The Supro Lexington range consisted of three guitars, and like it's more expensive sibling, the Supro Arlington, it was clearly influenced by guitars like the Harmony Silhouette, and ultimately the Fender Jaguar. Unlike the Arlington's fibreglass body, the Lexington range was solid wood. The three models were S625 (one pickup), S635 (two pickups) and S645 (three pickups).
The following description comes from the 1966 catalogue. The Supro Lexington S625, S635 and S645 models are all featured.
Truly deluxe in every way, all models in this popular series include the following features: lifetime Kord King necks, rosewood fingerboards with dot pattern position markers; deluxe chhrome plated vibrato tailpiece; fully adjustable metal roller type bridge; all are solid wood bodies with lustre rubbed sunburst finish; individual string volume adjustment screws on all pickup units; separate volume and tone controls for each unit; instant command "on-off" and "tone" rocker switches operate each unit on two and three unit models. This unique switch system allows you to instantly select any combination of pickup units and related tone shadings you desire
