1933 Supertone 0-size, 12-fret in ladder-braced birch, 1 3/4” nut, 2 5/16” string spacing, great example in original finish
I can’t say enough about the pre-war Supertone as they are a perennial favorite in my shop. They are well built, nice looking and fine sounding. This example is no exception showing very little signs of play over the years. Affordable vintage parlor that’s suitable for many playing styles.
SPECS: 0-size body, 12-fret neck, ladder-braced birch top, sides and back, slotted headstock, original tuning machines, steel reinforced poplar neck with “V” neck profile, ebony fretboard with new frets and MOP markers, original checkered binding, rosewood bridge, bone pins, nut and saddle. Nut width: 1 3/4”, String Spacing: 2 5/16”, Scale length: 24”, Upper bout: 9 1/2”, Lower Bout: 13 1/4”, Body length: 17 3/4“, Widest body depth: 3 5/8”, Overall length: 36 3/8” , Neck thickness at 1st fret: 15/16”, Neck thickness at 5th fret: 1”, Action: 1/8”, string gauge setup: custom light 52-11s
CONDITION: Fine original condition save the bridge, fretboard/frets and updated bracing. Minor scuffs to finish here and there. Work included neckset, fresh bracing update, and repairs to seams, braces, bridgeplate, bridge, touchups and setup.
SOUND: Full voice with better than average projection for a ladder braced birch parlor. Fun for roots and old time classics, this guitar can take strumming, flatpicking or barefingers.
