Supro Lexington

Solid-body electric guitar

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.

I have the Supro in the middle (two pickups) bought brand new at Baldwins Music December 1965. The guitar was about 165.00. Christmas gift from my parents.
