The Westbury is a 21st-century update of the Supro electric
solidbody guitar. The elegant comfort of the 1960’s-era beveled-edge Ozark body
shape and the mighty sound of the original field-coil pickups have been
enhanced with an ultra-fast satin neck, Tune-o-matic bridge and updated wave
The result is a modern player’s instrument with old-school
style and authentic Supro tone!
The unique Gold Foil pickups found in the Supro Westbury are
faithful reproductions of the original magnetics developed for Valco by Ralph
Keller in the early 1950s. These pickups, which gave voice to the vintage
Chicago-made Supro guitars, have a massive, broadband sound with remarkably low
noise for a single-coil design.
The humbucker-sized Gold Foil bridge pickup found in the
Westbury is slightly overwound, while the neck pickup is reverse-wound in order
to provide fully hum-cancelling sound when the two pickups are combined by
selecting the middle position of the 3-way toggle switch.
The time-tested tone-wood recipe of an alder body paired
with a 25 ½”-scale maple neck and rosewood fretboard combine with the Westbury’s
vintage-correct pickups to produce an exceptionally dynamic playing experience.
Blending vintage American tone with refined set-neck design,
the Supro Westbury is intended for the professional musician who needs an
ergonomic and versatile guitar capable of handling most genres of music with
authority. The Westbury’s dual-pickup configuration lets the player switch
effortlessly between warm, single-coil neck pickup sounds, throaty bridge
tones, or a perfectly balanced, parallel combination of both pickups for rhythm
