Released in conjunction with Nashville based guitarist, Ford Thurston, The Conquistador is a guitar that has one eye on Supro’s rich instrument history and the other on the future. Semi hollow in design the Conquistador takes the classic Supro double-cut offset silhouette and increases its proportions to ES-335 size. Add to that the combination of an Alnico 3 PAF style humbucker in the bridge, a mini-humbucker sized, Gold foil pickup in the neck and a Bigsby B7 Vibrato and you have the recipe for a versatile guitar for a wide variety of musical styles from rock to jazz, blues, country and everything in-between.
Specs include mahogany semi-hollow body with centre block finished in Trans British Racing Green finish with Natural Mahogany back and sides. Slim, satin finished Mahogany neck with a Pau Ferro, 24.75” scale, 12” radius fingerboard with Medium-jumbo 6150 frets, 3-per-side Kluson-style tuners. Tune-o-matic style with nylon saddles, Bigsby B7 vibrato tailpiece, Mini-humbucker-sized gold-foil (neck), Alnico 3 PAF-style humbucker (bridge) pickups wired to Neck and bridge volumes, master tone.
The guitar is in excellent condition and comes with a decent aftermarket Hard case.
