The 2019 version is available in a range of transparent finishes - Ash Natural, British Racing Green, Daphne Blue and Transparent Red - over a mahogany or ash body with a glued-in, set-neck joint.

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 (opens in new tab) for more info.

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