OVERVIEW

Old-school style and authentic Supro tone.

The Hampton 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 pickups 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 pickups found in the Supro Hampton are faithful reproductions 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 mini-humbucker-sized version of the Supro Gold Foil pickup found in this guitar have the same internal construction as the humbucker-sized versions found in the other Island Series models. The Hampton’s bridge pickup is wound slightly hotter than the others, while the middle pickup is RWRP, providing fully hum-cancelling sound in the “2 and 4” positions of the 5-way blade switch. 

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 Hampton’s vintage-correct pickups to produce an exceptionally dynamic playing experience. Blending vintage American tone with refined set-neck design, the Supro Hampton is intended for the professional musician who needs an ergonomic and versatile guitar capable of handling most genres of music with authority. The three pickups cover a huge range of tones, from fat single-coil jazz tones in the neck position to spanky funk tones and sparkling twang in the middle, and pure rock power when the bridge pickup is selected.  

The Hampton 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 Hampton Electric Guitar:

    Until just recently there were two pickup types that I hadn't had any experience with; gold foils & TV jones.
    After being able to play both of those types over the last month, I really like the gold foils...a lot! This 3 pickup model can you get you solidly into "Stratish" tones in postions 2 & 4, (due to I suspect RWRP of the middle p'up) but the tone is distinctly different from a Strat. Switch to the bridge p'up and you can get very easily into humbucker territory, good HB tones albiet not quite the power of a full-on bucker. It handles both clean and dirty tones well. I'd say these gold foils most resemble a mini humbucker, but again these are something different in the tone department. I like that...somthing different!
    The guitar balances well on a strap, it's comfortable to play, nice and light and has a nice feeling neck that fits the hands well (I'm not a fan of baseball bat type necks). The back of the neck almost feels like "smooth aluminum" it's a different feel, but fast and I like it. While this guitar competes just fine for lead work, I really like it for rhythm. Position 2 with the middle & bridge just has this vey cool tone that seems unique to the gold foil p'ups.
    I bought this guitar because I got a good price on it and just figured I'd re-sell if it wasn't up to my expectations. But after playing it for about a month, it's worked it's way into the "keepers" category and on this one, I'm happy to have taken "the path less traveled"!
