Res-O-Glass Supro Arlington S655

This beautiful and quasi-mint Supro Arlington S655 may have a a classic (though inevitably elegant) Jaguar-style body - being not as radical as some other Supros and neighbour brands (it's a vast topic)  - but it has two Supro characteristics that make it cool and rare: a fiberglass body (aka Res-O-Glass) and a piezo pickup under the bridge that make it sound like no other guitar. 

This makes it not only a collector's treasure but also a desirably playable instrument! And of course you cannot not love the big faux-tortoise pickguard and the six rectangle switch in line - the guy who will buy this guitar will be a lucky fellow indeed!
