Supro has added a range of basses to its distinctive guitar line. The Huntington basses are newly-designed, short-scale bass combining the classic body shape of the early ’60s Ozark model with vintage-correct passive electronics and sonic inspiration from the Supro Pocket Bass of the same era. The unique Gold Foil pickups found in the Huntington bass are authentic replicas of the original “Clear-Tone” pickups found in the vintage Supro Violin, Taurus and Pocket Bass models. UK and ROI distributor JHS says: ‘These high-output single coils deliver legendary, deep low-end, with very low noise and a massive, broadband sound that stays warm and balanced across the entire range of the instrument’.
Available in single, double and triple-pickup configurations with an optional piezo bridge and a variety of unique metallic and transparent colours, the Huntingtons also provide a choice of mahogany, swamp ash or alder tonewood for the body. The maple necks have a smooth, black satin finish and 30″ short-scale length, with a glued-in, set-neck joint that provides ergonomic access to the entire rosewood fretboard.
Prices will range from £899 to £1,149 and the models are available immediately.
