Supertone S-59

Introducing the 3rd generation Supertone: a hand-crafted modern instrument offering a player-friendly balance of form and function.  With its unique body contours and matching headstock, the design pays homage to vintage instruments while incorporating exotic curves and JBG’s distinctive design features.

The sculpted neck heel is thinner than a conventional bolt-on, for more comfortable access to the upper frets.  The patented Sliplock Neck Joint™ design is comprised of a unique, interlocking mortise and tenon joint that calls for the neck to be press-fit, as well as bolted to the body, thus preventing any shifting of the neck.  This uncompromised union between the neck and body delivers enhanced, singing sustain.  With a body that is shaved to 1-5/8 inches thick, shaped contours, and an average weight of approximately 7.5 pounds, the Supertone is balanced and comfortable to play either standing on stage or sitting in the studio.
