    Beautiful Look and Sound

    I saw this guitar at NAMM, 2017 and had to have one. The overall build quality and tone did not disappoint. The tones from this guitar are fantastic; a welcome alternative soundscape in the Fender 5-way landscape. These pickups are pure magic. And it plays like a dream, now.

    Why an average rating then? This guitar was poorly setup. Intonation was way off, relief was way off, and the nut slots were deep and caused the strings to "plink" while tuning. The 1/4 jack was loose, and the bass strings were buzzy, too. And since the guitar does not come with a manual, nor does Supro's web page have any technical support material for the guitars, it's anyone's guess how it is supposed to be setup.

    Supro did respond to my e-mail and the guitar is mostly sorted after pulling out the nut files, wrenches and screwdrivers. So my only lingering gripe is that the guitar does not come with a case or gig bag. An Indonesian guitar at this price point should come with a hard case, like an American Strat would. Sweetwater did throw in a gig bag, so that's very nice of them. Sweetwater customer service is the best.
