Supro has announced a reissue of its 1961 hardtail Dual Tone guitar.

The new version of the guitar, which was famously used by David Bowie on his Reality album and its subsequent tour, features a 12”-radius pau ferro fretboard on its 24.75”- scale set maple neck.

The Dual Tone's mahogany body features a tummy cut and an ergonomic neck joint, a reverse stair step tailpiece, tune-o-matic bridge, butterfly tulip tuning pegs and a matched set of period-correct Vistatone pickups. The guitar also comes with a mirror-finish Bowie lightning bolt logo on the headstock.

The reissued hardtail Dual Tone will be available at the end of January for $999 and will include a deluxe gigbag and certificate of authenticity.
