model name / number: Lexington
TIME CAPSULE !! BLAST FROM THE PAST !!

This is a circa 1965 Supro Lexington guitar, made in Chicago by Valco / Supro, Incredible condition for a 57-year-old instrument. You could search forever, but it would be very difficult to find another in this condition. This one shows only light wear and patina for its age. If this guitar had been manufactured in 2022, the condition might be considered very good, but for a guitar of this vintage, it is outstanding.

Notable features of this guitar are the original Vista-tone pickups, which produce a uniquely vintage 60's sound that you don't often hear anymore, and the original whammy bar which is very unusual to find. If you've searched for Lexingtons before you'll know that most of them have lost their trem-bars to history. Also notable are a few upgrades and improvements this guitar has had: the original floating bridge has been replaced by a fixed tune-o-matic, the original tuning machines have been upgraded with modern Kluson Deluxe reproduction nickel tuners, and the original nylon string tree has been replaced with an improved metal version. The original parts are included if you prefer to undo the modifications. Note that holes were drilled for tune-o-matic bridge studs which would be underneath the floating bridge base. Case not included. This guitar will fit in a Strat-style case or gig bag. The last photo is a page from the 1965 Supro catalog.
