Supro Jet Airliner lands in Europe

Supro Jet Airliner Lap Steel Guitar

Now available from the team at Supro is the Jet Airliner Lap Steel Guitar (1466BW)

Designed by David Koltai, with technical assistance from master designer Trev Wilkinson and vintage pickup expert Ken Calvet, this is an updated reissue of the Supro electric lap steel guitar that was manufactured in the early 1960s.

The Jet Airliner’s vintage-correct body shape and ‘Art Deco’ aesthetics are enhanced with an intonation-friendly, string-through-body hardtail bridge, whilst the unique Silver Foil pickup found in the Supro Jet Airliner is a faithful reproduction of the original “Clear-tone” unit developed for Valco by Ralph Keller in the early 1950s. This has a massive, broadband sound with remarkably low noise for a single-coil design.

The humbucker-sized version of the Supro Silver Foil pickup used in the Jet Airliner is slightly overwound and located right at the harmonic ‘sweet spot’

Ideal for a wide variety of styles such as country, blues, western swing and rock, the Jet Airliner comes complete with carry bag and is available from all Supro dealers for just £369 UK rrp.
