What's up with this Supro from NAMM?

For guitars of the straight waisted variety (or reverse offset).

What's up with this Supro from NAMM?

Saw this in an email add.

Looks great and how they should have come out the first time. Anyone know the scoop on it?

Supro super-worked the product placement angle this year. Their shit was everywhere.

That guitar is beautiful. Very interested in it. Wonder if they're going to release that sucker. Would love to see it in other finishes

Is that not very close to a Rhoney Oceana? I know the Oceana was Supro inspired but this looks to be inspired by the inspired.

I like that old time rock 'n' roll, don't try to take me to a disco.

Yeah, they're definitely similar. I loved the Rhoney I used to own, but since he is no longer making them these are very appealing. And I'm sure at a significantly lower cost.

Here is a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_cont ... Ps5jqA242E of what seems like another model with a similar look.

I love my Supro, and this one looks great.
