National Supro Guitar

without comments

Supro is a brand name used for resonator guitars built by Valco, so talking about a National Supro guitar is something of a misnomer.  However, because Valco was formed by three of the former owners of National, it is fair to say that the Supro is more or less a National instrument under a different name.  Founded in the 1930s, Valco produced a number of different Spanish acoustic guitars, resonator guitars, and electric lap steel guitars.  However, the company would merge with Kay Musical Instrument Company in 1967, and the merged company would go bankrupt in 1988.

Finding a National Supro guitar isn’t too difficult these days, mostly because they aren’t quite as collectible as those made directly by National or by Dobro.  However, that doesn’t mean they aren’t great instruments.  A vintage Supro circa 1960, for example, is often sought by collectors.  It’s sometimes referred to as a Val-Trol, although this actually refers to the six tone and volume controls knobs, not the model itself.  This type of Supro in good condition will set you back about $1,200.
