Supro has revealed a reissue of their 1961 Dual Tone, which pays tribute to the model David Bowie played on his 2003 Reality album and tour.
The new Dual Tone has a few new tweaks including a mirror-finish Bowie lighting bolt logo on the headstock. The tummycut body is constructed from mahogany and features Bowie’s favoured 12 inch radius pau ferro fretboard set into a 24.75 inch maple neck.
As far as hardware goes, there’s a tune-o-matic bridge, butterfly tulip tuning pegs and period correct Vistatone pickups, as well as the distinctive reverse stair step tailpiece.
Supro states that the first batch of four hundred David Bowie Dual Tones will be released on January 8th, in time for his birthday. Each guitar will be numbered by hand and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
