guitar. The elegant comfort of the 1960’s-era beveled-edge Ozark body shape and the mighty sound of the original field-coil pickup have been enhanced with an ultra-fast satin neck, Tune-o-matic bridge and updated wave tailpiece. The result is a modern player’s instrument with old-school style and authentic Supro tone. 

The unique, Gold Foil pickup found in the Supro Jamesport is faithful reproduction of the original magnetics developed for Valco by Ralph Keller in the early 1950s. These pickups, which gave voice to the vintage Chicago-made Supro guitars, have a massive, broadband sound with remarkably low noise for a single-coil design. The humbucker-sized version of the Supro Gold Foil pickup used in the Jamesport is slightly overwound and located right at the harmonic “sweet spot”, as seen on the original Supro Ozark. 

The time-tested tone wood recipe of an alder body paired with a 25.5 in.-scale maple neck and rosewood fretboard combine with the Jamesport’s vintage-correct pickup to produce an exceptionally dynamic playing experience. Blending vintage American tone with refined set-neck design, the Supro Jamesport is intended for the professional musician who needs an ergonomic and versatile guitar capable of handling most genres of music with authority. While the Jamesport is a single-pickup guitar, it can cover a wide range of tones from twang to blues, funk, rock and jazz by manipulating the on-board tone control.

The Jamesport guitar and its relatives in the Island Series represent the rebirth of the Supro brand as a stringed instrument manufacturer. The Supro Island Series of guitars was designed by David Koltai and Glenn Sweetwood, with technical assistance from master designer Trevor Wilkinson and vintage pickup expert Ken Calvet. Case sold separately.

Comments about Supro Jamesport Electric Guitar:

I was looking for a guitar to replace my Mexican Telecaster. I write a lot of different styles of music, and so I wanted something versatile, to play things like post-rock, art-rock, and singer-songwriter, as well as things like garage rock, punk, and a little bit of metal. I was looking at the Westbury for its two pickups, but I picked up the Jamesport on a daily deal for like $400 off, and I wasn't disappointed.
The single gold-foil pickup sounds fantastic. It's warm but crisp, and excels in pretty much every sound you throw at it. There's a lot of variety in how you can make it sound, and it's super smart placement on the body gives it a really strong resonance that sounds like both a neck and a bridge pickup depending on how you've set it up.
The only issue I've ever had, is that the gold-foil pickup can pick up radio waves, but that's easily solved with a coated cable, which every guitarist should invest in anyways. This also applies to a very small amount of people, I live like a mile from a radio tower, so I picked it up faintly.

It's an awesome guitar with a unique and sexy look, that can handle anything you throw at it.

      Comments about Supro Jamesport Electric Guitar:

      I love this guitar. I bought it on a whim because the price was so right and I wanted something retro and vibey. I'm a slide player, a huge fan of Ry Cooder and David Lindley and I was interested in experiencing the gold foil pickup in a tight modern Guitar. I was not disappointed. I asked the guy at my local store if he knew anything about it and he said "it's OK. The pickup isn't as full as a humbucker or as bright as a tele, just OK". Contrary to his intention he sold me right there, that sounded like exactly what I wanted. I like the single coils, I have an American tele and an old strat. I love them both but was in the mood for something different. The pickup is quite powerful but even through multiple overdrives, one of which is a Rat, every note in a chord, every string is clear and discrete. I'm having some trouble with intonation of heavy gauge strings but I think I'll get it worked out. It sounds great, feels great and is very fun to play. Hard to beat for $499.
