Supro Guitar and Bass Amplifiers

Instruments branded Supro

Supro guitars were first produced in the 1930s by the National Dobro Corporation (rebranding as Valco in the 1940s), with the first solid body electrics produced in the early 1950s. The company produced guitars with numerous names on the headstock, with Supro and National being the best known. They produced some interesting guitars in the 1960s, including some of the earliest fiberglas-bodied instruments; financial pressure necessitated a merger with Kay of Chicago in 1967, but the new comapany only managed to limp on until 1968, before folding and ending all guitar production.

I picked up a vintage Supro single pick up electric guitar and am having a real hard time finding out the year/model. Is there any way you can help me? From what I understand, it is a 1966 or 67?
