When an Iconic start met an iconic guitar.
Based on David Bowie's iconic 1961 Supro Dual Tone, featured on the "Reality" album, this instrument carries the echoes of rock-and-roll history, being also similar to the guitar Link Wray played on the classic "Rumble." Loaded with loving recreations of Supro's Vistatone pickups, it's got a snarling, biting tone all its own, and the classic Supro/Valco sense of retro-modern style. Don't think it's just a reproduction, though. Supro has updated the guitar with a modern ergonomic neck joint and a tummy cut for easy upper fret access and more comfortable playing. The mirrored headstock adds a suitable touch of Bowie's inimitable style, just as icing on the guitar that he dearly loved. Includes gig bag.
