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