NAMM 2019: Supro has announced a reissue of its 1961 hardtail Dual Tone, which featured heavily on David Bowie’s Reality album and tour.
This new version features a number of tweaks to the Bowie-favoured formula, including a 12”-radius pau ferro fretboard on the 24.75”- scale set maple neck.
The guitar’s mahogany body features a tummy cut and ergonomic neck joint, while hardware includes a reverse stair step tailpiece, tune-o-matic bridge, butterfly tulip tuning pegs and a matched set of period-correct Vistatone pickups.
Plus, there’s a natty mirror-finish Bowie lightning bolt logo on the headstock - just like last year’s Bigsby-equipped Limited Edition Dual Tone.
The limited-edition, individually numbered David Bowie 1961 Dual Tone will be available at the end of January for £999, including a deluxe gigbag and certificate of authenticity. Head over to Supro USA for more info.
