Description

The Coronado II Vibrato is a reproduction of the two-pickup, vibrato bar-equipped, wide-body Supro electric guitar that was first manufactured in the early 1960s. The Coronado reissue mates a chambered Mahogany back with a newly-developed, composite “Acousti-glass” top. This updated construction preserves the instrument’s signature aesthetics and timeless sound while improving its semi-hollow acoustic resonance and tuning stability.

The Coronado’s vintage-correct tuners, Art Deco stairstep tailpiece and adjustable rosewood bridge are joined by a faithful replica of the legendary Vistatone pickup to bring you a fully realized and worthy reissue of this classic Supro guitar. The Vistatone pickups found in the Supro Coronado are a reproduction of the groundbreaking, single coil design developed for Valco by Ralph Keller in the early 1950s. The Vistatone pickup is cited as prior art in Seth Lover’s PAF patent and is found in many of the most desirable vintage Supro models.

The Supro Coronado has a powerful, electric swamp-blues tone that is anything but subtle. It’s a gnarly sounding instrument that loves tube amps and fuzz pedals of all kinds. The neck pickup sounds huge and wooly while the bridge pickup has an unmistakable midrange growl that is downright dirty. Supro's semi-hollow recipe of an Acousti-glass top and mahogany body retains the unique sonic characteristics of the original res-o-glass models while providing today’s musicians with a lightweight, highly playable instrument that stays in tune and is easy to maintain. Case not included.

The Coronado guitar and its relatives in the Americana Series of Supro electric guitars were designed by Trevor Wilkinson and David Koltai to capture the spirit and sound of the Art Deco-influenced, historic line of Supro instruments.

Awesome Pickups

Overall I love this guitar. The pickups are some of my all time favorites. I've seen them described as somewhere between a single coil and a P-90...and I agree. The guitar is solid and feels well made...I was worried it might feel toyish because of the acousti-glass top. The only issue I have with it is the tremolo...it's terrible. If I'd paid full price I'd be sending it back because of it. It feels junky. The ones on the originals look like a better design...not sure why they messed with it. I feel like the whammy screws up an otherwise amazing guitar.

Surprisingly beautiful

I was skeptical on the Coronado II because of the Reso Glass plastic shell. Boy was I surprised. The guitar sounds fantastic. The pickups sound well rounded. Deep clean clarity. They will also punch you in the face if you let them. I play through a Marshall DSL 1W 50th Anniversary and matches very well with the Coronado on clean and dirty. The mahogany body is hidden underneath a clam shell of shiny plastic. The guitar is heavy, I'd say 8 or 9 lbs. very well made, does not feel like a toy. The vibrato works great but its not meant for dives. So glad I got one at this great price before they are gone. Thank you Sam Ash! I also snagged a tobacco flame Westbury before they sold out. Feels like I got two for price of one. Supro makes great guitars. Highly recommend.
