This is a Supro 60, "Super Sixty", made by National/Valco in 1957. Totally 100% percent original, this guitar has a single cutaway solid body with two perimeter lines and the "60" logo. It features one metal covered, single coil pickup where the strings pass between the pickup and the cover. It also features a slim fretboard across, on a thick strong neck. Called the "Kord King" neck, it allows for easy, fast and low action. The Valco patented construction insures that the neck remains sturdy and has a long life. The straight neck still plays wonderfully. The action is super low and fast but allows you to dig in for great rhythm and lead "take-off" playing. This Supro 60 is in good condition particularly for its age and it sounds amazing. Don't let this Supro 60 slip through your fingers. It comes with a vintage hard shell case.Description from VintageSilvertones.com
