Supro’s Gold Foil pickups are onboard for low-noise yet high-output single-coil tones, which the company is touting as ideal for rock, blues, funk and R&B.

The Silverwood is available now for $899 for Daphne Blue and Ash Natural, and $849 for British Racing Green and Transparent Red - pop over to Supro USA for more info.

It follows the Ozark and Tri Tone in Supro’s line-up of vintage reissues.
