    Supro to launch Island Series Baritone Guitar line at NAMM
     
     
    Thursday, January 18, 2018 (Port Jefferson Station, NY) – Supro USA will unveil a series of baritone guitars at next week’s NAMM show in Anaheim, California. The Supro Island Series Baritone applies the award-winning, retro-modern aesthetics of the Supro Hampton and Westbury guitar models to a 26.75” scale instrument that can be comfortably tuned to low A, B or C. The Supro Baritone features a satin-finished maple neck with a rosewood fretboard, and a choice of either ash or mahogany tone wood for the body. The instrument’s set-neck design utilizes an easy-access heel joint, a 12” fretboard radius, and jumbo fret wire to provide world-class playability—all the way up the neck.

    Djent Black

     

    The Natural Ash version of the Hampton Baritone features a gloss finish on the body with a satin neck for ultra-smooth, fast-playing feel. The Djent Black version of the Hampton Baritone has a mahogany body with a satin finish covering the entire instrument. Nir Felder plays the Supro Island Series Hampton Baritone in Djent Black The Hampton Baritone features a trio of Mini Gold Foil pickups on a 5-way switch. This Strat-style pickup configuration provides hi-fi, low-noise, single-coil pickup tones from the neck, middle and bridge, as well as scooped and funky “in-between” sounds in the 2 & 4 positions. The middle pickup is reverse-wound for hum-free operation when combined with either of the outer pickups.   "The Hampton really nails the concept of a compact baritone. It growls and snaps like full-size, plus it's so comfortable to play!" – Mark Lettieri (Snarky Puppy) Andy Pitcher plays the Supro Island Series Hampton Baritone
